Who? Chris Paling, contemporary author and resident Brightonian.
What? A cold crime thriller.
When? Around the millennium.
How? A loose, time-hopping meander through the central mystery: who killed Susan?
Why? Or rather, how to review a book where you might, quite feasibly, bump into the author and have to discuss at further length the critique you have provided? The simple answer is, for now, you do not. Until I work out the etiquette.
Newton’s Swing is available as a Vintage paperback. His latest, Reading Allowed (a collection of library-centred vignettes), has just been released as a Constable hardback.
