From the Publisher:
In her eerie and hair-raising thriller Skin, Mo Hayder trails her two unforgettable protagonists as they race to staunch a rising tide of blood in a sweltering port town. 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. Skin is a penetrating dissection of family, friendships, and the evil that can tear them apart?or bind them together. Devious and disturbing, it introduces one of Hayder's most horrifying villains yet.
Annotation:
Det. Insp. Jack Caffery and Sgt. Flea Marley have barely caught their breaths after the hard-pounding events of Mo Hyder's previous book RITUAL. But when a football (soccer) player's wife disappears and a young man's body is found mutilated after an apparent suicide, they are right back in the thick of things. Plus, Marley's diving explorations of a series of flooded quarries turn up some frightening clues, and her brother appears to be disturbingly linked to the cases.
