YOU ARE DEAD out in hardback today!

Peter James’ 11th Roy Grace novel, YOU ARE DEAD, is published in hardback today in the UK by Macmillan.

The last words Nick hears from his fiancée Logan, are in a terrified mobile phone call from her. She has driven into the underground car park beneath their apartment and seen a man acting strangely.  She screams, the phone goes dead.  The police are on the scene within minutes, but Logan has vanished, leaving behind her neatly parked car and telephone.  This is the beginning of what becomes a tortuous case for Roy Grace and his team, leading to the discovery of bodies of young women, and a terrifying chase to find the murderer, and Logan, dead or alive.  Surprising twists and chilling discoveries deliver a breath-taking read.

Peter was recently longlisted for the Dagger in the Library Award 2015. The shortlist will be announced on 8th June.

Earlier this year, Peter James was voted the ‘Best Crime Writer of All Time’ in a poll run by WH Smiths. Peter James won the poll ‘by a landslide’, beating crime heavyweights including Ian Rankin, James Patterson and even the classic Agatha Christie.

The designer of Peter’s spectacular new covers, Neil Lang, recently told us all about the redesign – see his story here on the Blake Friedmann Blog.

The Roy Grace novels are translated into more than three dozen languages.
