Description

She is the loving wife of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, but there's more to her than meets the eye.

Harry and Freya are an ordinary couple who dreamed for years of finding an overlooked treasure at a car boot sale, until the day they did.Defying instruction not to contact the police, Kipp reluctantly does just that, and Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is brought into investigate. On the one side we have the security and attempted murder of Gaia and on the other we have a torso found which the Murder team are trying to identify. Carly Chase is still traumatised after being in a fatal traffic accident which kills a teenage student from Brighton University. Set in present day Brighton, these books follow the life of Detective Superintendent Grace, we first met him aged 39 and we soon discover that his wife Sandy disappeared almost 10 years previously, the same day as Roy’s 30th Birthday.

That same afternoon, workmen digging up a park in another part of the city, unearth the remains of a woman in her early twenties, who has been dead for thirty years. It’s brilliantly done of course, but its EIGHT books later now and I would like some kind of resolution there soon. The obsessions with the rock superstar Gaia didn't really interest me, but certainly gave the book a different perspective that I surprisingly enjoyed; it made the plot a little bit different. Peter talked about his real life stalker of many years, who would turn up to every book signing and whom Peter regarded as harmless until she sent him a photo of her shrine to Peter James. Perhaps the recipe for polularity is just that, violence and murders in very very short chapters for barely literate audiences.Kevin Spinella, chief crime reporter for the Brighton Argus, demands details on the latest threats to Gaia even though he’s on his honeymoon in the Maldives.

Failed playwright Drayton Wheeler, convinced that producer Larry Brooker stole the film’s idea from him, is plotting revenge. For Bryce is obsessed with her, and he intends to destroy everything and everyone she has ever known and loved - and then her too.These events collide to become a nightmare for Detective Superintendent Roy Grace when an attempt on the life of Gaia is made days before she leaves her Bel Air home to fly to Brighton (her home town) so he has to juggle the hunt for a potential obsessed stalker in his city with an ongoing murder investigation with very few leads and the continuing pregnancy complications of his girlfriend, Cleo. The first thing that jolted me was that an estimate was made of the victim's height from his femur and tibia. Even worse, bad jokes ensue as the gallows humour of those whose job it is to clean up horrific crime scenes gains traction. Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. Roy Grace is a great detective, but for me, it's the characterisation of the side characters that really brings these stories alive.
