Reviews

The Observer

Alison Flood

Under Your Skin rapidly unravels into a maelstrom of tension and paranoia, as Durrant draws a disturbing picture of how easy it is for even the most perfect life to implode. All too quickly, there is nowhere for Gaby to turn, and she waits alone in the dark in her Wandsworth house. It's hard to know whether to be enraged or delighted by the unexpected denouement with which Durrant wraps up her story, but if the mark of a good thriller is the compulsion to reread it immediately on finishing, to see if the clues can be spotted second time round, then Under Your Skin has it, in spades.

The Guardian

(Unknown)

While Under Your Skin is clever and addictive, and Durrant clearly intends it to have comic aspects, its jaunty tone and zinger-laden dialogue can be tension-sapping.

The Daily Express

Harry Forshaw

The treatment of the psychology of the characters is straightforward not nuanced but that ensures the inexorable grip never slackens.
