NEED YOU DEAD by Peter James

Lorna Belling, desperate to escape the marriage from hell, falls for the charms of another man who promises her the earth. But, as Lorna finds, life seldom follows the plans you’ve made. A chance photograph on a client’s mobile 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 an open and shut case with a clear prime suspect. Then other scenarios begin to present themselves, each of them tantalizingly plausible, until, in a sudden turn of events, and to his utter disbelief, the case turns more sinister than Grace could ever have imagined.
 

“Superior….This skillful twister shows why James was awarded the 2016 CWA Diamond Dagger.”
—Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*
“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
“A real page-turner…Peter James is a talented writer and one I would love to read again.”
San Francisco Book Review
 

*His life in film:  Living in LA and producing films (Merchant in Venice with Al Pacino) eventually led Peter to write bestselling novels.  In 2001, he co-founded Movision Entertainment Limited where he was CEO until 2005. Movision produced these thirteen films on which he is an Executive Producer
*Adaptations – There are 3 smash-hit play adaptations of his work and potential TV series pick up for his famous Detective Roy Grace.  Current play, NOT DEAD ENOUGH stars Laura Whitmore and Bill Ward.
*Peter is an avid car buff and loves to motor race!  His first car was a 1929 Rolls Royce hearse and favorite cars he’s owned include a 1961 MGA 1600, a 1966 Mini Cooper S, a 1972 drophead Boss engined Mustang, a 1963 fixed head 3.8 Jaguar E-Type, a 1971 drophead V12 E-Type (the sixth one built) a 1986 BMW M5, a 1997 Aston Martin DB7, a 2004 Aston Martin Vanquish, my current Brabus S-Class Mercedes, my 2008 Bentley Continental Speed, my current Aston Martin Vanquish Volante and our classic 1987 Mercedes 500SL.
*In 1994 Penguin published his novel, Host, on two floppy discs – as well as print formats – and it is now in the Science Museum as the world’s first electronic novel.   It caused huge controversy, he was pilloried in the media for attempting to destroy the novel, and made front page news on many papers around the globe, all equally furious!  He subsequently became a media spokesperson for the electronic publishing age, and in 1996 found himself as a keynote speaker at a conference at UCLA on the future of reading, alongside (gulp) Steve Jobs and the CEO of Time Warner!
*His first job was cleaning Orson Welles’ home for 10 shillings an hour!
