Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Under Your Skin begins with a very intriguing premise. Gaby Mortimer, out for an early morning jog, finds the body of a young woman in a copse. The police are called and it is soon established that a murder has taken place. After giving what information she has Gaby goes on her way. But very soon the police are returning for more questions and she is horrified to find that she is being investigated as the possible murderer.

These events take place in prosperous North London. Gaby is a daytime TV presenter and her husband Philip is a hardworking high-earning finance executive. She is bright, witty and insightful into her own lifestyle which she sees as increasingly vapid and meaningless. She is sure her husband is thinking about leaving her and she is aware that her job is not very highly regarded. The centre of her world is her daughter, Millie, whom she adores.

Soon the terrifying spectre of being accused of murder comes into view. She becomes increasingly wary of those around her. She wonders how much her Polish nanny can be trusted, the police seem determined to twist every little detail against her and she doesn't feel she can look to her husband for support. She makes contact with a sympathetic reporter, Jack, and he is keen to pursue areas of investigation to help her. But after a few days she wonders if she can actually trust him.

This psychological thriller is a terrific read. All the characters are brilliantly portrayed - who wouldn't want a friend like Clara? The dialogue is smart and snappy. Gaby is an extremely likeable woman and you can't help but wish her well as she becomes embroiled in a nightmare world of deception and false evidence.

Sabine Durrant keeps us guessing right to the end as to who is to be trusted. The plotting is virtually faultless. Books are often advertised as "unputdownable" but this is definitely in that category!

After reading 'Remember me this way', my first reaction on getting paid was to purchase this book as well. However had I known exactly what was in store for me I don't think I could have waited that long.

The major strength of this book, for me is the high quality of Sabine's writing, her ability to create genuine suspense and her intuitive understanding of human relationships, that draws us into the narrative to suffer along with the hapless heroine who appears to be caught in a nightmare situation, somewhat reminiscent of Kafka's 'The Trial'. She stumbles across a body on a morning run, and suddenly her whole life starts to unravel, the police appear to suspect her, her job as a TV presenter is in jeopardy and worst of all her marriage seems to be drifting away from her. Yet again, I meant to take this book slowly and savour it, but ending up reading it in one go. It's a fair while since I've read a book so good that my first reaction on finishing it, was to start reading through it again.

If you are tired of overhyped thrillers, with cardboard thin characters and write by numbers plots, where you have guessed the outcome with the first few pages, this book might be exactly what you are looking for. Just buy it, don't read the one-star reviews (one contains a major spoiler)

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Nicola in South Yorkshire VINE VOICE on 4 May 2013
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love a good psychological thriller and this book fits the bill. The story is told by Gaby Mortimer, a daytime television presenter who finds the body of a woman in the woods near her home. Unexpectedly she finds herself under suspicion by the police who think that she had something to do with the murder.

I found this to be a complete page turner. It's a very easy book to read and it just flows and made me want to read just another page, and another one...... It's been a while since I've devoured a book so quickly.

The ending was a clever surprise and it made me want to go back and flick through the story again. I think the author did a great job of making sure that readers don't know what to expect.

This is a gripping story, one I enjoyed every minute of and if you like psychological thrillers then I'd say it's one of the best examples of the genre that I have read.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Mar. 2013
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A must read for 2013 for anyone out there that loves a good whodunit. Gaby Mortimer, the female half of Mornin' All's daytime television programme, finds a body on one early morning run. She calls the police, gives a statement, goes home and gets ready for work. Over the next few days more details and evidence are found by DI Perivale which appears to tie Gaby to the dead young woman, Ania Dudek, evidence that Gaby can't explain.

This book is firmly set in today's world, Gaby's job as a minor celebratory means that the journalists have a field day with their play on words and opportune photos. Gaby is courted by these journalists, her job seems to be in danger with her seat on the sofa is waiting to be taken by a younger ambitious colleague and Gaby's super successful husband Philip has to leave her side to do something very important abroad. Gaby realises she has no local friends and quickly becomes isolated and frightened as the Police and a stalker pursue her.

This book has a fantastic ending; I thought I had it all sewn up, but there was a final twist that caught me out.

Warning: don't start reading this unless you have hours of spare time because you won't want to put it down. I practically inhaled this book in two sittings, I just couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

The story begins with Gaby, a daytime TV presenter, going for a run on the common near her south London home. So far, so ordinary - until she glimpses the lifeless body of a woman in some brambles nearby, the victim of a violent murder. Shaken, she calls the police to report the crime, then goes to work as normal, trying to block out the discovery as she presents her usual show.
But then the police call her in for questioning, puzzled over the way their new discoveries keep linking the murdered woman back to Gaby. It's not long before the press pick up the scent and soon Gaby's house is besieged by reporters. Paranoid and on edge, Gaby feels as if she can't trust anyone...

I don't want to write any more about the plot because there are so many excellent twists and turns that to reveal anything else might spoil it. But if you enjoyed Gone Girl, or are a fan of psychological thrillers by Sophie Hannah or Nicci French, then you will probably love this intriguing and clever novel. It's taut, it's tense, it's absolutely gripping - and it'll definitely get under your skin.
