*THE BRAND NEW MURDER MYSTERY FOR FANS OF RICHARD OSMAN* 'Another delectable crime story... While between the covers of her books, the world seems a better place' The Times 'A giddy spell of sheer delight!' Praise for the Constable Twitten Series, Daily Mail 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 city 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 city, 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 - since the triumphant conclusion to his last case, Steine has so many awards and invitations coming his way that he has had to take on a secretary - 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... 'Glorious... The fun is in Truss's keen ear for dialogue, original comic characters and affectionate recreation of a seaside resort' Praise for the Constable Twitten Series, Sunday Times Crime Club 'Outstanding. In her ability to blend crime and farce, Truss is in a class of her own' Publishers Weekly DISCOVER THE PRIZE-WINNING CONSTABLE TWITTEN MYSTERY SERIES NOW

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
Truss's love of language and word play shine from the page ... An awful lot of fun * NB Magazine *
Glorious ... The fun is in Truss's keen ear for dialogue, original comic characters and affectionate(ish) recreation of a seaside resort in its slightly sleazy heyday -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series * Sunday Times Crime Club *
More Marx Brothers than Agatha Christie, this is crime fiction turned on its head - a giddy spell of sheer delight -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series * Daily Mail *
Lynne Truss has great affection for her characters, who fully inhabit 1950s Brighton ... Enormous fun -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series, Simon Brett
