Popular comedy thriller set in 1950s Brighton, a place of knickerbocker glories, end-of-the pier shows... and an enormous amount of unsolved crime.

Step forward Inspector Steine. Naive and innocent, he believes that he wiped out all the villains at a single stroke in the Middle Street Massacre when seventeen local hoodlums gunned each other to death. Fortunately, long-suffering Sergeant Brunswick is at hand to help Steine with his enquiries. Aided by keen Constable Twitten, they must find the criminal mastermind who is operating undetected in their midst.

Perhaps one day Steine will realise that the movements of Mrs Groynes, the station charlady, might be worth investigating.
