Huyendo en parte de su pasado como activista del IRA, el protagonista llega a una diminuta isla perdida en el océano donde la única edificación es una cabaña del meteorólogo y un faro. Su primera sorpresa consiste en comprobar que el único habitante de la isla no sale a recibirle, pero pronto esto se convierte en un detalle sin importancia cuando descubre que el faro es periódicamente atacado por seres procedentes del mar cuyos objetivos nadie conoce. No tarda en unir esfuerzos con el defensor del faro, Batis Caffó, pero con el paso de los días, y sometido a la extrema tensión de los ataques nocturnos, empieza a replantearse su actitud hacia los supuestos monstruos marinos. Mediante una extremecedora y emocionante novela en la que la aventura y la acción ocupan un lugar central, el autor plantea de un modo inteligente y agudo la percepción del ser humano hacia el individuo distinto, cuestiona la actitud que hay que adoptar frente al extraño y aboga implícitamente por el diálogo entre los diferentes. Objeto de numerosas y entusiastas reseñas en los medios de comunicación catalanes, "La piel fría" ha sido uno de los éxitos más sonados

Der Wetterbeobachter muss entdecken, dass sein Vorgänger spurlos verschwunden ist, und der grobschlächtige Caffó scheint dem Irrsinn nahe. Bereits in der ersten Nacht erfährt er den Grund dafür: Dem Meer entsteigen amphibische Kreaturen und attackieren die beiden Männer. Im Gegensatz zu dem engstirnigen Caffó versucht der Meteorologe, die Motive und Denkweisen der Kreaturen zu verstehen
