A man impaled on the South Downs. Another skinned alive. A skeleton found beneath the West Pier, its feet encased in concrete. Brighton has been invaded. But this is no mere power struggle between rival mobsters; the motives for the killings stretch back through the decades, to an explosive forty-year-old secret Brighton's crime king John Hathaway would rather forget. But someone else remembers, and that someone has decided that revenge is a dish best served cold.

Got as far as about the 4th page and decided to stop reading. The very first scene was so gratuitously violent and nasty that I could not stomach the thought of reading the rest of the story. I have read plenty of crime fiction which can be violent, but nothing as nasty as this. I don't recommend this book unless you have a strong stomach.
