Stop Press Murder by Peter Bartram Book Spotlight!
FIRST, the saucy film of a nude woman bathing is stolen from a What the Butler Saw machine on Brighton s Palace Pier. NEXT, the pier s night-watchman is murdered - his body found in the coconut shy.
COLIN CRAMPTON, ace reporter on the Evening Chronicle, senses a scoop when he s the only journalist to discover a link between the two crimes.
HE UNCOVERS a 50-year feud between twin sisters - one a screen siren from the days of silent movies, the other the haughty wife of an aristocrat.
BUT COLIN S investigation spirals out of control - as he RISKS HIS LIFE to land the biggest story of his career.
STOP PRESS MURDER, a Swinging Sixties mystery, has more twists and turns than a country lane. It will keep you guessing - and laughing - right to the last page."
Peter Bartram brings years of experience as a journalist to his Crampton of the Chronicle crime series – which features crime reporter Colin Crampton in 1960s Brighton, UK. Peter has done most things in journalism from “door-stepping” for quotes to writing serious editorials. He’s interviewed cabinet ministers and crooks – at least the crooks usually answer the questions, he says. He’s pursued stories in locations as diverse as 700 feet down a coal mine and a courtier’s chambers at Buckingham Palace. Peter wrote 21 non-fiction books, including five ghost-written, in areas such as biography, current affairs and how-to titles, before turning to crime – and penning Headline Murder, the first novel in the Crampton series. As an appetiser for Headline Murder, there is a selection of Crampton of the Chronicle short stories at www.colincrampton.com. Peter's versatile range of work includes a radio play and a magazine serial. He lives near Brighton, UK. He is a member of the Society of Authors and the Crime Writers’ Association. Peter lives near Brighton, UK, and is married with a daughter who is a teacher in Vienna and a son who is a journalist in London.
