I’ve always wanted to read a Nicci French novel for the sole fact that I went to a school with a girl with that name. And yes, she even spelt it the same way! Recently I found out that French isn’t a female author, it’s a husband and wife team called Nicci Gerard and Sean French. When describing ‘Beneath the Skin’, Nicci wanted to ‘scare people where they feel safest – their own home’. Did they succeed with KM? Let’s find out … * The story * Zoe has recently arrived in London to teach, amidst a scorching summer. She accidentally becomes a heroine when she witnesses a mugging, and having recently bought a watermelon for her schoolkids, she ... Read the complete review

Brace yourselves, people, for here be another review from "The Commuter Files" - in other words I got so fed up of being forced to travel in the company of others that I decided to lose myself in books again. There might be a few of these coming up in the near future.... ****THE BOOK?*** The book is Beneath The Skin by Nicci French, a book I have had for so long that the sides of the pages have long been yellow and I can say for sure I have read it at least twice with gaps in between sufficiently long that I can be sure I will be surprised by some forgotten twist, scene or detail to make it worthwhile. It looks like, on Amazon basis, ... Read the complete review

Do you like Love Letters? Well after reading this book you may change your mind? Why? Read on. Another book about a serial killer are we not bored by this yet, detective stories seem to proliferate the bestseller lists and authors seem to cash in on this. Now do not get me wrong I like a good mystery, whodunit, what is going on etc, but you can have too much of a good thing. Well author, Nicci French, is a fairly well known name in the thriller section and has received quite good reviews. So I gave her a go. In this book the genre of thriller/mystery has been altered slightly, this is a tale of three women (Zoe, Jennifer and Nadia) stalked ... Read the complete review

I bought this book in a blind panic, trying to catch a train, but suddenly realising I’d forgotten to bring my book with me. I’ve always got a book on the go and start a new one as soon as I finish reading the previous book. So I went into a tiny WHSmiths on a train station, frantically scanned the book shelves and ended up buying Beneath The Skin by Nicci French. I had read one of her books before and although not my usual reading tastes, I had enjoyed the read so thought I’d give this one a go. The book is divided into three parts, each of which deal specifically with one woman’s story. The book is basically a serial killer/homicidal ... Read the complete review

This book is about three women, Zoe, Jennifer and Nadia. The first women we read about is Zoe. Zoe is a 23 year old pre-school teacher.
