Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Brighton, England - where they do like to murder beside the seaside....

Join ace crime reporter Colin Crampton and his feisty Australian girlfriend Shirley Goldsmith as they embark on a new adventure. It all starts in August 1963, while Colin is spending a lazy afternoon by the beach with Shirley. When a daring robbery takes place before their very eyes, Colin reckons he's on the trail of a big story. That will please Colin's grizzled news editor, chain-smoking Frank Figgis, half man, half nicotine. But it means Colin will be, yet again, stepping on the toes of Detective Inspector Ted Wilson, a cop who put the plod into plodder.

Nothing about the robbery is what it seems. And it's not long before Colin realizes he's fighting on two fronts as a bigger story threatens to eclipse his own scoop. When one of Colin's informants gets murdered, the trouble deepens. Colin's charm and ability to talk his way out of trouble are tested to the limit. Even that might not be enough when he comes face-to-face with a killer.

As he chases down his story and earns that front-page headline, Colin encounters a cast of colorful characters, including a motorcycle rocker with bad teeth, a dyslexic tattooist, and a seller of novelty toilet roll holders.

Murder in the Morning Edition is the first part of a trilogy which completes with Murder in the Afternoon Extra and Murder in the Night Final.

Enjoyable!

cosy-mystery, british, journalist, sly-humor, whispersync

I liked the tour of Brighton, the sneaky humor, the characters, and the fast pace of this minibook that can be read rather quickly. The inexpensive cost and easy availability of a well executed audio narrated by someone who easily carried off both the British and Aussie accents made a good book even better, thanks to Matt James!
To those who carped about the series thing, the price for all three is less than most books of that total length!

Simple fun entertainment!

Hang on to your life, as both the author and narrator of this book, and its trilogy take you on a fast past voyage half way around the world, laughing at it's true life unbelievability of coincidences. Its as fun as it's meant to be, as long as you don't take it seriously. Simply entertainment.
