Dead Man's Footsteps
The discovery of a woman’s body and a link to the events of 9/11 take Detective Superintendent Roy Grace around the world in Dead Man’s Footsteps, by award-winning crime author Peter James. Now a major ITV series, Grace, adapted for television by screenwriter Russell Lewis and starring John Simm.
Amid the tragic mayhem of the morning of 9/11, failed Brighton businessman and ne’er-do-well Ronnie Wilson sees the chance of a lifeline: to shed his debts, disappear and reinvent himself in another country.
Six years later the discovery of the skeletal remains of a woman’s body in a storm drain in Brighton leads Roy Grace on an enquiry spanning the globe, and into a desperate race against time to save the life of a woman being hunted down like an animal in the streets and alleys of Brighton.
Although the Roy Grace novels can be read in any order, Dead Man’s Footsteps is the fourth gripping title in the bestselling series. Enjoy more of the Brighton detective’s investigations in Dead Tomorrow and Dead Like You.
Now a major ITV series, Grace, starring John Simm.
Tense, beautifully paced and excellent on police atmosphere and procedure
A real page-turner, and the cliffhanging conclusion left me eagerly awaiting DS Grace’s next outing
