Longlisted for the CWA Sapere Historical Dagger 2020

A Times Crime Novel of the Year 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A knockabout farce of mayhem and murder ... A feast of black humour' - Barry Turner, The Daily Mail 

'A welcome second outing ... Lynne Truss is clearly having a great time - and so does the reader. There is a smile, giggle or guffaw on every page' - Mark Sanderson, The Times

“Wot Larks!!”

This book is a tour de force of comic caper, dramatic irony and good old fashioned farce. Having read the first in this series I was delighted to get my hands on this. The writing is good and there are laugh out loud... More
