Dead Simple

4.05 based on 8650 ratings & 778 reviews on


A special edition of Dead Simple, the first book in the Roy Grace series by Peter James, reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan’s 70th anniversary.

It was meant to be a harmless stag-night prank. A few hours later Michael Harrison has disappeared and his friends are dead. With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace - a man haunted by the shadow of his own missing wife - is contacted by Michael's beautiful, distraught fiancée, Ashley Harper.

Grace discovers that the one man who ought to know Michael Harrison's whereabouts is saying nothing. But then he has a lot more to gain than anyone realizes, for one man's disaster is another man's fortune . . .
