Skin

When the decomposing body of a young woman is found, the wounds on her wrists suggest an open-and-shut case of suicide. But Jack Caffery is not so sure. Other apparent suicides are cropping up, and they all have a connection to Elf's Grotto, a nearly bottomless network of flooded quarries just outside the city. Caffery begins to suspect a shadowy and sinister predator, someone - or something - that can disappear into darkness and slip into houses unseen.

Publisher's Summary

When the decomposing body of a young woman is found, the wounds on her wrists suggest an open-and-shut case of suicide. But Jack Caffery is not so sure. Other apparent suicides are cropping up, and they all have a connection to Elf's Grotto, a nearly bottomless network of flooded quarries just outside the city.

Caffery begins to suspect a shadowy and sinister predator, someone - or something - that can disappear into darkness and slip into houses unseen. Working alongside Caffery is rough-and-tough police diver Flea Marley, but while pursuing her investigation, she stumbles upon something far too close to home that no one - not even Caffery - can help her face.

What the Critics Say

"Hayder captures the claustrophobia of Flea's dives in unsettling detail and continues to build on her two damaged heroes." (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

    "Suspension of disbelief is one thing..."

    ...improbable coincidences that serve to tie together loose ends of a story are something else again. I am fond of this series and especially like the moral ambiguities that Jack Caffery and now Flea Marley are faced with. They are believable characters. The series of contrivances that brought this story (which began in the last book, Ritual) to a close are not believable, however.

    Having said that, I could not stop listening during the last few hours of the book and actually spent the day baking so I would have an excuse to listen! I simply wanted to know how it would end - something that is all too predictable in many of the books I read.

    I woiuld also add that the narration is flawless and adds greatly to the enjoyment. Although I was not much impressed with this book, I'll surely carry on to the next.

    "Dark and Grizzly - LOVE Detective Caffery"

    If you do not like dark and deviant characters and aberrant, twisted, violent plots and a well written series of characters you will love and hate - don't even think about this series. The low ratings are almost always from people who've been scarred by the first few pages. Mo Hayder is a wonderful writer and though the narrators change in different books - I really don't like that - they are solidly good.
