Waterstones Says

The 15th Roy Grace novel finds the Brighton-based copper investigating a string of suspicious deaths linked to an online dating scam. Bursting with the kinds of twists and turns that have made Peter James one of Britain’s biggest crime writers, Dead at First Sight is a thrilling ride to the dark heart of the internet.

Signed Edition

Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award winning author Peter James, exposes the dark side of the internet in Dead at First Sight.

You don't know me, but I thought I knew you . . .

A man waits at a London airport for Ingrid Ostermann, the love of his life, to arrive. Across the Atlantic, a retired NYPD cop waits in a bar in Florida's Key West for his first date with the lady who is, without question, his soulmate. The two men are about to discover they've been scammed out of almost every penny they have in the world - and that neither women exist.

Meanwhile, a wealthy divorcee plunges, in suspicious circumstances, from an apartment block in Munich. In the same week, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to investigate the suicide of a woman in Brighton, that is clearly not what it seems. As his investigations continue, a handsome Brighton motivational speaker comes forward. He's discovered his identity is being used to scam eleven different women, online. The first he knew of it was a phone call from one of them, out of the blue, saying, `You don't know me, but I thought I knew you'.

That woman is now dead.

Roy Grace realizes he is looking at the tip of an iceberg. A global empire built on clever, cruel internet scams and the murder of anyone who threatens to expose them.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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 

'Peter James is one of the best crime writers in the business' - Karin Slaughter

'James just gets better and better and deserves the success he has achieved with this first-class series' - Independent on Sunday 

'Meticulous research gives his prose great authenticity... James manages to add enough surprises and drama that by the end you're rooting for the police and really don't know if they will finally get their men' - The Sunday Express
