Danny Miller: A walk on the Greene side The shadow of Graham Greene's 1938 novel Brighton Rock (memorably filmed in 1947 from a screenplay by Greene and Terence Rattigan) hangs darkly over Kiss Me Quick, playwright Danny Miller’s sinister and disturbing first novel. The main action takes place over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend in 1964 when Brighton was invaded by aggressively feuding Mods and Rockers. Vince Treadwell, a young detective born in the seaside town but based in Soho, is sent back to his home town to investigate a gruesome murder and resolve the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Jack Regent, a powerful and particularly nasty local gangster. When Vince falls for the Bobby LaVita, Jack’s showgirl mistress, his problems multiply and echoes resound which hark back to brutal events in 1939. Brighton resident Miller has had plays performed at the National Theatre Studio, the Bush Theatre and the Theatre Royal, Stratford East and has worked for the BBC, ITV and C4. He talks about the inspiration for and influences on this gripping novel about the seamy side of Brighton life.
