With the tough matriarch at its heart, this second instalment of Brett's Great Yarmouth-set series is brilliant seaside noir, the action playing out at cracking pace in the rough and seedy resort.
Things are hotting up . . . But the book offers more than just crime: the characterisation is strong and the relationships between the various family members and their associates and enemies skilfully depicted. A particular treat for anyone familiar with Yarmouth.
Brett's knuckleduster-hard story goes behind the tawdry neon of the day-tripper strip. A promising series . . . Fans of Martina Cole will look forward to this
Be prepared to immerse yourself in Great Yarmouth's murky underworld with this great thriller. FIVE STARS.
