• Dead If You Don’t, the 14th in the bestselling DS Roy Grace series, is out today, Thursday 17th May
  • Stand-alone thriller, Absolute Proof, will be released in October 2018
  • Launch event held at Amex Stadium in aid of the Sussex Police Charitable Trust

Last night at a glamourous launch at Brighton’s Amex stadium, internationally bestselling crime and thriller author Peter James launched not just one but two exciting novels for 2018.

The first, Dead If You Don’t, is published today, Thursday 17th May, and is the 14th in the number 1 bestselling series following DS Roy Grace. Peter’s next novel, Absolute Proof, will be released in October this year and is a breathless race against time prove the greatest mystery of all – what would happen if someone claimed to have absolute proof of God’s existence?

The launch, hosted by Peter and his publisher Pan Macmillan, was held at Brighton’s Amex Stadium where the action begins for Roy Grace in Dead If You Don’t – Grace’s deadliest case yet.  In the novel, Kipp Brown and his teenage son, Mungo, arrive at the Amex stadium for their team’s biggest-ever football game when, during a bomb scare, Mungo disappears. A short while later, Kipp receives a text with a ransom demand and a warning not to go to the police if he and his wife want to see their son alive again. But as a massive, covert manhunt for the boy and his kidnappers begins, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace starts to realize that not all is what it seems . . .


The launch was held in aid of Sussex Police Charitable Trust, of which Peter is co-Patron alongside Chief Constable Giles York, with donations made by Peter and Macmillan. A percentage of book sales were also donated to the charity by local independent bookseller City Books.

Dead If You Don’t is out now in hardback (Pan Macmillan, £20.00) and the much-anticipated Absolute Proof will be released in October 2018.
