This is a TV tie-in edition of Looking Good Dead, the second bestselling title in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series from number one crime writer, Peter James.
Now a major ITV series, adapted for television by screenwriter Russell Lewis and starring John Simm as Roy Grace.
When a young woman's body is found butchered in Brighton, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace cannot help but think of his own missing wife and her unsolved fate.
Elsewhere in the city, when Tom Bryce finds a disc left on a train, he simply tries to do the right thing - return it to its owner. But this attempted act of kindness makes him the sole witness to that same vicious murder.
Learning that Tom has made a statement to Grace's team, the killers have to act. But when they plan the murder of the Bryce family, it's not just revenge - it's entertainment.

I couldn't put it down

Sharply plotted, suitably sordid
James dreams up a horrific intersection of extreme perversion and Internet technology in his frightening, expertly constructed second Det. Supt. Roy Grace novel . . . the rapid-fire suspense builds to a terrifying, graphic conclusion that leaves tantalizing room for future installments in the series
A sick website which features videos of people being murdered is at the dark heart of this razor-sharp crime thriller. Gripping - but not for the faint-hearted
