"1957: In the beach town of Brighton, music is playing and guests are sunning themselves, when a young man is found dead, dripping blood, in a deck chair. Constable Twitten of the Brighton Police Force has a hunch that the fiendish murder may be connected to a notorious nightspot, but his captain and his colleagues are as ever-busy with other more important issues. Inspector Steine is being conned into paying for the honor of being featured at the Museum of Wax, and Sergeant Brunswick is trying (and failing) to get the attention of the distraught Brighton Belles who found the body. As the case twists and turns, Constable Twitten must find the murderer and convince his colleagues that there's an evil mastermind behind Brighton's climbing crime rate."--Publisher's description.

" Lynn Truss's joyfully quirky crime series" takes place in 1957's Brighton. Truss frequently take a second out of the story to talk to the reader, I find this enjoyable others may not. In this series constable Twitten and Mrs Groynes(police cleaning lady) are the only ones who keep their eyes on the mystery. Twitten to solve the crime, Mrs Groynes for nefarious reasons of her own.#indypladults

I may have given up too soon, but seemed superficial to me and I didn't find much humorous about it. If I have plenty of time in the future I may try again, but anymore if I can't get get engaged in the first chapter or so I have too much else I want to do and read.
