Shortlisted for Theaksons Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year, 2008.
Here's the latest spine-tingling murder case for Detective Superintendent Roy Grace - from the best-selling author of Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead.
On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was 60 miles away, asleep in bed. At least, that's the way it looks to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, who is called in to investigate the kinky slaying of beautiful young Brighton socialite Katie Bishop.
Soon, Grace starts coming to the conclusion that Bishop has performed the apparently impossible feat of being in two places at once. Has someone stolen his identity, or is he simply a very clever liar?
As Grace digs deeper behind the facade of the Bishops' outwardly respectable life, it starts to become clear that all is not at all as it first seemed. And then he digs just a little too far, and suddenly the fragile stability of his own troubled, private world is facing destruction.
"Neil Pearson, who is establishing quite a niche for himself reading British detective-fiction, does a convincingly matter-of-fact job with Grace (an intuitive copper with an enigmatic backstory) and a supporting cast of Brighton low-lifes." (
