A day that begins with two girls sitting on a bench eating candy together ends with the murder of another child.
The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood starts with two 11-year-old girls meeting at a Mom and Pop convenience store in 1986. Through a series of run-ins with local youth, the girls get stuck babysitting a 4-year-old girl. By the time the day ends, the little girl is dead. The older two later are charged with her murder, for which they are responsible.
Fast forward 25 years. Journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of fatal attacks on women in a resort town. Her interviews lead her to the theme park that seems to be a focal point of the town.
Kirsty immediately recognizes Amber Gordon, the head of the carnival’s cleaning crew.
Amber recognizes Kirsty too.
The last time they saw each other was when they were sent to prison all of those years before. Now their lives are illegally intertwined again and it seems they are the only ones that can save each other.
Murderers trying to solve a murder mystery—that’s a unique storyline.
