MURDER IS THE BEST REVENGE...
Brighton antiques dealer Freddie Hollingbourne-Smith is murdered - and crime reporter Colin Crampton is first on the scene. Colin discovers plenty had reason to kill Freddie… like thwarted beauty queen Julie Appleyard, his jilted mistress… snooty toff Sir Tunnicliffe Hogg, his persecuted neighbour… devious hard-man Harry Spittlefield, his cheated partner… not to mention fiery and passionate Isabella, his betrayed ex-wife. Colin must puzzle out the mystery left by a small pile of printers' type - all in capital letters - before he can finger the killer. The climax explodes on the famous train, the Brighton Belle. With Colin's feisty Australian girlfriend Shirley at his side, the laughs are never far from the action as the pair hunt down the killer.
