Some will wait a lifetime to take their revenge....
A vicious robbery at a secluded Brighton mansion leaves its elderly occupant dying. And millions of pounds' worth of valuables have been taken. But, as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, heading the enquiry, rapidly learns, there is one priceless item of sentimental value that the old woman's powerful family cherish above all else. And they are fully prepared to take the law into their own hands, and will do anything, absolutely anything, to get it back.
Within days, Grace is racing against the clock, following a murderous trail that leads him from the shady antiques world of Brighton, across Europe, and all the way back to the New York waterfront gang struggles of 1922, chasing a killer driven by the force of one man's greed and another man's fury.
Dead Man's Time is the ninth novel in the multi-million copy best-selling Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.

A return to great form with an engrossing story
James at his best
This book ranks high amongst my 'listens'. Fist of all the narration is excellent. The story is probably the best of all the Roy Grace books and it has the distinction of eliciting sympathy for one of the shadier characters. I was willing him to commit not one but two murders by the end of the book. I was also pleased that one other man got away with murder too.So that says something about how unusual this story is. There is also quite a delightful twist in the tail. I have a few unanswered questions but all in all a five star book.
The old man because I was on his side from page 1 line 1.
Daniel Weyman's narration brings the characters to life much more vividly than mere reading ever could and greatly enhances the listening experience. His change of voice and accent for each character never waivers throughout the story and Peter James must be delighted to have such an excellent reader of his book.
Yes, but also wanted to make it last as long as possible. Quite a dilemma!
