Joss Grand once ruled the Brighton underworld with his sidekick Jacky Nye - until Jacky washed up by the West Pier in 1968. Though Grand's alibi seems cast-iron, Luke, a true crime writer, is sure there's more to the story, and he convinces the criminal-turned-philanthropist to be interviewed for a book about his life. Soon Luke realises that in stirring up secrets from the past, he may be in terrible danger.

"An author in total command of the tensions within dysfunctional families… Gripping all the way." ( The Times on The Burning Air)

Peter James Inspector Grace series as the descriptions of the Brighton area are quite detailed and the complex relationships in the book remind me of his writing.
The various characters came to life with the voices given to them.
In long chunks if not in one sitting.
A book that takes you to unexpected places. The interesting relationships, deep emotions and the ability to find good in those around you are all contributing factors to a well balanced and gripping book.
