It's been a year since Poppy lost her husband, Jack, who was brutally
murdered during a run through Manhattan's Riverside Park. She has
never truly gotten over his death. And stranger still is the fact that
Poppy disappeared after the funeral and later shows up in a tight red
dress before collapsing. Poppy doesn't have a clue to what happened
to her during those days, and the murder of Jack is still unsolved.
Poppy is having nightmares and blackouts, and she has problems
telling the difference between what is real and what's not. And now, she
feels that she's being followed. Could it be all the pills she's taking or is
someone actually following her?
UNDER MY SKIN is the first novel I
have read by Lisa Unger. I have previously read a short novella and
found it good, which left me wanting to try out one of her full-length
novels, and this one was right up my alley. I found the writing of UNDER MY SKIN to be top-notch.
This is just my kind of thriller. I'm not always a fan of unstable female
main characters, but Poppy is so well-developed, you can feel her grief
through the pages. One has to wonder, is she just imagining things or
she followed? Could the murderer be after Poppy? What happened
during the days she was missing? Who can she really trust? Lots of
questions and the only way to find out is to read the book. I will not
divulge more since I find that thrillers are best read without being
spoiled. All I will say is that this is a darn good book and if you are a
thriller fan then you definitely should read this book!
I found UNDER MY SKIN to be an
excellent thriller and I can't wait to read more books by Lisa Unger!
