Dead Man's Footsteps
It's not often that a series keeps getting better; there's usually a sagging point somewhere, often in the middle of a run, sometimes at the end. Author's seem to lose their pace, they're not interested in their character's anymore; they've written about every aspect of their lives, their families lives and there's nothing left to say. But this is just not the case with Peter James' Roy Grace series.
Fastidiously researching his material, James makes it impossible to get bored creating compelling characters and plots so stylish and intricate, you almost need a pen and paper to keep track. In a flooded market, he towers over his competitors; providing superior thrills and fiendish plots.
Greed, seduction, betrayal; Dead Man's Footsteps has it all. There are only a few books you read in your life where you go to bed reading them, then wake up and have to read more. Full of twists, turns and complex puzzles, I couldn't put it down. Bring on the next one!
