A Shot in the Dark (Hardback)

Lynne Truss


A Shot in the Dark by Lynne Truss is the first book in a quirky and charming new crime series set in 1950s Brighton.

When Inspector Steine stops for an ice cream, there's a vicious battle taking place in the seaside city and pretty much every criminal is wiped out. With no criminals, crime or stress, Inspector Steine is really starting to enjoy life as a policeman... However, Sergeant Brunswick is adamant not every crook has disappeared.

A new constable has also joined the force to investigate a series of burglaries. Then a vicious theatre critic is shot dead halfway through the opening night of a new play... Brighton might not be as safe as Steine hoped, after all!

Excellent -

This is an extremely well written crime mystery and a new detective to get to know. Very well plotted and it is easy to get to know the characters involved. A really good first book in a new series I will be following in future.
