FIRST, the saucy film of a nude woman bathing is stolen from a What the Butler Saw machine on Brighton's Palace Pier. NEXT, the pier's night-watchman is murdered - his body found in the coconut shy. COLIN CRAMPTON, ace reporter on the Evening Chronicle, senses a scoop when he's the only journalist to discover a link between the two crimes. HE UNCOVERS a 50-year feud between twin sisters - one a screen siren from the days of silent movies, the other the haughty wife of an aristocrat. BUT COLIN S investigation spirals out of control - as he RISKS HIS LIFE to land the biggest story of his career. STOP PRESS MURDER, a Swinging Sixties mystery, has more twists and turns than a country lane. It will keep you guessing - and laughing - right to the last page.
