This is the series everyone is reading. From the number-one chart-topper Peter James, comes the ninth novel in the multi-million-copy, best-selling Roy Grace series....
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.

"A great story."
Gripping from the start. Mostly believable characters with moving moments and a surprising final conclusion.
"Poor excuse for a trip to NY"
This is the first Peter James book that I haven't loved. Rambling, irrelevant, confusing, dull
All the familiar favourite characters are brought together in a great story with a more international flavour than the usual setting. Sometimes I was on the edge of seat in suspense and excitement, utterly immersed in the story, occasionally shouting at the phone, though it did nothing to warn the character in danger. Some highs, some lows, and sometimes too much description of clothing and hairstyles,room decorations and general irrelavances, but on the whole thoroughly enjoyable.
I'm getting through all the Roy Grace books one by one on audible. This is the best one so far! I loved it, brought me to tears at the end with the absolute best ending I could have asked for.
The narrator was great & as always, Peter James makes the places and characters so real.
Read or listen and enjoy.
"Looking forward to next book"
I enjoyed the book, which was well read by Daniel Weyman, looking forward to the next book.
"Another great story for all fans of Peter James"
Yet again Peter James pulls out of the bag another really good story, never disappointing always a new twist but still with our beloved Roy Grace
"Another good read"
Loved the book it held my attention. A very series of crime thrillers. I look forward to my next reD
"gripping needed to know what happened"
A good twist each word was gripping my first murder mystery already downloaded the next book not my normal thing loved it a new fan x
"Brilliant plot and performance"
Fantastic story by Perter James. One of those books that you cant put down. would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves crime stories.
"Not one of the best."
I really like this series of books but didn't enjoy this one as much. Was all a bit far fetched and the Amos Smallbone storyline wasn't believable at all. Very convenient what happened at the end.
Very little revealed about Sandy storyline either and can't believe she had an affair with another policeman. Especially that one!
Hoping next book returns to form.
