Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The third in the author’s Brighton-set trilogy of mysteries continues the parallel investigations of the (true) unsolved 1930s Brighton Trunk Murder and the (fictional) contemporary Mildean Massacre, this time showing us the trunk murderer’s own perspective on those events and, finally, the conclusion of the gripping modern-day story. It might be best to read the first two novels in the series (City of Dreadful Night, 2010, and The Last King of Brighton, 2011) first, since the trilogy is really one story told in three parts, but even read as a stand-alone, the book is gripping and satisfying. Worth noting, too, that readers familiar with the author’s previous series, about journalist-turned-sleuth Nick Madrid, should not expect the same sort of jocularity here: the laughs are few and far between. This is a serious, gritty novel designed to shock, captivate, and emotionally drain its readers, and it succeeds on all fronts. --David Pitt

Review

“Guttridge’s third Brighton thriller is so well-written that it would be well worth your time even if it were not such a darkly brilliant mystery.”

Having read, and greatly enjoyed, the first two books in the Brighton Mystery trilogy I wanted to finish the series. I was a bit hesitant after reading the two very negative reviews posted prior to mine.

Thankfully I bought The Thing Itself! I enjoyed it immensely!

I did not find it disjointed or hard to follow at all. The first two books had the same style. Also, the comment that this book has no relationship to the previous two left me scratching my head as it has everything to do with the first two.

If you enjoyed the first two books, please give this book a shot as it was a very rewarding conclusion to the series for me.

I was disappointed with this book. Ex-Chief Constable Bob Watts investigates what really happened in the unsolved Brighton Trunk Murder of 1934; Sarah Gilchrist probes the Milldean Massacre; and Jimmy Tingley tails the Balkan gangsters who wreaked havoc in Brighton. But it jumped all over and left you totally dissatisfied. Hard to follow. Not worth the read.

Preposterous characters behaving accordingly.

Even at the price of an ebook, it's a waste of money.

Save your time and money. Read something else.
