UNDER MY SKIN de Lisa Unger

Engrossing, fast paced and compelling

by Lisa Unger
Park Row (Mira), October 2018

Poppy Lang and her husband Jack were happily married, they owned a thriving business, had a cool apartment, good friends and a fun life.  All that shattered after Jack was brutally beaten to death during his early morning run in the park. Jack was a great guy, well liked, talented and charming, with no enemies and no secrets.  His murder makes no sense and the case was never solved. Poppy’s devastation with his death is complete.  The only way she can function is when she is sedated and oblivious in her grief, but even with heavy medication she suffers a nervous breakdown that leaves her with a four-day memory gap. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?
A year after Jack’s murder, Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her and she starts having nightmares and blackouts – things she remembers but doesn’t understand, wholes in her memory she can’t fill, nightmares that seem like memories… Poppy is unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining and when she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse in which the leads to Jack’s murder begin to surface.
