Waterstones Says

More cosy crime of the highest quality as our trio of hapless Brighton detectives find themselves inundated by a variety of dastardly deeds, including the shocking murder of an American researcher at the local department store.

In the latest installment of this prize-winning crime mystery series, our trio of redoubtable detectives are faced with the arrival in town of an escaped convict...

It's September in Brighton and the town is playing host to weeks of endless rain and lashings of villainy. A trusted member of a local gang has disappeared part way through planning a huge heist; a violent criminal obsessed with hunting policemen has escaped Broadmoor and is rumoured to be headed towards the town, while at Gosling's department store an American researcher has been found dead in the music section.

Inspector Steine has other things on his mind as he typically bathes in unearned glory, but Sergeant Brunswick and Constable 'Clever Clogs' Twitten are both on the case. If only they could work out just who is behind these dastardly acts...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The witty and action-packed Psycho by the Sea carries readers along in surprising fits and starts, like a bumper-car ride. Elaborate schemes go awry, architectural follies self-destruct and the intelligence of several characters increases ever so slightly. This is a book in which there is candor (if not honor) among thieves.' - Wall Street Journal

'Another delectable story of Brighton cock and bull... fortunately, in her fourth crime novel Lynne Truss has not changed her winning recipe of nuttiness, nostalgia and lots of cake. While between the covers of her books, the world seems a better place' - The Times

'You can't help but laugh and commiserate with the police and villains alike and the writing is very, very good' - Belfast Telegraph

“More murderous frolics on the coast.”

3 ½ stars I think. Enjoy these books and as a Brightonian, love all the little references and jokes about the town. All the character names and local references just bring back a lot of good 'growing-up'... More
