Under Your Skin by Sabine Durrant

Under Your Skin

Sabine Durrant

A psychological thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the very end. A real holiday page turner which demands your time and attention, just like a gripping Friday TV drama. Crack open a bottle of wine, open a bag of nuts and enjoy!


In the middle of the night, I sit up in bed. Philip, who has slipped in beside me like an invisible man, like a ghost, doesn’t stir. I know what has been bothering me. That top, the rose-pink capped-sleeved T-shirt, with buttons down the front, a casual, summery sort of tank: I should have recognised it the moment I saw it. When I found her dead on the common, Ania Dudek was wearing my top.
