From the No 1 bestselling author of Unravelling Oliverand Lying in Wait '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 grotty 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 . . .

Pitch dark and thrillingly original -- Jane Casey * Twitter * Incredibly dark, twisting and utterly mesmerising - you will not be able to put this down -- Sinead Moriarty * Twitter * Utterly gripping, fast paced, and featuring my favourite sociopathic female character since Lady Macbeth -- Louise O'Neill * Twitter * Her darkest book yet - a compelling one-sitting read -- Sinead Crowley Dazzling ... chilling, mesmerising and, ultimately, devastating. Pure storytelling genius -- Mark Edwards I loved, loved, loved Skin Deep - the compassion of it, the beauty of the language, how glamour and horror intersect, how the tension twists tighter and tighter and is brilliantly done -- Marian Keyes Monumentally good. Liz Nugent is a beautiful writer and among the very best storytellers in the world -- Donal Ryan A triumph, from first page to last! -- Sarah Hilary Dark, brutal and brilliant -- Colette McBeth As one woman's singular story unspools with many an unexpected shock, Nugent skewers her targets with skill. Sly humour and dazzling originality deliver a gutsy feminist message. * The Times * A wonderful feat of imagination, totally gripping, with a fascinating character at its heart -- Sabine Durrant The finest psychological thriller writer currently at work - no one gets under the skin of monstrous characters like she does -- Tammy Cohen Bloody brilliant! -- Denise Mina What takes a woman from an island childhood in Ireland to murder and ruin in Nice? - another dark twisted story from No 1 bestseller Liz Nugent. * From the Publisher's Description *
