"The Zig Zag Girl" is the first in a new series by English writer Elly Griffith.
Set in immediate post war Brighton the background involves a part of show business which has now almost disappeared - the magic show. The main protagonists are a sensitive policeman and his magician friend who work together to solve the mystery of the murder of the latter's one time assistant. Worth reading because Griffith calls on family experiences to create her characters and therefore they seem accurately drawn and for the picture of Brighton as it was in the early fifties.
