Join Lynne Truss, author of the bestselling Eats, Shoots & Leaves for a discussion on her first book in a witty new crime series.

After the notorious ‘Middle Street Massacre’ of 1951, when the majority of Brighton’s criminals wiped one another out in a vicious battle as the local police force enjoyed a brief stop en route for an ice cream, Inspector Steine rather enjoys life as a policeman. 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 being dispatched to the theatre for the night, he sits next to a vicious theatre critic who is promptly shot dead part way through opening night. It seems Brighton may be in need of a police
force after all…

Lynne Truss is a writer and broadcaster. She has written for Woman’s Journal, the Daily Mail and The Times. She has written extensively for radio, including scripts and comedy series for BBC Radio 4. She is the author of three novels.
