Superbly disturbing – Observer
A stunning debut – Mark Billingham
Called to a women’s refuge to take a routine witness statement, D.I. Marnie Rome instead walks in on an attempted murder.
Trying to uncover the truth from layers of secrets, Marnie finds herself confronting her own demons. Because she, of all people, knows it can be those closest to us we should fear the most.
When we first featured Sarah’s debut Someone Else’s Skin we knew we had found something special. We have waited eagerly for each new book. They are filled with clever penetrative writing, huge tension and some pretty fantastic characters – LoveReadingUK

A thinking woman’s whodunit – Irish Examiner
It’s the best crime debut I’ve ever read and deserves to be MASSIVE – Erin Kelly
