Reviews

"A worthy showcase for the author's undeniable skill." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review of Weirdo

Praise for Bad Penny Blues

"Bad Penny Blues is so fully a thing in itself, slowly developing its own rules, playing them, teaching them to the reader, breaking them, then enforcing them even more strongly, until, with the book over, the world does not look quite as settled as it did before the book started." - Greil Marcus

"Bad Penny Blues is the English Black Dahlia and will establish Cathi Unsworth as the First Lady of Noir Fiction." - David Peace

Praise for The Singer

"A cracking page-turner that feels authentic, authoritative and evocative. And it's beautifully written. This is a bloody good book." - Val McDermid

"An astonishingly evocative and emotional telling of the tale, a heartbreaking elegy for the blank generation." - Jake Arnott
