Murder, he typed…
… crime reporter Colin Crampton faces dangers they never mentioned at journalism school
A new clue to an unsolved murder
A dangerous killer on the loose
A reporter desperate for a scoop…
It’s August 1962 and Brighton Evening Chronicle crime reporter Colin Crampton needs a front-page story. Then Colin gets a tip-off that Arnold Trumper, who owns the seafront’s miniature golf course, has disappeared. And that Trumper’s vanishing act is linked to an unsolved murder.
Powerful people don’t want Colin to find the truth. He uses every newspaper scam he knows to get his scoop. Trouble is Colin’s girlfriend, feisty Australian Shirley Goldsmith, carries the can when a scam misfires. Can Colin win a race against time to land his story – and keep Shirley on-side?
