Weirdo - Cathi Unsworth

Based on the east coast of England this one appealed because it's relatively local to me.
A cold case is re-opened and an inspector assigned to research the case after advances in DNA forensics shows different possibilities for guilty persons.
It's a closed community where most people know eachother and a lot have never left the town. Still a secret has been kept for many years.
Mixing in school years and current time with visits to a secure unit this is a convoluted book that doesn't seem to hit the mark a lot of the time. It's a shame because the premise is good but it's not for me.

Publisher - Serpent's Tail
