The Weekend Girls

A novel by

‘Extremely readable’ Sunday Times

Gillian was concerned when a middle-aged man with melancholy eyes followed her from a train.

Two days later, this lovely, neurotic girl disappeared ...

Everyone else thought Gillian would soon reappear to plague them, but Meg, her warm-hearted flatmate, was worried.

Seeing the mysterious stranger again, this time in the company of another attractive young girl, Meg decides to take matters into her own hands and investigate further.

But it’s not long before Meg finds herself at the centre of a deadly charade.

Will her search for the truth prove deadly, or will she too simply disappear along with the other Weekend Girls…?

Praise for John Burke

‘Fine example of the retrospective crime plot ... I suspect that John Burke tangles up – and satisfactorily unravels – his complicated plots with the aid of a highly sophisticated computer. Anyway, he beats me every time and I enjoy my defeats.’ – The Sun

‘A double surprise ending ... very enjoyable’ – Eastern Daily Press

John Burke (1922-2011) was born in Sussex and served in the Royal Air Force and Royal Marines during World War Two. He wrote several crime novels and thrillers under the names Jonathan Burke, J.F.
