The Man That Got Away by Lynne Truss
The Man That Got Away
In the second instalment of Lynne Truss’s joyfully quirky crime series, our trio of detectives must investigate the murder of a hapless romantic; an aristocratic con man on the prowl; and a dodgy Brighton nightspot…
It is summer in Brighton and the Brighton Belles are on hand to answer any holidaymaker’s queries, no matter how big or small. The quickest way to the station, how many pebbles are on the beach and what exactly has happened to that young man lying in the deckchair with blood dripping from him?
Constable Twitten has a hunch that the fiendish murder may be connected to a notorious Brighton nightspot and the family that run it, but Inspector Steine is – as ever – distracted by other issues, not least having his own waxwork model made and an unexpected arrival, while Sergeant Brunswick is just delighted to have spied an opportunity to finally be allowed to go undercover.
Our incomparable team of detectives are back for another outing in the new instalment of Lynne Truss’s joyfully quirky crime series.
A Shot in The Dark by Lynne Truss
A Shot in The Dark
The charming first novel in a new comic crime series, from one of Britain’s most-loved writers, the incomparable Lynne Truss
‘More Marx Brothers than Agatha Christie, this is crime fiction turned on its head – a giddy spell of sheer delight‘ Daily Mail
Brighton, 1957. Inspector Steine rather enjoys his life as a policeman by the sea. No criminals, no crime, no stress.
So it’s really rather annoying when an ambitious – not to mention irritating – new constable shows up to work and starts investigating a series of burglaries. And it’s even more annoying when, after Constable Twitten is despatched to the theatre for the night, he sits next to a vicious theatre critic who is promptly shot dead part way through the opening night of a new play.
It seems Brighton may be in need of a police force after all.
