Competition Time! Win a signed copy of Peter James’ latest novel ‘Dead Man’s Time’

To win a signed hardback copy of Peter James’ gripping new book ‘Dead Man’s Time’, we are challenging all Roy Grace fans to write a 140 character twitter crime novel based on the image above.

To take part, make sure you’re following @PeterJamesUK on twitter (if you’re not already) then simply post your mini novel as a reply to the image, remember to include the hashtag #140RoyGrace.

Here are a few examples of 140 character novels from renowned authors to get you started

You have until 5pm on Wednesday 5th June 2013 to get your novels in, Peter will then select his favourites and the two winners will be contacted at a later date.

Lastly, we would like to thank flickr user Kim Carpenter for the fantastic image.

This competition is open to UK residents only.
