'Dazzling ... chilling, mesmerising and, ultimately, devastating. Pure storytelling genius' Mark Edwards
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.
Absorbing, beautifully written
A twisted thriller, reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith. A scarred woman brings chaos to those around her, but Nemesis is coming
Monumentally good. Liz Nugent is a beautiful writer and among the very best storytellers in the world
The finest psychological thriller writer currently at work - no one gets under the skin of monstrous characters like she does
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
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
Dazzling ... chilling, mesmerising and, ultimately, devastating. Pure storytelling genius
