Book News – Skin Deep By Liz Nugent
Irish author, Liz Nugent is returning to our bookshelves with her latest book, chillingly called ‘Skin Deep’.
What the back cover says –
‘I could probably have been an actress.
It is not difficult to pretend to be somebody else.
Isn’t that what I’ve been doing for most of my life?’
Cordelia Russell has been living on the French Riviera for twenty-five years, passing herself off as an English socialite. But her luck, and the kindness of strangers, have run out.
The arrival of a visitor from her distant past shocks Cordelia. She reacts violently to the intrusion and flees her flat to spend a drunken night at a glittering party. As dawn breaks she stumbles home through the back streets. Even before she opens her door she can hear the flies buzzing. She did not expect the corpse inside to start decomposing quite so quickly.
I was fortunate to hear Liz read an extract from the book, during the Crime Noir Ireland Festival in Belfast and I got goosebumps just listening to it!
I loved Liz’s previous books, ‘Unravelling Oliver’ was dark and ‘Lying In Wait’ just chilled me to the bone, so who knows what I’ll think when I read ‘Skin Deep’!
You can pre-order Skin Deep from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 5th April 2018.
