‘Skin Deep’ by Sung J. Woo is a perfectly pitched crime-mystery, with a beguiling new female detective.

I’d love you to have a look at the new novel by Sung J. Woo, ‘Skin Deep’. It’s the start of a brand-new series about Korean-American Siobhan O’Brien, who is thrust into the world of private investigation.

She was easing into middle age, ready for a chilled life without much fuss, but when her boss dies, things radically change.

Siobhan begins the search for her friend’s daughter, hunting around colleges of New York, in a madcap, surreal mystery that walks the line of comedy and drama perfectly.

As Siobhan delves deeper into the search for her friend’s daughter, she encounters politely dangerous men in white turtlenecks, vegan cooking that might kill her, possibly deadly yoga poses, and a woman named Cleopatra who’s got more issues than National Geographic.

This first in a new series introduces an endearing P.I. heroine in the tradition of classic female detectives like Sue Grafton’s ‘Kinsey Millhone’ and Sara Paretsky’s ‘V.I. Warshawski’.

‘The prize is a heroine who’s by turns wide-eyed, gravely amused, susceptible, and plenty cool enough for an encore’ – Booklist

‘Woo perceptively explores the theme of image and personal identity throughout. Readers will look forward to seeing more of the beguiling Siobhan.’ – Publisher’s Weekly
