“A cracking good thriller, tense and unpredictable .”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Well I can see why Someone Else’s Skin won the Theakstons Old Peculier crime novel of the year award. It’s got everything you want in a crime novel: crime, multiple theories twists and a cracking police officer as the main character.
We are introduced DI Marnie Rome and her team. Rome and one of her sergeants, Noah Jake arrive at a women’s refuge to quiz a woman about the misdemeanours of her brothers only to find a man bleeding to death from a stab wound and his wife in a state. This chance visit causes a chain reaction of events leading to missing persons but who is pulling the strings?
