Loving Geordie

(2002)
A novel by

 

"Shockingly atmospheric and evocative."
Jake Arnott


A shocking coming-of-age crime story, full of wonderful characters It is August 1960 and Glue Terrace, overlooking the River Tyne, is due to be demolished. All that remains is the abandoned rubbish of former lives. The residents themselves have already been shifted. In the midst of this desolation lives 15-year-old Leslie, whose childhood is rapidly being snatched from him. Determined to find a job, full of worries about unpaid bills and his drug-filled mother and vulnerable younger brother Geordie, his summer holidays suddenly become a journey of discovery and revelation. For in a derelict building, more a bombsite than a home, identical twins Maureen and Murial are found dead. The house had been their summer playground. But now they are lying side by side, like two sleeping angels on a tomb, a dark gash in each of their necks. Suspicion immediately falls on 'Geordie the dafty', who discovered the bodies. But Leslie is convinced of his brother's innocence, and is determined to prove it to everyone else...
