Left You Dead: A Realistically Creepy Crime Thriller (Roy Grace Book 17) Kindle Edition
*The brand new Roy Grace novel from Peter James - Picture You Dead - is available to pre-order now*
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award-winning author Peter James, faces his most engrossing case yet in Left You Dead.
Niall and Eden Paternoster start their Sunday the same way they always do – with a long drive, a visit to a country house and a quick stop at the local supermarket on the way home.
But this Sunday ends differently – because while Niall waits and waits in the car park for Eden to pick up supplies, Eden never returns. She’s not waiting for him at home, and none of their family or friends have heard from her.
Gone without a trace, Niall is arrested on suspicion of her murder. When DS Roy Grace is called in to investigate, it doesn’t take long to realize that nothing in this case is quite as it seems . . .
Left You Dead is the seventeenth thrilling crime novel in the Roy Grace series. Enjoy more of the Brighton detective’s investigations with Dead Simple, Looking Good Dead and Not Dead Enough.
Now a major TV series starring John Simm.
'One of James’s most emotionally engaging books' – Mirror

He has won over forty awards for his work, including the WHSmith Best Crime Author of All Time Award, the Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger and a BAFTA nomination for The Merchant of Venice starring Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons for which he was an Executive Producer. Many of Peter’s novels have been adapted for film, TV and stage.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
"Not since Judith Rossner’s Looking for Mr. Goodbar has a novel so wrenchingly portrayed the perils of looking for love in all the wrong places. . . . The action is fast and furious, but, as in all novels in this series, it’s held together by the unflappable character of Superintendent Grace. James has won WHSmith’s Best Crime Author of All Time award and the British Crime Writers’ Association’s Diamond Dagger award. Not to be missed." —Booklist starred review of Dead at First Sight
"This is police procedural writing of the highest order." —The Providence Journal on Need You Dead "This skillful twister shows why James was awarded the 2016 CWA Diamond Dagger." —Publishers Weekly Online starred review of Need You Dead --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
One caveat. While extremely sad, and makes you feel very much for Grace, I was somewhat unsure about the Bruno story that doesn’t really connect with the story enough. Yes it shows Grace’s personal life and humanity, but was it necessary to have his son - spoiler - die?
Enjoyable read from start to finish. I thought you dealt with the transplant issue very sympathetically and caused a few tugs at the heart strings whilst reading.
Well done again.

Firstly, Roy is in more than a few paragraphs, and secondly it’s hard to put down.
Whilst not a shocking end when you’re used to Peter James plots and ways of writing, there’s twists and turns throughout that will keep you reading ‘just one more chapter’ until the end!
Loath to write anything negative about Peter James, however -Love the Roy Grace books but I felt this was 100 pages too long. A character introduced a couple of books ago and seemingly with quite a backstory and perhaps interesting future was killed off. Seems as if the author wasn't sure how to proceed with their development. We then had pages and pages of hospital detail, and interminable extracts of Grace crying. Not really relevant to the main theme. Secondly a situation introduced in the opening section just petered out at the end.
The main storyline, as ever was clever with an interesting plot twist and fast paced in true 'James' style, but disappointment with 'I Follow You', his last book, and now this weakly edited book left me disappointed. Sorry!
