Synopsis

City of Dreadful Night by Peter Guttridge

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 17 May 2012.

July 1934. A woman's torso is found in a trunk at Brighton railway station's left luggage office. Her identity is never established, her killer never caught. But someone is keeping a diary. July 2009. Ambitious radio journalist Kate Simpson hopes to solve the notorious Brighton Trunk Murder, and she enlists the help of ex-Chief Constable Robert Watts, whose role in the recent botched armed-police operation in Milldean, Brighton''s notorious no-go area, cost him his job.

About the Author

Award-winning comic crime author Peter Guttridge turned from the Daft Side to the Dark Side for his noir Brighton series - starting with City of Dreadful Night, The Last King of Brighton and The Thing Itself. He's been the Observer's crime fiction critic for the past eleven years so has read far more crime fiction than is good for him.
