Skin Deep by Gary Braver





I found SKIN DEEP by Gary Braver a rapid 400+ page read over a week-long vacation, but a disturbing piece of fiction. Braver is able to hide the real killer from the reader until about 3/4 of the way through and handles the disguise in a clever way. He convolutes the ending to break the predictable "cops to the rescue just in the nick-of-time" climax but spoils it somewhat with wordy backstory in the last few pages.

I recommend this novel to thriller fans.
