Praise for the Roy Grace series:
'Peter James is one of the best crime writers in the business.' -- Karin Slaughter
'British author James dreams up a horrific intersection of extreme perversion and Internet technology in his frighteningly, expertly constructed second Det. Supt. Roy Grace novel... The rapid-fire suspense builds to a terrifying, graphic conclusion that leaves tantalizing room for future instalments in the series.' -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
'Roy Grace is the very best of the middle aged male British detectives - there's a whole bunch, there's just tons, but he is the best. 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
'James has created a flawed and compelling character in his Detective James Superintendent Roy Grace series, and the tense suspense in DEAD MAN'S GRIP will keep readers turning the pages…Fans will love this latest Roy Grace thriller, and newcomers will find 'Dead Man's Grip' the perfect place to start.' -- Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
'Exceptional, knock-your-socks-off.' -- Washington Post
