Love You Dead
A shocking reveal threatens to unravel Detective Superintendent Roy Grace’s happy new life.
Grace is newly married, having moved to a country cottage with Chloe and their baby son. But his first, long-missing wife, now found, has left Grace a surprise greater than he could have imagined.
Yet the police need Grace at work: an escaped murderer who left a bullet in him is back and a Black Widow is leaving an international trail of corpses after – in every sense – bleeding them dry. Now, she’s come to Brighton for her next rich target . . .
Love You Dead is the gripping twelfth book in Peter James' Roy Grace series.
