Psycho by the Sea Summary

Psycho by the Sea by Lynne Truss

'A giddy spell of sheer delight!' Praise for the Constable Twitten Series, Daily Mail In the latest installment of this funny, charming and quirky series - longlisted for the acclaimed CWA Historical Dagger - our trio of redoubtable detectives are faced with the arrival in town of an escaped criminal with an unlikely penchant for boiling the heads of policemen... It's September in Brighton and the city is playing host to weeks of endless rain and lashings of villainy. A trusted member of a local gang has disappeared part way through planning a huge heist; a violent criminal obsessed with boiling the heads of policemen has escaped Broadmoor and is rumoured to be headed towards the city, while at Gosling's department store an American researcher has been found dead in the music section. Inspector Steine has other things on his mind - since the triumphant conclusion to his last case, Steine has so many awards and invitations coming his way that he has had to take on a secretary - but Sergeant Brunswick and Constable 'Clever Clogs' Twitten are both on the case. If only they could work out just who is behind these dastardly acts... 'Outstanding . In her ability to blend crime and farce, Truss is in a class of her own' Publishers Weekly

Psycho by the Sea Reviews

Another delectable story of Brighton cock and bull ... Fortunately, in her fourth crime novel Lynne Truss has not changed her winning recipe of nuttiness, nostalgia and lots of cake. While between the covers of her books, the world seems a better place * The Times *
Glorious ... The fun is in Truss's keen ear for dialogue, original comic characters and affectionate(ish) recreation of a seaside resort in its slightly sleazy heyday -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series * Sunday Times Crime Club *
More Marx Brothers than Agatha Christie, this is crime fiction turned on its head - a giddy spell of sheer delight -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series * Daily Mail *
Lynne Truss has great affection for her characters, who fully inhabit 1950s Brighton ... Enormous fun -- Praise for the Constable Twitten Series, Simon Brett
