The Thing Itself

(The third book in the Brighton Mystery series)
A novel by

When bad things happen, the only true account is the thing itself.

The sweeping third part of the Brighton trilogy moves from the horrors of the First World War to heroism in the Second; from the rise of British fascism in the back streets of Brighton and London in the 1930s to the modern-day machinations of the man who engineered the killing of The Last King of Brighton.

Former chief constable Bob Watts, Detective Sergeant Sarah Gilchrist and local radio journalist Kate Simpson are finally getting answers to the questions they've been asking since the Milldean Massacre and the discovery of long forgotten police files about the Trunk Murder.

But those answers aren't coming easy.

Ex-SAS hard man Jimmy Tingley doesn't have it easy either as he tracks through France and Italy the Balkan gangsters who brought barbarism to Brighton.

Nothing is straightforward in Brighton, the City of Dreadful Night, so the narrative has many twists and turns, including a final shift that turns everything on its head and demonstrates, once and for all, that the only true account is The Thing Itself.
