Waterstones Says

Another evocative slice of period crime from the ever-versatile Elly Griffiths, Now You See Them combines classic police procedural storytelling with an atmospheric recreation of 1960s Brighton. Abounding with mods and rockers and rich in subtle commentary about the changing face of post-war society, this is a multi-layered crime thriller to savour.

Three girls have left. None have come back.

Brighton, 1963. Edgar Stephens has been promoted to Superintendent and is married to his former sergeant, Emma Holmes. Edgar's wartime partner in arms, magician Max Mephisto, is a movie star in Hollywood, while his daughter Ruby has her own TV show.

The funeral of an old friend highlights just how much the gang's lives have changed in the last nine years. Edgar is struggling with fresh responsibilities and the new swinging Brighton of rioting mods and rockers; Emma is chafing against the restrictions of life as a housewife.

Bob Willis, meanwhile, is tackling his biggest case since his promotion to DI: a schoolgirl missing from high-class boarding school Roedean. It looks like she's run away; but there are disturbing similarities to the disappearances of a young local nurse and a tearaway Modette, neither of whom have been seen or heard from since...

A new world is dawning in Brighton, but the city's dark side is as dangerous as ever.
