Mark Chadwick is cycling home from work, eager to get back to his pregnant wife, Katy, and two children, when he sees the police calling at his house. He knows exactly why they are there, and he knows that the world he has carefully constructed over 20 deliberately uneventful years is about to fall apart. He could lose everything.... A story of a toxic love gone wrong, with a setting that moves between present-day London and 1990s Cambridge, Stronger Than Skin is utterly compelling, combining a gripping narrative with a keen eye for the absurdities of the way we live now.

He knows-because he reads about it in magazines-that people die every day in ways that are more random and tragic and stupid than hers, but for nineteen-year-old Billy and his little brother, Oscar, their mother's death in a bungled street robbery is the most random and tragic and stupid thing that could possibly have happened to them.
