Peter James: Perfect People


Internationally bestselling crime writer Peter James makes his living exposing the murky underbelly beneath the postcard-perfect facade of seaside Brighton. His Roy Grace series draws on the forensic know-how James gathers as an embedded police observer; for years, he’s spent an average of one day a week with the Sussex Police.

In Not Dead Yet, a rock superstar is shadowed by a stalker’s death threats, as she films the movie she hopes will transform her into a serious actress, on location in Brighton. Meanwhile, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, finally happy in his home life, is watching the nightmare unfold, as the stalker waits for their moment.

Peter James spent the first part of his career in the film business, as a writer and producer, giving him juicy insights into the world of fame and the machinations of Hollywood.

Peter will talk to true crime author Rochelle Jackson, aficionado of all things grisly.
