SHOT IN THE DARK, A

Synopsis

Brighton, 1957. Inspector Steine enjoys his life as a policeman by the sea. No criminals, no crime, no stress. So it's rather annoying when an ambitious new constable shows up to work and starts investigating a series of burglaries. And when Constable Twitten is despatched to the theatre for the night, he sits next to a vicious theatre critic who is promptly shot dead part way through the opening night of a new play. It seems Brighton may be in need of a police force after all...
