Fans of Peter James and his best-selling Roy Grace series of crime novels know that his audiobooks draw on in-depth research into the lives of Brighton and Hove police and are set in a world every bit as gritty as the real thing. His friend, Graham Bartlett, was a long-serving detective in the city once described as Britain's crime capital. Together, in Death Comes Knocking, they have given a gripping account of the city's most challenging cases, taking the listener from crime scenes and incident rooms to the morgue and introducing some of the real-life detectives who inspired Peter James' characters.
Whether it's the murder of a dodgy nightclub owner and his family in Sussex's worst nonterrorist mass murder or the race to find the abductor of a young girl; tracking down the antique trade's most notorious 'knocker boys' or nailing an audacious ring of forgers; or hunting for a cold-blooded killer who executed a surfer or catching a pair who kidnapped a businessman, leaving him severely beaten, to die on a hillside, the authors skillfully evoke the dangerous inside story of policing, the personal toll it takes and the dedication of those who risk their lives to keep the public safe.

brilliant book. I found that this 'gelled' all the Roy Grace books- it gives the other real life accounts of the characters and stories in the books
If anyone likes reading stories by Peter James they will find this very interesting, so I recommend they give it a try
