Praise for SOMEONE ELSE'S SKIN:
'A stunning debut' Mark Billingham
'A slick, stylish debut. And one that certainly got under my skin' Sharon Bolton
'A truly engrossing read from an exceptional new talent. Hilary writes with a beguiling immediacy that pulls you straight into her world on the first page and leaves you bereft when you finish. Intelligent, emotional and totally unexpected in terms of where it goes. I truly loved this book' Alex Marwood
I think it must be one of the debut novels of next year, if not THE debut novel... (It will be if there is any justice in the world!)
Intelligently and fluently written with a clever plot and an energetic pace, dealing with harrowing topics and shot through with humanity, I think Sarah's onto a winning series and I really look forward to reading the next instalment
It's written with the verve and assurance of a future star and deserves to be a big hit
It has such pace and force. It's very disturbing and builds up to a terrific climax
I finished it today and it's completely brilliant, complex, thrilling, brutal, tender, scary and intriguing. What a great book. The pacing is superb, the plot is compelling, the characters are so well drawn. The ending is ingenious
