Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary
|Right from the very first page Someone Else's Skin grabbed my attention. It starts off with the main character Marnie Rome at a murder scene which leaves her devastated. The story then goes back to the present day, where Marnie is now a Detective Inspector. Along with Detective Sergeant Noah Jake they are visiting a women's refuge to speak to someone who can assist them in a case. As soon as they arrive however they stumble across a man bleeding heavily from a stab wound.|
This is the start of a rollercoaster of twists and turns that this book takes you on. I could hardly put the book down it kept my attention throughout and it never really had any dull moments. There is some violence in the book but I don't think it is too over the top.
Marnie Rome was one of the most interesting characters I have read in a long time. Her back story was a great one and it really added depth to the character. I liked the fact that she wasn't perfect and that even though she projected a confident and together exterior that wasn't totally accurate.
Overall this book was a great read, all of the characters brought something to the story. The ending was good and I was happy with how the story was concluded. I would love to read more books following Marnie Rome so I do hope that there will be a second in the series!
Five stars from me!
Thank you for my Goodreads First Reads copy.
Since I wrote this review there have been more books released in the series. If they are as compelling as this book they will be well worth a read!
