A PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE IS GRACE'S DEADLIEST CASE . . .
Peter James is the international bestselling author of many award-winning novels. His Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series, set in Brighton, has been translated into thirty-seven languages with worldwide sales of over nineteen million copies, and has given him twelve consecutive Sunday Times number ones. In 2015 WHSmith customers publicly voted him the Greatest Crime Author of All Time and in 2016 he became the recipient of the coveted CWA Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award for sustained excellence.
Peter James has penetrated the inner workings of police procedures,
and the inner thoughts and attitudes of real detectives, as no
English crime writer before him. His hero, Roy Grace, may not be
the most lively cop, nor the most damaged by drink, weight or
misery, but he's one of the most believable * The Times *

No one can deny James's success as a crime novelist . . . The Grace stories almost always go to the top of the bestseller lists, not least because they are supremely well-told.
