Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award winning author Peter James, faces his most mysterious case yet in Need You Dead.

Lorna Belling, desperate to escape the marriage from hell, falls for the charms of another man who promises her the earth. But, as Lorna finds, life seldom follows the plans you've made.  A chance photograph on a client's mobile phone changes everything for her.

When the body of a woman is found in a bath in Brighton, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to the scene. At first it looks an open and shut case with a clear prime suspect.

Then other scenarios begin to present themselves, each of them tantalizingly plausible, until, in a sudden turn of events, and to his utter disbelief, the case turns more sinister than Grace could ever have imagined.

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

"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." - Sunday Express

"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. James writes meticulously researched police procedurals, so informed that you can smell the canteen coffee . . . enthralling." - Daily Mail

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

"In my thirty four years of policing, never have I come across a writer who so accurately depicts 'The Job'." - Detective Investigator Pat Lanigan, Office of the District Attorney, NYPD

This is the thirteenth novel which features Roy Grace, and having read the previous twelve was interested to see how this would continue the ongoing story line which is interwoven in the other books. If you have not... More
