Join Wayne for a fascinating event to celebrate his explosive new novel Picture You Dead, the latest Roy Grace thriller from the number one bestseller Peter James.
Much loved by crime and thriller fans for his fast-paced page-turners full of unexpected plot twists, sinister characters and accurate portrayal of modern day policing, Peter James has won more than 40 awards for his work, including the WHSmith Best Crime Author of All Time Award and Crime Writers’ Association Diamond Dagger.
In Picture You Dead, readers discover the darkness that lurks around every corner in the latest instalment of Peter James’s award-winning detective series, which is now a major ITV programme starring John Simm as Roy Grace.
Harry and Freya, an ordinary couple, dreamed for years of finding something priceless buried among the tat in a car boot sale. It was a dream they knew in their hearts would never come true … until the day it did.
They buy a drab portrait for a few pounds for its beautiful frame, planning to cut the painting out. Then, back at home, they realise there seems to be another picture underneath – and it’s a stunning landscape.
Could it be a long lost masterpiece from 1770? If so, it could be worth millions.
One collector is certain it is genuine. He is someone who uses any method he can to get what he wants and will stop at nothing.
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace finds himself plunged into the unfamiliar and rarefied world of fine art.
Outwardly it appears respectable, gentlemanly, above reproach. But beneath the veneer, he rapidly finds that greed, deception and violence walk hand-in-hand.
And Harry and Freya Kipling are about to discover that their dream is turning into their worst nightmare.
‘Sinister and riveting … Peter James is one of the best British crime writers, and therefore one of the best in the world.’ Lee Child
