Description du produit
Revue de presse
Full of fun and expertly plotted, this is in many ways a cosy read but there is real depth to the way the characters cope not only with changing times but changes in themselves as they mature (Sunday Express)
Elly Griffiths, who is better known for her series about the forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway, relishes depicting a benighted age in which WPCs aren't allowed to drive or even carry radios... The tension - and frustration - builds to an exciting climax (The Times)
Elly Griffiths' series set in post-war Brighton are entertaining diversions full of period detail, smart plotting and likeable characters (Mail on Sunday Thrillers of the Month)
Brighton remains as alluringly seedy as ever (Irish Independent)
In trademark style, Griffiths' plotting is intriguing, multi-layered and full of rich detail, each character is honed to perfection, the social backdrop is immaculately researched, and the frustrations of young women constrained by outdated notions of a man's world are perfectly portrayed (Lancaster Guardian) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition hardcover.

The atmosphere of 1963 is beautifully evoked. I was a child at the time, and remember hearing of the battles between Mods and Rockers. I also remember the lingering sexism, and how frustrating life could be for women with personality and ability.
The female characters are, as ever, very strong. The situation in which Emma finds herself is, alas, typical of the time; but we can look forward to her developing in new directions. The new character, PC Meg, has wonderful potential; the reporter, Sam, is delightful; and Ruby is as formidable as ever.
The plot is good — we are kept guessing right to the end — but essentially it is a vehicle for Elly Griffiths’ brilliant story-telling ability.
Evocatively recreated are times as they were - this very much a man's world, women having to fight for the recognition due. Too often their role in the work place is limited to desk work and providing refreshments, not to mention having to endure sexist comments from colleagues. This is a period of changes - at their best the country hopefully on the verge of more enlightened attitudes towards race, gender and sexuality. Meanwhile, there is a new term for those no longer young but not quite adult - teenagers. They are increasingly making their presence felt, disturbingly so in the beach fighting between mods and rockers.
Representation of the period is arguably the novel's greatest strength. Readers may be divided about the success of the murder mystery itself, the motives of the perpetrator and the circumstances of the culprit's capture.
A pleasant enough read but perhaps lacking the sense of involvement found in more gripping examples of the genre.
I look forward to more about the solving of crime in 60s Brighton.
