‘Peter James is one of the best British crime writers, and therefore one of the best in the world.’ - LEE CHILD, author of The Jack Reacher series

Discover the darkness that lurks around every corner in the latest instalment of the award-winning Grace series, now a major ITV series.

A priceless discovery. A deadly cost.

Harry and Freya never thought their dream of finding something priceless in a car boot sale would come true – until the day it did . . .

After buying a portrait for its beautiful frame, they find another picture beneath of a stunning landscape. Could it be a long-lost masterpiece from 1770? If genuine, it could be worth millions.

One collector is certain it is genuine. Someone who uses any method he can to get what he wants.

Roy Grace is plunged into the unfamiliar and rarefied world of fine art. Outwardly appearing respectable and above reproach, but he rapidly finds that greed, deception and violence walk hand-in-hand. And Harry and Freya are about to discover that their dream is turning into their worst nightmare . . .
