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.

Peer & Press Reviews

The sum total is classic James.  The plotting is tight and polished and steadily paced with constant red herrings and misdirection to unsettle any reader who gets too comfortable in their assumptions.

Sunday Express

Few authors can dish out thrills and suspense as readily as James… non-stop action is the reader’s reward in this fast-paced potboiler of a read.

Library Journal

The crisp action, which shifts from Sussex to Spain’s Costa del Sol and New York, includes several well-concealed closing twists.
