Synopsis

Geezer Girls by Dreda Say Mitchell

A 2014 World Book Night selection.

Fifteen-year-old Jade Flynn and three other girls were the sole occupants of the fourth floor of St Nicholas Care Home for Children. They were forced to take part in 'special community projects' - drug dealing, money laundering, gun running. Required to work for a man they called The Geezer. Until a shocking event made them rebel. Steal something that wasn't theirs. So they ran. Disappeared. 10 YEARS LATER ...Jade Flynn is now living a respectable life as Jackie Jarvis and is getting married. She invites her three best friends to be her maids of honour. But someone else turns up as well - The Geezer. He'll kill them, unless they do one last job for him, then they can return to their normal lives. But can they trust him? This time if they disappear they won't be coming back ...

Reviews

'As good as it gets ... Mitchell is English fiction's brightest new voice'
Lee Child

'Great read written by a great girl'
MARTINA COLE

'KILLER TUNE is a sharply observed, incisive and moving story of radical politics, conflicting loyalties and unfinished business.'
Guardian

'Dreda Say Mitchell is an exciting new talent and her second novel, KILLER TUNE, shows her distinctive take on current urban noir... The narrative throbs with energy and has a refreshing directness'
Sunday Telegraph

'An interesting, original novel, worth reading, even if you don't get half the references and in real life would block your ears to the noise'
Literary Review

'Mitchell's plot is elaborate but tightly played, with a backbeat of racial abuse. Killer Tune lays the breezy muscial name-checking of Hornby's High Fidelity over a well-crafted murder mystery.'
Financial Times

'Great read written by a great girl'
MARTINA COLE
