YOU ARE DEAD - A Shout out Says:
Another thrill kill book I will not be reading, but I know they're popular so I'm sharing with you!
October features ghosts, goblins, horror movies and now a book so terrifying you are afraid to read it after dark. International best-selling author Peter James will keep you up at night with his new thriller YOU ARE DEAD (Minotaur/St. Martin’s Press; October 6th, 2015). The Huffington Post says “[YOU ARE DEAD] may just be [Peter James'] best yet. . . . Truly masterful. . . . James is a master of background noises and images. . . . [which] lure the reader into the already compelling but often disturbing mesh of his narrative. . . . A book you really can't put down!”

Two events occurring decades apart seem to be unconnected, but as bodies continue to go missing, bodies from the past start to resurface. Roy Grace makes the chilling realization that one thing is the key to both the past and the present - and now, beyond any doubt, he knows that Brighton has its first ever serial killer.

About the Book

They were marked for death.
The last words Jamie Ball hears from his fiancée, Logan Somerville, are in a terrified mobile phone call. She has just driven into the underground car park beneath the block of flats where they live in Brighton. Then she screams and the phone goes dead. The police are on the scene within minutes, but Logan has vanished, leaving behind her neatly parked car and mobile phone.
That same afternoon, workmen digging up a park in another part of the city, unearth the remains of a woman in her early twenties, who has been dead for thirty years.
At first, to Roy Grace and his team, these two events seem totally unconnected. But then another young woman in Brighton goes missing - and yet another body from the past surfaces.
Meanwhile, an eminent London psychiatrist meets with a man who claims to know information about Logan. And Roy Grace has the chilling realization that this information holds the key to both the past and present crimes . . . Does Brighton have its first serial killer in over eighty years?
