Following A Shot in the Dark, The Man That Got Away is the second book in Lynne Truss' wonderfully quirky Constable Twitten mystery series.
This book finds Constable Twitten, Inspector Steine and Sergeant Brunswick investigating the murder of a hapless romantic; an aristocratic con man on the prowl; and a dodgy Brighton nightspot...
It's a glorious summer on the south coast and the Brighton Belles will answer ANY holidaymaker's query - from the number of pebbles on the beach to what exactly happened to the young man lying in the deckchair with blood dripping from him?
Could this murder be linked to a notorious nightspot and the family that runs it? Set in the 1950s and packed with witty dialogue and unexpected twists, we'd recommend this page-turner for fans of Ann Granger and Suzette A. Hill.
