Simon and Suzie are two pleasure seekers defined by their flamboyant tattoos.

Peter Tressider is a politician on the fast track to the top. DS Aector McAvoy is a policeman with scars to his body and career.

Each is marked in their own way.

Original Skin is a crime novel that leaves a permanent impression. Half serial killer thriller, half gritty police procedural, it examines the imprints that our darkest sins leave upon us, and just how far we will go to keep them covered.
