‘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 books, now a major ITV series.
A ruthless crime. A race against time.
When a young farmer confronts intruders in the middle of the night, he has no idea that just minutes later he will be left dying in a pool of blood. What’s more chilling is what the perpetrators were willing to kill for.
At the scene of the crime, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace soon realizes this is no isolated robbery gone wrong, but the tip of the iceberg of a nationwide crime wave in which ruthless organized gangs are making more money from the illegal trade in dogs than they do in drugs. It’s a trade that pits him against some ruthless people who will kill anyone who gets in their way, because where there is greed, there is murder.
