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.

Someone Else's Skin on BOLO Books 2014 Top Reads

Especially pleased and proud to have made this list, which reads like a Who's Who of the Best Crime Books of 2014. It includes one of my favourite reads of the year, The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood.
“Someone Else’s Skin by Sarah Hilary is a debut novel, but you would never know it from the reading experience.”

Guardian's Best Crime and Thrillers of 2014

Very happy to have made this list, along with two of my fellow debut novelists, Eva Dolan and Ray Celestin. Laura Wilson in the Guardian described Someone Else's Skin as 'assured and perceptive'.

All her picks are excellent, by the way, and you should buy/read them all.
