Publisher's Summary

'I want them to suffer. I want them dead....'

Carly Chase is traumatised after being in a fatal traffic accident which kills a teenage student from Brighton University. Then she receives news that turns her entire world into a living nightmare. The drivers of the other two vehicles involved have been found tortured and murdered.

Now Detective Superintendent Roy Grace of the Sussex Police force issues a stark and urgent warning to Carly: She could be next. The student had deadly connections. Connections that stretch across the Atlantic. Someone has sworn revenge and won't rest until the final person involved in that fatal accident is dead.

The police advise Carly her only option is to go into hiding and change identity. The terrified woman disagrees - she knows these people have ways of hunting you down anywhere. If the police are unable to stop them, she has to find a way to do it herself. But already the killer is one step ahead of her, watching, waiting, and ready...

    "Brilliant crime"

    Absolutely brilliant! Was disappointed with the last Roy Grace but Peter James is back on form with this one. As I have visual problems and can't read at the moment I often struggle to find audiobooks that are as gripping as the written version. However James' descriptions and characterisations are so well done that you get completely carried away with the story. Highly recommended .

    "I really enjoyed this book"

    I do not know why but I could not put this book down. It was an unusual contrast of locations, the very British south coast and the American Hamptons. It also had enough personal detail to involve me in the characters, which I like. They were also very strong characters. It also had a happy ending after a few rather gory passages.
    The story teller was perfect for the job, each person was immediately recognisable, even the handheld game.
    I have not enjoyed a book this much for sometime.

    "Excellent and engrossing story"

    I've enjoyed a number of Peter James' Roy Grace novels, but think this is the best yet. I was gripped by the engrossing story as several, seemingly, disparate characters and story-lines all come together by the end of the book. The last few chapters are so exciting I was practically holding my breath as I listened eager to find out how things turned out. Highly recommended.

    "Peter James comes up trumps again"

    Brilliant book, just didn't want to put it down, a different slant to a road accident that grips you from start to finish.

    "Fascinating plot"

    This novel was a masterful and unusual plot line.I was prepared to suspend my belief because I was enjoying the journey!
    It was well written, and I cared about the characters as a result of the writing.

    "Gripping thriller"

    This was a fast moving and exciting hunt with macabre detail of the working of an inhuman killer, set against the familair backdrop of Brighton and its streets, The narration greatly added to the listening with appopriate voices making it more like a play than a novel. It chopped quicky from character and situation with frequent cliffhangers,
    My only reservation is the large number of 'chapters' over 100 ,caused some irritation and I found a number of questions unresolved, but that is perhaps deliberate and the opportunity for the author to continue the theme and the characters.
    Avery good listen.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed it"

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.Peter James has a way of keeping your absolute attention.The main character Roy Grace features in many Peter James novels and his personal life is a main vein through out. The narrators voice is easy on the ear and i would definately recommend this book.

    "A gripping read"

    We find the Roy Grace mysteries great fun and easy listening. The stories flow well with good pace and interest. This particular book is absolutely engrossing and hard to turn off. Some of the aspects are gruesome and a challenge to listen to but written in such a way that it's difficult not to listen for ...'5 more minutes'.
