  • What takes a woman from an island childhood in Ireland to murder and ruin in a grotty flat in Nice? - another dark twisted story from No 1 bestseller Liz Nugent.

    From the Publisher's Description
  • Monumentally good. Liz Nugent is a beautiful writer and among the very best storytellers in the world

    Donal Ryan
  • A twisted thriller, reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith. A scarred woman brings chaos to those around her, but Nemesis is coming

    Ian Rankin, Guardian Books of the Year
  • The finest psychological thriller writer currently at work - no one gets under the skin of monstrous characters like she does

    Tammy Cohen
  • I loved, loved, loved Skin Deep - the compassion of it, the beauty of the language, how glamour and horror intersect, how the tension twists tighter and tighter and is brilliantly done

    Marian Keyes
  • A tour de force ... a genuinely memorable, at times terrifying central character ... will appeal to readers who enjoy an exciting, fast-paced journey of psychological extremes, which delivers a shocking final twist

    Crime Club, Killer Women Book of the Month
  • As one woman's singular story unspools with many an unexpected shock, Nugent skewers her targets with skill. Sly humour and dazzling originality deliver a gutsy feminist message.

    The Times
  • Dazzling ... chilling, mesmerising and, ultimately, devastating. Pure storytelling genius
