Olivia Marchant contrata a Hannah pagándole muy generosamente para que descubra quién está saboteando su centro de belleza y de paso le muestra unos anónimos dirigidos a su marido Maurice, cirujano plástico. Casi todas las pruebas apuntan a dos personas: Lola Marsh, empleada del centro de belleza, y Belinda Balliol, clienta de Maurice.

Cuando Maurice es asesinado la politía pone sus ojos en Olivia y Hannah debe encontrar la manera de demostrar su inocencia. Belinda Balliol no era sólo clienta de Maurice, y cuando el caso cierra Hannah descubre quién es el verdadero asesino.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
It was like a Cézanne painting: all those fabulous fleshy women, insolent, languid, apparently complicit in the painter's gaze.

~ Prologue
It had come through the lastest comfort and security addition to office technology: the portable phone.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743269225, Paperback)

A decade before her dazzling breakthrough novel, The Birth of Venus, Silver Dagger Award-winning author Sarah Dunant won critical acclaim for her Hannah Wolfe crime novels.

In Under My Skin, private investigator Hannah Wolfe's cushy new assignment takes her to the sumptuous Castle Dean health spa. While being plucked, crimped, steamed, and oiled, Hannah is ideally placed to probe some reported cases of sabotage -- fish in the Jacuzzi and steel nails in the massage heads. But spa owner Olivia Marchant has other problems besides sabotage. Someone is threatening her husband, Maurice, one of London's leading cosmetic surgeons and the man responsible for reconstructing many of the world's rich and famous. In a culture where no one wants to grow old and everyone seems to believe in the power of the knife, Hannah feels like an alien visitor. People will do anything in the name of beauty -- perhaps even commit murder.
