DEAD MAN’S TIME by Peter James is No. 1 in the UK Paperback Fiction charts in its first week. The ninth instalment in the Roy Grace series has shot to number one position after just three days. We all congratulate Peter on his success!
Roy Grace investigates a savage burglary in Brighton, in which an old lady is murdered: although £10m of antiques have been taken, it is only a rare vintage watch that the family wants back. Grace has kicked over a hornet’s nest of new and ancient hatreds. Gavin Daly, the dead woman’s 95-year-old brother, has a score to settle and a promise to keep.
Praise for the Roy Grace series:

'What makes his books better than other people's books I think is that the ordinary people in these books react in the way they would react. They have absolute emotional credibility.' -- Jeff Park, 'Front Row' BBC Radio
