Product Description

Amazon Review

Despite his triumphs in a variety of endeavours (including film producer and horror novelist), Peter James’ current career as a writer of highly adroit crime novels has effortlessly assumed centre stage (James has long maintained that he was always essentially a crime writer). Such books as Not Dead Enough have revitalised the tired genre of the police procedural, powered by James’ sympathetically characterised copper Roy Grace. The author’s ace in the hole is, of course, his machine-tooled plotting, and that skill is well to the fore in Dead Tomorrow, quite the most authoritative entry in the series yet.

A teenager's body is recovered from the sea off the cost of Sussex, with vital organs excised. Two equally grim subsequent discoveries follow. At the same time, another teenager, Caitlinn Beckett, lies in a Brighton hospital; she will die if she is not the recipient of a liver transplant. The National Health Service cannot help, and Lynn, Catlinn's mothers, turns in desperation to clandestine sources. DS Roy Grace, on the trail of the killers of the dead teenagers, discovers a sinister cadre of Eastern European child traffickers. And here Peter James dispatches his usual peerless orchestration of suspense as two elements coalesce: can Roy Grace prevent another child death – and how far will the distraught Lynn Beckett go to save the life of her daughter?

Dead Simple, the first book in the Roy Grace series, immediately demonstrated that James was not content to simply reheat the clichés of the genre, and Looking Good Dead showed a similar willingness to reinvigorate the genre. Dead Tomorrow, the fifth entry, keeps up the momentum (with the usual vivid evocation of Roy Grace’s – and Peter James' – Brighton). Of course, if the police procedural field does nothing for you, there's nothing to say. But aficionados will be in seventh heaven. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


An exciting, fast, satisfying read. --Eurocrime

One of the most fiendishly clever crime fiction plotters. --The Daily Mail

Format: Hardcover
Peter James continues his fine Roy Grace series with another quite superb tale. Every story is rooted in Brighton, and this one is no exception, and the inventive and original plotlines and the characterisation of the main players lift these above ordinary detective fiction. Having dealt with fraud, Internet porn, identity theft, and a host of other topics in previous novels, James turns his attention to the trade in human organs - and he does it with his customary attention to detail, to the extent that you end up feeling you have been educated as well as entertained.

Roy Grace is a satisfyingly complex character, with enough of the standard "policeman" traits to be recognisable, but with some original flaws and failings which complicate his private life (and sometimes his professional career). His colleagues are similarly brought to life, with the minimum of stereotyping, and the villains are believable and , well, villainous.

In "Dead Tomorrow" the investigation is woven with moral issues, (I won't say more, as I don't want to spoil the story), which James handles superbly, without ever preaching. The plot develops at a satisfying pace, and as the reader, you see the whole thing as the threads are brought together, but this never feels predictable, such is James skill with plot twists.

All in all a worthy addition to the series, it's just a shame we have to wait for the next one. If you are new to these, I suggest you pick up at the beginning (Dead Simple) and work forward from there - not that you can't read Dead Tomorrow as a stand alone, but you'll get so much more from it, having read the others first - oh and the nearest comparison to these novels (for me anyway) are the Inspector Banks series, by Peter Robinson, if you enjoy those, Grace should be right up your street.

Format: Paperback
Superbly researched, this book exposes the horrendous trade in body parts for monetary gain and the desperate lives of the street kids of Romania. We hear about such "services" in the media but in Dead Tomorrow those offering them are shown to be devoid of all humanity. Those of us with children can empathise with Lynne in her bid to find a replacement liver for her daughter at all costs when the National Health Service grinds so incomprehensively and slowly. The shortage of organ donors in the UK is highlighted and should prompt every reader to carry a donor card. This would be such a positive legacy of Dead Tomorrow. The Police underwater search unit is well portrayed with some new characters but Roy Grace's "team" engages us as ever - Glenn's continuing marital problems and Norman's un-PC behaviour being developed. Roy's own personal happiness with Cleo shines through but the spectre of Sandy still floats over the story. More great Brighton and Hove locations too. As ever, the various "strands" of story cleverly weave ever closer till the last page is reached. Another unputdownable book from Peter James.

Format: Paperback
Another gripping story by PJ covering so many topics. I would not normally choose a novel about people-trafficking but this gives plenty of food for thought. If PJ is to be believed in this story it is big business. This is what I admire about this author - his fearlessness in tackling difficult issues and his ability to set both sides through his characters. This book is heart-rending in so many areas - the street children of Romania and the awfulness of their plight; Caitlin who needs a liver transplant and the despair of her mother crossing all boundaries to achieve this at any price. There is some softness here too to counter-balance the horror - Grace is happier than in any novel so far, trying to cast his past demons aside. James is adept in keeping the reader updated on case details when, at briefings, Grace calls upon his team to give a resumee. This is perfect for the reader in picking up details which may have been lost. He pens a brilliant style.

Format: Hardcover
The sixth book in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series finds him, several months after the events which took place in the prior novel, "Dead Man's Footsteps," promoted to head up the Major Crime squad. His nemesis, Assistant Chief Constable Alison Vosper, has been promoted and moved to another part of the country, making his job a bit easier and less stressful. He is presently trying to impress her successor, but finds that effort quite difficult by virtue of the new case he and his squad are working on: Three dead bodies have been found in the English Channel, all their major internal organs quite expertly excised. The ensuing investigation, run along various lines, brings into play a timely issue: the international trafficking of not only humans, but human organs. The author puts a very human face on the tale, introducing Caitlin Beckett, a teenager living for the past six years with serious liver disease, becoming more serious by the day, with her mother desperately willing to do anything necessary to save her life.

On a more personal note, Grace, approaching forty years of age, is finally able to move on, romantically, after his wife's utter disappearance nearly ten years prior, and is hoping to make his relationship with Cleo, the area's chief mortician, more permanent. The cops in this novel, as usual with this author, are truly dedicated, altruistic men and women. Still present, among other cops we have grown to know and love, is Glenn Branson, whose unhappy marital situation has him still in residence in Grace's living quarters.
