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. And soon each will be branded by the same sinister foe.
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.

"Richly satisfying and told with remarkable flair, it confirms Mark as one of the darkest of the new faces in British crime writing, and not one to miss" (Daily Mail)
The perfect story to while away time. Absorbing, but not taxing. Hours flew without me noticing. This is the second of Mark's books I've had on audible. I continue to enjoy the characters- particularly with Longworth as the narrator.
I find myself fascinated by the characters in these books. McAvoy is a slightly confusing jumble of intense determination and incongruous shyness. His relationship with his boss is interesting and unusual with an undercurrent of something sexual.
The plot kept me guessing and a great twist at the end.
The narrator does a really good job of bringing the characters to life , I enjoyed listening to his variation of tones and accents.
I am about to download the third book !
