Bad Penny Blues by Cathi Unsworth
Most crime fans will have heard of Bad Penny Blues by Cathi Unsworth and quite a few of you will have read it.
I brought it back from Blighty with me after my summer school stint and read it last week, while out in the Polish boonies.
It’s already been highly praised by the likes of Ray Banks and David Peace and guess what? Yes, it lives up to the hype.
In fact it’s better than I thought it would be.
Brilliantly written, of course, but also very warm and very, very moving.
A FIVE STAR novel, no doubt about it.
