Brighton as you have never seen it (or him) before…The male polar by nature is a solitary creature, but to solve this case Polar needs an ally. Who in Brighton can be trusted? Who will work with Polar North when the detective himself isn’t trusted by his colleagues?Accidental death was the initial conclusion when Prentice Fullerton’s body was found on Brighton beach – a drug overdose being the pathologist’s verdict.

So DI North travels south to Brighton, and to the backdrop of its annual arts festival, he finds some unlikely allies in Brighton’s gay community.
