Peter James loves his research, loves his home city of Brighton, knows Sussex CID inside out, and knows Hollywood pretty well too. Before he became a No 1 bestselling author he was a top screenwriter and movie producer.

Now for the first time he’s combined all these heady ingredients to give his longstanding detective Roy Grace one case he’ll never forget. LA producer Larry Brooker has secured rock chick Gaia to take the lead in a true historical romance set in Brighton. By the time the location bandwagon turns up, expectations are running high. Except an ingenious and ruthless stalker wants Gaia dead. Utterly gripping.
