Like the style of writing immediately Love his delivery of humor.Had to check about cappuccino in Brighton to see when they started to have this kind of drink since I didn t know about it until not too long ago.Didn t know that even then even a reporter has to produce Just like a salesman having to make their number Plus they have to compete with reporters from other papers I like the trip to the morgue Not too long ago we still had to clip the news pieces Like the way the zits express their fee [...]

I would like to thank Peter Bartram for my free copy of his novella The book was short and sweet, an easy read It was fast paced, but perhaps too fast as I felt hyperactive and it did not give me time to warm up to the characters As a French Canadian, I also had some difficulty with some of the British terms.

I love the way Peter Bartram writes His humour in difficult situations with just the right amount of description of what s occurring has a perfect balance Headline Murder is the second Crampton of the Chronicle mystery I ve read and now I m eager to read the next instalment.I ve never been to Brighton but I feel I know the streets and the lanes like my home town and have a vivid picture of Prinny s Pleasure and it s delectable food offerings.Working one step ahead of the police on this investiga [...]

I thoroughly enjoyed this newspaper caper set in the early 1960 s.In search of the next big story for the Evening Chronicle crime reporter, Colin Crampton, is running out of ideas fast, as anything worthy of front page news has all but dried up in Brighton Short of committing offences himself he s not going to conjure up the sort of copy that is demanded by the news editor, Frank Figgis.With things looking grim he receives a nod toward a crazy golf course No, not to pass the time A local busines [...]

The publication of BRIGHTON ROCK in 1938 gave Brighton a sleazy reputation it s never quite managed to shake off Who d have thought that a sleepy South Coast resort could be home to a bunch of crooks Well, Graham Greene did for one Fast forward a quarter of a century and Peter Bartram does for another to excellent effect in this pacey and well written crime caper.Its hero is journo turned gumshoe Colin Crampton who spends time at the wheel of his MGB chasing leads than he does at his desk writi [...]

I don t normally read a lot of crime mysteries, but I really enjoyed this book I was pleasantly surprised at the light hearted approach to the story of Colin Crampton and the amusing characters set in Brighton Having visited the city before, it was entertaining to recognize the various spots in Brighton mentioned throughout the book I read the book in just two nights as I was eager to know how the case would be solved, and was entertained along the way by the witty dialogue I m looking forward t [...]

If you like Raymond Chandler you ll like Peter Bartram s novel about slightly crusty and witty investigative journalist, Colin Crampton, who stumbles upon a major crime in his town of Brighton, England Set in the 1960s, Crampton navigates old fashioned typewriters and pay phones while digging deeper into a story that at first appears pretty harmless The nicely woven plot intensifies and offers several surprises as Crampton puts himself in harm s way I especially loved some of the dry humor that [...]

A cracking read that made me want , I hope Peter s next book is double the length The story is believable and the scenery real Sokeham Street Not only that, the baddie is obviously based on a certain local character of the 60s and 70s who is recognisable for anyone who was around Brighton and Hove in those days.
