Someone Else's Skin voted Favourite Read of 2014

Those lovely people over at Euro Crime have voted Someone Else's Skin their Favourite Read of 2014. Here's what their reviewer, Michelle Peckham said:
This is a terrific first book, and one of the best first books that I've read. It explores violence, particularly against women, and its consequences with a new take on this type of violence.

No Other Darkness - a first review

Proof copies went out before Christmas and one or two people have finished it already, which is impressive and a little nerve-wracking. Luckily, the only comments I've seen so far have been good ones. Like one from Northern Crime.
'Anyone who loved ‘Someone Else’s Skin’ will not be disappointed with the new Marnie Rome. Sarah Hilary writes the best crime reads. Emotionally intelligent and compelling.'

Someone Else's Skin one of the Observer's Top Thrillers of the Year

Thrilled to be on this list, which includes stellar names like Tana French, Sophie Hannah and Tom Rob Smith.

Alison Flood in today's Observer calls Someone Else's Skin a 'standout of the year' and says I'm vying with Lauren (Broken Monsters) Beukes for 'most unsettling scene of the year' which makes me more happy than is probably decent.
