A Shot in the DarkBook - 2018
1957. Famed theater critic A.S. Crystal has come to the British seaside resort of Brighton with something other than the local production of A Shilling in the Meter on his mind. He intends to tell Constable Twitten the secret he knows about the still-unsolved Aldersgate Stick-Up case of 1945. Just before Crystal names the criminal mastermind involved, he's shot dead in his seat. As Constable Twitten and his colleague Sergeant Jim Brunswick set out to solve the decade-old mystery, they venture deep into the criminal underworld that lies beneath Brighton's holiday-happy veneer. When they discover a criminal conspiracy that dates back decades, will Brunswick and Twitten be able to foil the mastermind? -- adapted from jacket.
