Dead Man's Time Summary

Dead Man's Time by Peter James

Some will wait a lifetime to take their revenge. . .

A vicious robbery at a secluded Brighton mansion leaves its elderly occupant dying. And millions of pounds' worth of valuables have been taken. But, as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, heading the enquiry, rapidly learns, there is one priceless item of sentimental value that the old woman's powerful family cherish above all else. And they are fully prepared to take the law into their own hands, and will do anything, absolutely anything, to get it back.

Within days, Grace is racing against the clock, following a murderous trail that leads him from the shady antiques world of Brighton, across Europe, and all the way back to the New York waterfront gang struggles of 1922, chasing a killer driven by the force of one man's greed and another man's fury.

Dead Man's Time is the ninth novel in the multi-million copy bestselling Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.

Praise for the Roy Grace series: 'Peter James is one of the best crime writers in the business' Karin Slaughter 'James just gets better and better and deserves the success he has achieved with this first-class series' Independent on Sunday 'The tense plot is laced with fine humour ... never before has Brighton Pavilion appeared so sinister. James is on top form' The Times 'One of the most consistently readable crime writers, James seems to have shifted a gear with this latest meaty offering featuring his excellent Brighton detective Roy Grace' Daily Mail 'Peter James is on a roll with his Roy Grace novels ... an authentic, well-researched and compelling read' Daily Express 'Another of James' sophisticated, complicated and well-informed snap-shots of the Brighton police at work ... His research is obviously careful. It's well worth the effort, as the result is a superior thriller' Literary Review 'Peter James has established a series that is taking over from Ian Rankin in sales' Front Row, Radio 4 '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 'The latest crime thriller from Peter James is just as gripping and detailed as ever -- you'll be hooked!' OK! 'An incredibly gripping tale' WeLoveThisBook
