Dead Man’s Time by Peter James

The Dark Side of Brighton
Who knew that the town that bought us The Laines, Brighton Pavilion and the pier could have a dark side? Peter James, author of the Roy Grace series, seemed to have a pretty good idea, as he set all nine of his crime series in the seaside town.
The latest, Dead Man’s Time, is out now, so we take the opportunity to find out exactly what horrors East Sussex’s most famous town has to offer…

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.
