Dead Man’s Grip still at No 1

DEAD MAN’S GRIP, the 7th Roy Grace novel by Peter James has maintained the number 1 spot on the hardback bestseller lists for this coming weekend. Again it has beaten Jeffrey Deaver’s James Bond novel into second place. According to Neilsen BookScan figures DEAD MAN’S GRIP has sold nearly 28,000 copies in just 10 days since publication!

DEAD MAN’S GRIP was launched in style, with over 500 people attending the glitzy launch party involving a stunt that recreated a scene from the new book, in which a white van is recovered from the Port containing a ‘dead body’ which turned out to be Peter himself!

DEAD MAN’S GRIP follows the hugely successful DEAD LIKE YOU, which remained in the top 20 for 11 consecutive weeks, and two weeks at No 1, also reaching no 1 on the paperback charts. Some praise for the new novel:

The Daily Mail – “As always, he has delivered the must-read crime novel of the summer.”!!

The Daily Mirror – “What sets James apart is his extraordinary attention to detail and sheer authenticity of his police procedurals.”

BookBrunch – “Grace out sells Bond”

Prima – “Fans of homegrown crime thrillers lap this up”

Star – “Bestselling author Peter James continues to thrill with the seventh Roy Grace novel, which is as well researched and gripping as ever!”

Shots Mag – “‘Dead Man’s Grip’ brings a whole new dimension to this series, and in my view lifts it way above its peers…. I really couldn’t wait to finish, to see how it would be resolved…. Excellent”
