THE LAST KING OF BRIGHTON by Peter Guttridge

MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 2013

"Guttridge's fourth dispatch from Brighton features many of the same characters as the first three (The Thing Itself, 2012, etc.) but is more cerebral and slower paced. In its own different way, however, it's just as literate and exciting."
