When the decomposed body of a woman is found by railway tracks outside Bristol, all indications are that she's committed suicide. But DI Jack Caffery is not so sure. He is on the trail of someone predatory, someone who hides in the shadows. And for the first time in a very long time, he feels scared. Police Diver Flea Marley is working alongside Caffery. Having come to terms with the loss of her parents, she's beginning to wonder whether their relationship could go beyond the professional. And then she finds something that changes everything. Not only is it far too close to home - but it's so horrifying that she knows that nothing will ever be the same again...
Took this on holiday with me, was a great story, Couldn't wait to hear next installment. Although the reader is not great, did not detract from really good and captivating story line
I will give this book the same review as I gave the book that is directly before it "ritual", both books are fantastic. If you have not already read this book, I would recommend you read/listen to "The Treatment" first, because I made the mistake of reading it after "skin" and found myself going "ohhhhhh i understand now!". There's alot of background info on the main character in "the treatment". Then i suggest reading "ritual" which is the book directly before this one, this book starts literally the day after the last day of "ritual" I don't know why people are complaining about the readers voice - I think he is really good, his accents are fine with clear distinction between characters, and he is really soothing as well. lovely lovely voice :)
Compelling story with plenty of twists and turns almost ruined by the actor reading it . Inaccurate accents which tend toward the transatlantic and inappropriate stressing of particular words or syllables made it hard to listen to and distracted from the story. Would give it 3 or 4 stars for the story and 1 for the reading !
