Review

Peter James is acknowledged as being one of the top thriller writers in the UK, and his series of crime novels featuring DI Roy Grace are the best of the current genre. But in his new novel PERFECT PEOPLE he has proved he can depart from the formula and break the mould.
It gives a vividly detailed description o f the process involved in creating a genetically modified baby. A young couple are grieving over the death of their four-year-old son from a rare genetic disorder. They desperately want another child, but fear it might inherit the same disease. From the moment they meet the sinister geneticist who offers to create a new child from their cells, the pages just keep on turning themselves. The ending is so horrifyingly scary that I was unable to sleep properly for several nights. --Joan Collins picked PERFECT PEOPLE for her Book of the Year in this week's Mail on Sunday

Review

'As ever, James writes beautifully, maintaining the pace with short, punchy chapters. But it's his firm grasp of the moral issues surrounding designer babies that makes Perfect People so satisfying – and so unsettling.' (The Guardian)

'Peter James is mounting a bloody assault on the world of the British crime thriller, taking it by the throat and shaking it vigorously. It's working ...' (The Independent)

'James has produced a suitably breathless fan-pleaser about accelerating evolution.' (The Daily Telegraph)

'The ending is so horrifyingly scary that I was unable to sleep properly for several nights.' (The Mail on Sunday)

'Peter James's clever page-turner Perfect People focuses not on the past but risks for the future.' (The Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
