Publisher's Summary

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 - definitely recommend"

    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

    "DISAPPOINTING"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Can not think of anyone who hasn't read Peter James, due to the constant references to his novels


    What was most disappointing about Graham Bartlett and Peter James ’s story?

    I believe Peter James's contribution to this book was to advertise his Roy Grace Novels


    What three words best describe Daniel Weyman’s voice?

    Relaxing, believable, listenable


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Death Comes Knocking?

    All references to Roy Grace novels by Peter James


    Any additional comments?

    Having read/listened and enjoyed all the Roy Grace books I thought it sad that Peter James felt the necessity to promote his novels in this way.

    "Dull"

    This book was incredibly dull and most irritating was the constant referrals back to similar incidences in the PD James stories. Why??
