Dead at First Sightav Peter James241
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace exposes the dark side of internet dating in the intriguing crime novel Dead at First Sight, by award winning author Peter James. A man waits at a London airport for the love of his life to arrive. Across the Atlantic, a retired cop waits in a bar in Florida's Key West for his first date with the lady who is his soulmate. The two men are about to discover they've been scammed out of almost every penny they have in the world - and that neither women exist. In the same week, Roy Grace is called to investigate the suicide of a woman in Brighton, that is clearly not what it seems. As his investigations continue, a handsome motivational speaker comes forward. He's discovered his identity is being used to scam eleven different women online. The first he knew of it was a phone call from one of them saying, 'You don't know me, but I thought I knew you'. That woman is now dead. Roy Grace realizes he is looking at the tip of an iceberg. Can he bring down the murderous global empire built on clever, cruel internet scams? Although the Roy Grace novels can be read in any order, Dead at First Sight is the fifteenth title in the bestselling series. Discover more of the Brighton detective's investigations with Find Them Dead and Left You Dead. Now a major ITV series, Grace, starring John Simm.

James manages to add enough surprises and drama that by the end you're rooting for the police and really don't know if they will finally get their men * Sunday Express * No one can deny James's success as a crime novelist . . . The Grace stories almost always go to the top of the bestseller lists, not least because they are supremely well-told. James writes meticulously researched police procedurals, so informed that you can smell the canteen coffee . . . enthralling * Daily Mail * In my thirty four years of policing, never have I come across a writer who so accurately depicts "The Job" -- Detective Investigator Pat Lanigan, Office of the District Attorney, NYPD A full-throated expose * Kirkus * The action is fast and furious, but, as in all novels in this series, it's held together by the unflappable character of Superintendent Grace . . . Not to be missed * Booklist *
