Overview
Zoe. Jenny. Nadia. Three women of varying ages and backgrounds with little else in common but for one thing: Someone has sent them each a note informing them that they will be killed. A cruel joke? A hoax? The police don't seem to think so. Now, with no clear suspect and amid the growing threat of violence, the victims become the accused as authorities dig into their backgrounds for clues as to why they might have attracted the unrelenting attention of a killer. As Zoe, Jenny, and Nadia find themselves being victimized twiceover, once by the faceless stalker and again by the police, each must ultimately face the question of which is stronger: the instinct to survive, or the desire to destroy?

In Beneath the Skin, Nicci French has created the summer thriller against which all this year's entries must be compared. A summer heat wave in London seems unending. Tempers flare, skies remain an industrial yellowish-gray, people collapse in the street. Unsettling and threatening letters, apparently from the same person, have been sent to three women from very different stations in life: Zoe, an attractive young schoolteacher; Jennifer, a glamorous 40-ish housewife; and Nadia, a children's entertainer. Each letter offers details about the women that only the most intimate insider would know. And each letter gets progressively more graphic and violent. Narrated in the first person, first by Zoe, then by Jennifer, then by Nadia, Beneath the Skin constructs a framework of terror and dread that baffles police, the intended victims, and certainly the reader. A summer must-read!
