Another very good read, an interesting plot with a reasonably exciting ending with a final little twist in the very last chapter.
As usual Roy Grace leads the way with all the familiar characters. An entertaining and engaging novel and onto the next book in the series.

My first encounter with Peter James but certainly not my last. Surprising that BBC has not turned the Roy Grace character into a series.

This is #9 in the Roy Grace series. Author Peter James never fails to satisfy. He does not seem to be getting stale nor do his stories. I would suggest that you read the stories in order as DS Grace is not a stagnant character. He is growing and aging and changing. Join the fun and follow his escapades.

There are two outstanding crime writers in Britain today - one is Graham Hurley and the other is Peter James.
Their story lines are both current, and both have very believable characters that all have fascinating relationships of their own that add hugely to the success of each novel.
Together they are the equal of the great Michael Connolly - highly recommended reading.
