When Luke, a true crime writer in search of a story, flees to Brighton after an explosive break-up, the perfect subject lands in his lap: reformed gangster Joss Grand. Now in his eighties, Grand once ruled the Brighton underworld with his sadistic sidekick Jacky Nye - until Jacky washed up by the West Pier in 1968, strangled and thrown into the sea. Though Grand's alibi seems cast-iron, Luke is sure there's more to the story than meets the eye, and he convinces the criminal-turned-philanthropist to be interviewed for a book about his life. As Luke is drawn deeper into the mystery of Jacky Nye's murder, he soon realises that in stirring up secrets from the past, he may have placed himself in terrible danger.
