"Victorian Brighton in 1882 is the setting of this novel of crime and tangled emotions. Albert Moscrop, a visitor whose holiday is dedicated to peering through a telescope at the seaside scene, marches down the Queen's Road to the beach and draws us through a sequence of disarmingly trivial observations into a compelling drama, played in the fashionable haunts of the 19th century resort: beach, piers, promenade, swimming bath, aquarium and Devil's Dyke. A keen student of human nature, Moscrop concentrates his interest on one particular family of holiday-makers-the Protheros, and especially the beautiful Zena Prothero, whose husband appears to take her excessively for granted. Gradually Moscrop moves into the circle of the Prothero family, only to become involved in a sensational murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
