Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The thirteenth Detective Superintendent Roy Grace novel from bestselling, CWA Diamond Dagger Award-winning crime writer, Peter James. Lorna Belling, desperate to escape the marriage from hell, falls for the charms of another man who promises her the world. But, as Lorna finds, life seldom follows the plans you've made. A chance photograph on a client's cell phone changes everything for her. When the body of a woman is found in a bath in Brighton, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to the scene. At first it looks like an open and shut case with a clear prime suspect. However, one by one alternate scenarios emerge, each of them tantalizingly plausible, and in a sudden turn of events, the case turns more sinister than Grace could ever have imagined. Roy Grace faces his most mysterious case yet in Need You Dead.
Review Quote*"Immensely satisfying. . . . The action hurtles to a shattering conclusion." -Publishers Weekly starred review of Love You Dead
Review Quote*"Peter James is one of the best crime writers in the business." -Karin Slaughter
Review Quote*"Peter James has penetrated the inner workings of police procedures, and the inner thoughts and attitudes of real detectives, as no English crime writer before him. His hero, Roy Grace, may not be the most lively cop, nor the most damaged by drink, weight or misery, but he's one of the most believable." -Times
Review Quote*"In my thirty four years of policing, never have I come across a writer who so accurately depicts "The Job." -Detective Investigator Pat Lanigan, Office of the District Attorney, NYPD
