Fiction | Mystery
Laneyâ€”a skinny, awkward teenager alone in the worldâ€”thinks
sheâ€™s found a kindred spirit in thirty-five-year-old
Delilah. Then the police come to ask Laney questions and she
finds herself reconstructing a story of suspense, deceit,
and revenge; a story that will haunt her forever.
Seven hundred miles away, in Texas, Miss Baby has the
hardened heart of a woman who has been used by men in every
possible way, yet she is desperate for true love. When she
meets a stranger, a man who claims he canâ€™t remember his
real name or his past but who seems gentle and trusting,
Miss Baby thinks she may have finally found someone to love,
someone who will protect her from the abusive men who fill
But Miss Baby and Laney are connected by a terrible crime,
and, bit by bit, the complex web of deceptions and seemingly
small misjudgments theyâ€™ve each helped to create start to
unravel. Action, speculation, and contradiction play off one
another as the story is told through their first-person
voices, which keep you nervously guessing all the way to the
shocking, tragic climax. Break the Skin is expert
storyteller Lee Martin at his very best.
