One fateful summer morning in 1986, two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time and by the end of the day are charged with murder.

Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside town when her investigation leads her to interview funfair cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day when they were just children. But with new lives - and families - to protect, will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

From Publishers Weekly

13 May 2013 – A rundown British seaside amusement park, Funnland, provides the backdrop for the pseudonymous Marwood s memorable first novel. Thanks to U.K. rehab policies, impoverished Jade Walker and neglected Bel Oldacre accused, arrested, and sentenced as 11-year-olds for murdering a six-year-old girl in 1986 have become in 2011 Kirsty Lindsay, a newspaper stringer with an out-of-work husband, and Amber Gordon, a big-hearted Funnland cleaner, living with a handsome, enigmatic man given to black moods. Though the law forbids the two to meet, Amber s discovery of a teenage girl s body the third local murder that year in Innfinnity, the park s creepy hall of mirrors, and Kirsty s assignment to get the story behind the killings bring them together again. Marwood fills this disturbing thriller with sordid red herrings and brutal reflections of lower- and middle-class economic hardships, grinding in the sadly familiar message that societal injustice cruelly distorts women s lives.

Wicked Girls

Well worth the money and a read. Gripping and realistic. Definitely worth buying!

Gripping read

Sharp, sensitive characterisation and a really gripping plot. This book cleverly weaves the past and the present, snaring its characters in an impossible trap. A great read.

Had to keep reading

Picked this up on holiday and couldn't put it down. Enjoyed how well written it was as much as the plot! Disturbing, relevant and thought provoking.
