You are Dead is the eleventh thrilling crime novel in Peter James' bestelling Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series.
Is Detective Superintendent Roy Grace tracking his home city’s first serial killer in over eighty years?
A series of young women – all beautiful, all with long brown hair – have been stalked and abducted. Each victim is found with a brand on their body, a marking that reads ‘U R Dead’. And some of their remains are from thirty years ago.
When Logan Somerville is taken while on the phone to her fiancé, Grace must find a lead, connect the cases and track down the killer before they can strike again . . .
At the start of James's superior 11th procedural featuring Det. Supt. Roy Grace (after 2014's Want You Dead), Jamie Ball is talking with his fianc e, Logan Somerville, on his cell phone when he hears her scream. Logan was just pulling into the underground garage of their apartment building in Brighton, England. That same day in Brighton, workers discover a woman's skeleton that was buried more than 30 years earlier under a park's asphalt sidewalk. The new and the old cases appear to be unrelated, until Grace and his Sussex Major Crime Team find a common link in the disappearances of young women through the years. As the detectives deal with the caseload, they also cope with a favorite colleague's death. Despite Roy's second marriage and five-month-old son, he's still haunted by the unsolved 10-year disappearance of Sandy, his first wife, especially when a friend mentions that she may be living in Germany. Carefully crafted, realistic characters make this entry a standout.
