Dear Peter James,

Ever since I was 15 years old when I read my first novel cover to cover, Arcade by Robert Maxxe, I’ve been keeping a book list in which I record every book I read, the date I finished it, whether it was a paper back or hardback, how many pages it had and my rating out of ten.

I thought you may be interested in what I had to write about Dead Man’s Grip…

Thursday 4 December 2014, Finished reading Dead Man’s Grip by Peter James.
Hard Back (HB) 406 pages, 10/10

It’s been a while since I’ve read a Roy Grace/Peter James book. I had been reading his Perfect People novel and though 388 pages in, I put it aside to read Dead Man’s Grip which I conveniently came across in a charity shop.

I would say this is his best Roy Grace story I’ve read, but won’t only because Peter James always writes brilliant Roy Grace stories, but I must mention that this book got me pacing the room, screaming out in shock, thumping the book in excitement and dancing about the room like the lunatic I really am.

The twists and turns will stay with me until I’m old and senile.

Peter James at his sizzling best. The last chapter--- WOW! Now I wasn’t expecting that!

The good news is that I’ve got Dead Man’s Time waiting patiently to be read, which was again conveniently picked up at a charity shop for a fraction of the cover price.

Having already read the first four chapters, I just know I’m in store for another roller coaster adventure!


Thanks Peter, as always your fan…
