Death Comes Knocking: Policing Roy Grace’s Brighton (Unabridged)
Fans of Peter James and his best-selling Roy Grace series of crime novels know that his audiobooks 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 detective in the city once described as Britain’s crime capital. Together, in Death Comes Knocking, they have given a gripping account of the city’s most challenging cases, taking the listener from crime scenes and incident rooms to the morgue and introducing some of the real-life detectives who inspired Peter James’ characters. Whether it’s the murder of a dodgy nightclub owner and his family in Sussex’s worst nonterrorist mass murder or the race to find the abductor of a young girl; tracking down the antique trade’s most notorious ‘knocker boys’ or nailing an audacious ring of forgers; or hunting for a cold-blooded killer who executed a surfer or catching a pair who kidnapped a businessman, leaving him severely beaten, to die on a hillside, the authors skillfully evoke the dangerous inside story of policing, the personal toll it takes and the dedication of those who risk their lives to keep the public safe.
