‘The Wicked Girls’ by Alex Marwood.

ISBN: 978-0-75154798-6) PB)

In the year of 1986, two twelve-year-old schoolgirls meet and by the end of the same day they have committed murder. Fast forward to twenty years in time and they are living very different lives under new identities. Kirsty Lennox is now a journalist who is reporting on a series of murders of young female tourists in a seaside town. As her investigation goes on, she comes face to face with Amber Gordon for the first time since that fateful day in nineteen eighty-six. Can their shared secret now stay hidden? and what will happen to each of them now?

This is a tightly constructed and page-turning story. The characters are rich, and real. For a first novel it was extremely well- written, no excess, and no veering away from the all-consuming plot. It has its surprises, and many of them. It is a dark, and dangerous, psychological, thriller, guaranteed to keep you thinking after you closed the very last page.
