Publisher's Summary

"An absolute feast for noir and paranormal thriller fans alike. Highly recommended." (bestthrillers.com)

John "Slim" Hardy, heavy drinker and disgraced soldier turned bumbling private detective, is hired to investigate Ted Douglas, an investment banker who slips out of work every Friday to visit a desolate cove on the Lancashire coast. There, he walks to the shore, opens an old book, and begins to read aloud.

His wife thinks he's having an affair.

Slim thinks he's insane.

The truth is more incredible than either could imagine.

The Man by the Sea is the sensational debut novel by Jack Benton, a classic story of love, betrayal, murder, and intrigue.

Enjoyable

I’ve not read these Slim novels previously but I did enjoy this one. Light and easy to listen to. A sad man is Slim but I will find another.
Well worth an uncomplicated read.
