BOOK REVIEW

CITY OF DREADFUL NIGHT by Peter Guttridge
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Dec. 16, 2010

"Be prepared for a long night. Guttridge (Cast Adrift, 2005, etc.) combines period mystery, police procedure and noir in a fascinating tale whose only blemish is that you'll have to wait for the next in the series for its resolution.

"

THE LAST KING OF BRIGHTON by Peter Guttridge
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 1, 2011

"Best appreciated by those who have read the first in this historical series (City of Dreadful Night, 2010, etc.). Intertwined crimes dating back to the 1930s and years of police corruption are explored in this darkly fascinating noir procedural, which once again leaves much to be revealed next time."
The reason for a brutal present-day crime near Brighton, England, lies in the past. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

The Brighton police discover a connection between a scandal at the Royal Pavilion and looting at Angkor Wat. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE DEVIL'S MOON 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."
Brighton, England, is home to a number of offbeat religions, including a group of devil worshipers. Read full book review >
