I want them to suffer, and I want them dead. . .
Carly Chase is still traumatised after being in a fatal traffic accident which kills a teenage student from Brighton University. Then she receives news that turns her entire world into a living nightmare.
The drivers of the other two vehicles involved have been found tortured and murdered. Now Detective Superintendant Roy Grace of the Sussex Police force issues a stark and urgent warning to Carly: She could be next.
The police advise Carly her only option is to go into hiding and change her identity. The terrified woman disagrees – she knows these people have ways of hunting you down anywhere. If the police are unable to stop them, she has to find a way to do it herself. But already the killer is one step ahead of her, watching, waiting, and ready . . .
Dead Man's Grip is the seventh novel in the multi-million copy bestselling Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.
British author James s seventh crime novel featuring Det. Supt. Roy Grace (after 2010 s Dead Like You) opens with a fatal road accident in the center of Brighton involving a truck, a car, a van, and an unfortunate American cyclist, Tony Revere, who s the grandson of Mafia boss Sal Giordano. While the initial focus is on the van driver, lowlife Ewan Preece, who raced away from the accident, it becomes apparent that there s a more ominous force at work. Revere s family hires a chillingly rational killer called Tooth to eliminate every person present at the accident even though no one actually directly caused Revere s death. Grace works the case with sidekick Det. Sgt. Glenn Branson and the rest of his team of well-sketched members, each bringing his or her individual talent to the investigation. The grim creativity of the victims deaths and the ease of movement of the action are two of the many compelling reasons to stick with this series.

Dead Man's Grip
LOVED this book!!! Could not put it down as with other books by this author! Cannot wait till next! More please from Roy Grace series? Have now read all and each 1 got better and better. Cannot recommend Peter James enough!!!
Excellent as expected!
Another excellent read. Fast paced and a real roller coaster. Can't wait to read the next in the series.
Typically British ramblings with weak plot tidbits surrounded by overly indulged descriptions that not only place you in the scene but jail you there for entire chapters while you pray for another bit of storyline. Read one whole chapter where cover for detective while he went to a concert was all that was established. Couldn't read more than a chapter without falling asleep. Not riveting.
