The Christmas of Inspector Steine

Written by Lynne Truss.

Brighton, Christmas 1957 was memorable in all sorts of ways. It was the year of the Queen's first Christmas broadcast for one thing, as well as Mrs Groynes' first Christmas married to Captain Hoagland of the Royal Engineers.

A happy time then? Well, apparently not!
