"The Wicked Girls" by Alex Marwood
Join us on Thursday, May 1 to discuss The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. Twenty five years after having been convicted of murder as 11-year-olds, Kirsty and Amber, who the law forbids to meet, are thrown together when Amber discovers a teenage girl's body in an amusement park hall of mirrors and Kirsty is sent to cover the story for her newspaper. When two more murders further entwine them, they begin to fear that they are being targeted, but because of who they are now, or who they were?
The Wicked Girls is short listed for the 2014 Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Paperback Original, winner to be announced May 1.
