This is the first of another series set in Manchester, my native city, and it has such a sense of place. It’s a long time since I heard one or two of the words or expressions used here and they nailed the story geographically for me. Heather Burnside is so good at getting into characters’ heads and leaving you understanding their predicament, but I confess, I didn’t expect the turn the story took. I found it very good indeed.
I received a review copy of this from the publisher.
Divided into three sections, consisting of one year each, the novel adeptly explores Adele’s formative years, beginning in childhood, recommencing in adolescence before culminating in young adulthood.
Set in 1970s and 80s Manchester, Born Bad is the first instalment in a proposed Manchester-based crime trilogy, penned by popular author Heather Burnside. It is an eminently readable and authentic work, boasting memorable characters and a suspenseful ending. Themes include domestic abuse and family loyalty. This reader eagerly awaits the sequel.
