Fast-paced London thriller for fans of Bad Girls and the Lynda LaPlante readership.

Ten years ago, fifteen-year-old Jade Flynn and three other girls were forced to become the sole occupants of the fourth floor of St Nicholas Care Home for Children. Forced to take part in 'special community projects'. Forced to work for a man they nicknamed 'The Geezer'. Until a shocking event made them rebel. Steal something that didn't belong to them. They ran. They disappeared.

Now Jade is living a respectable life as Jackie Jarvis. She's getting married, and her three best friends are her bridesmaids. Until the Geezer turns up. He'll kill them, unless they do one last job for him - then they can return to their everyday lives. But can they trust him?

This time if they disappear they won't be coming back...

Praise for Geezer Girls: A gritty and addictive gangland thriller (Gangland Girls Book 1)

  • 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
