5.0 out of 5 stars Hilary's extraordinary debut sizzles...it never lets go, 13 April 2014
This review is from: Someone Else's Skin (DI Marnie Rome 1) (Kindle Edition)
DI Marnie Rome and Detective Noah Jake are on a mission: Get Ayana Mirza to press charges against her violent brother and they can put a dangerous criminal away for a long time. But something gets in their way. While entering the building of the refuge where Ayana is staying, they chance upon another crime, commited as they arrive.
What follows is a psychological journey of many layers; from the investigating detectives to the witnesses of the peripheral crime, everyone, it seems, is flawed: We see what we want to see...
Using her extraordinary investigative skills and acute perception, Marnie Rome clicks the pieces of an enigmatic jigsaw together piece by piece.
The damaged detective takes us through her traumatic past to her scarred present. Her guarded feelings for the refuge manager, Ed Belloc are realised perfectly through the pages as is her relationship with her partner, Noah Jake.

Sarah is an award winning short story writer and her lean, poetic use of the written word is used to great effect as the story unfolds satisfyingly.
Sarah Hilary's extraordinary debut sizzles and written in short, punchy chapters, it never lets go.
The first of a successful series, I am sure.
