With their marriage cracking under the strain and Johnny’s sanity under threat, the pair is warned to stay out of the case by Lillian’s brother, homicide detective Daniel Turner. Just what is Daniel’s connection to the dead girl? Does he know more than he’s letting on? Can Lillian trust her own brother?

“Second Skin has a powerful literary dimension.” “Vivid portraits of Jacksonville neighborhoods, individual places of residence and work, and landscapes root the novel firmly in the reader’s imagination. A collection of well-drawn minor characters, notably the 60-something prostitute named Felicity and the Gullah leader named Papa Crowe, enrich the narrative tremendously. Mr. Wiley’s portrait of Crowe is a small masterpiece, its subject waiting endlessly for the moment to right the disgrace and betrayal of his community. Do I like, admire and even cherish this book? Indeed I do. It is a powerful follow-up to last year’s Blue Avenue”
