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.
