But then he has a lot more to gain than anyone realizes, for one man’s disaster is another man’s fortune . . .Not even his case, Detective Roy Grace, haunted by the disappearance of his wife years ago, finds himself trying to put the pieces together. One of those pieces, Mark Warren, best man to Michael, who if it wasn’t for a trip would’ve been dead also, is acting very peculiar and considering him not knowing anything about the prank makes it hard to believe that someone so close doesn’t know anything. Upon working deeper in the case, things are just not adding up. Was it a accident or foul play, this one prank set in motion a series of events that leads the reader down a gripping, suspenseful narrative that is unpredictable and satisfies the thirst of a great suspense plot. Peter takes his readers on a thrill ride, and hopefully we’ve managed to capture some of that runaway rollercoaster feeling.” Finally, Peter James’ Left You Dead is due out in May 2021.
