First gripping mystery in the Brighton Trilogy - July 1934. A woman's torso is found in a trunk at Brighton railway station's left luggage office.

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. But it's only a matter of time before past and present collide . . .
