Weirdo is an atmospheric thriller about a teenage girl convicted of murder in a 1980s seaside town and the private investigator who reopens the case to discover that she may not have acted alone . . . Corinne Woodrow was 15 when she was convicted of murdering one of her classmates on a summer’s evening in 1984, a year when the teenagers of Ernemouth ran wild, dressing in black and staying out all night, listening to music that terrified their parents. Twenty years later, new forensic evidence suggests that Corinne didn’t act alone. Private investigator Sean Ward whose promising career as a detective with the Metropolitan Police was cut short by a teenage gangster with a gun reopens the case. He discovers a town full of secrets and a community that has always looked after its own.

Review:

"A worthy showcase for the author's undeniable skill." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review of Weirdo

Praise for Bad Penny Blues

"Bad Penny Blues is so fully a thing in itself, slowly developing its own rules, playing them, teaching them to the reader, breaking them, then enforcing them even more strongly, until, with the book over, the world does not look quite as settled as it did before the book started." Greil Marcus

"Bad Penny Blues is the English Black Dahlia and will establish Cathi Unsworth as the First Lady of Noir Fiction." - David Peace

Praise for The Singer

"A cracking page-turner that feels authentic, authoritative and evocative. And it’s beautifully written. This is a bloody good book." - Val McDermid

"An astonishingly evocative and emotional telling of the tale, a heartbreaking elegy for the blank generation." - Jake Arnott
