‘Left me in awe’ #BookReview SOMEONE ELSE’S SKIN, Sarah Hilary @sarah_hilary @headlinepg

“Gritty yet descriptive, imaginative yet never falls back on cliché”


Called to a women’s refuge to take a routine witness statement, DI Marnie Rome instead walks in on an attempted murder.

Trying to uncover the truth from layers of secrets, Marnie finds herself confronting her own demons.  Because she, of all people, knows that it can be those closest to us we should fear the most . . .


Okay, okay, I’m very late to discover the DI Marnie Rome series, by Sarah Hilary – but my goodness, it was worth the wait.

Each sentence has purpose and drive, whether to create evocative imagery or to push the story forward. There is no flab to this book, and it left me in awe as a writer. Sarah Hilary has a wonderful style that is gritty yet descriptive, imaginative yet never falls back on cliché… TO READ IN FULL, CLICK HERE
