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.
