Peter James – You Are Dead – Roy Grace # 11 ****
Book 50 of 2015
Peter James has written eleven police procedural novels featuring Brighton Detective Superintendent (DS) Roy Grace. The eleventh installment in this series is You Are Dead and the first book that I have read in the series. I can tell you it won’t be the last!! You Are Dead is the 50th book that I have read in 2015. I am now one book away from my goal!!
You Are Dead opens with the abduction of a young woman Logan Somerville, from the parking garage below her apartment block in Brighton. That same day workers refurbishing a 30-year old pathway in the park dig up the body of a young woman who was killed at the time of the initial construction of the pathway. At first it seems that the two crimes can not be connected but soon after another woman with long brown hair like Logan’s and a another body from the past washes ashore Roy Grace is convinced that the two are connected and he is chasing Brighton’s first serial killer in eighty years!
