A gripping account of Brighton's toughest cases by long-serving detective Graham Bartlett and bestselling author Peter James.
Fans of Peter James and his bestselling Roy Grace series of crime novels know that his books draw on in-depth research into the lives of Brighton and Hove police and are set in a world every bit as gritty as the real thing. His friend Graham Bartlett was a long-serving police officer in the city once described as Britain's 'crime capital'. Together they have written a gripping account of the cases Graham worked on, which are just as exciting and intriguing as those solved by Roy Grace.
From the horrific murder of his family committed by Paul Teed to the abduction of a young girl by Russell Bishop, from tracking down some of the antique trade's most notorious 'knocker boys' to nailing a ring of forgers, from attending an autopsy to introducing the real-life detectives who inspired Peter James's characters, the authors skilfully evoke the dangerous reality of policing Roy Grace's Brighton.
