Beneath the Skin is a gripping psychological thriller by the Top Ten best-selling author, Nicci French.
Zoe, Jennifer and Nadia are three women with nothing in common. Except for the man who wants to kill them. He sends them terrifying letters, full of the intimate details of their lives - and promises that he will bring those lives to a violent, horrible end. But not before he has enjoyed himself.
Invisible and apparently unstoppable, he delights in watching the women suffer, thrilled by his power to leave them utterly helpless, alone in their terror and confusion. Except they're not all as helpless as he thinks . . .

Chilling and captivating read!
Very highly. The reader had an excellent skill for differentiating her voices between each of the characters.
Not giving too much away but the last of Jenny's chapters. Absolutely chilling, cleverly planned out and written. Highly effective psychological thriller.
I especially liked Nadia - I suppose she is the character the reader feels they spend the most time with and she both embodies and set herself apart from the other women before her.
Yes! I couldn't wait to listen to it again, it had me on the edge of my seat and I absolutely devoured it!
It is very hard not to become so involved with the characters that you regret the loss of them and the helplessness of the characters around them.
Quirky and a little disturbing.
Told from the victims' point of view. This makes it interesting but also quite disconcerting. I wasn't sure I was comfortable with that at some points in the story.
The last "victim" is the best for obvious reasons once you have read the book.
She made me feel engaged with the characters, even when you weren't meant to like them much.
Not the usual way these stories are told. Quite obvious at some points, puzzling at others but the ending tidies everything up without you saying "what?" but you are left feeling a bit ..... flat?
I enjoyed it but I wouldn't read it again.
