The blurb . . .

The first ten novels of Peter James' enormously popular, multi-award-winning crime series featuring Detective Superintendent Roy Grace are collected together in this EBook bundle.
These ten bestselling titles follow Brighton's best police detective as he investigates missing persons, terrible murders, copycat killers, and races against the clock to catch dangerous criminals before they strike again.
Peter James' Roy Grace EBook Bundle: Books 1-10 contains the following gripping novels from the Roy Grace series:

Dead Simple
Looking Good Dead
Not Dead Enough
Dead Man's Footsteps
Dead Tomorrow
Dead Like You
Dead Man's Grip
Not Dead Yet
Dead Man's Time
Want You Dead

My thoughts . . .

First of all, I started reading these in paper back way back before the Kindle even existed! It seems like a life time ago (it's actually 11 years since Roy Grace first graced (no pun intended) our book shelves!) and I was totally in love from the start. My brother actually introduced me to Peter James and I have never looked back. I sit and wait eagerly for the next instalment to be published, and devour it in the day - although I try my hardest not to because I never want them to end!

I've come to the blogging world too late to review them all individually, but I certainly will be moving forward!

I would highly recommend these books, each follows the life of DS Roy Grace, Brighton's finest major crime investigator. Each book works exceptionally well as a stand alone, you are given enough background about his personal life to understand any references and to appreciate what is going on in that particular book, but the focus is on the crimes and criminals of that story.

Each book is so brilliantly written, with plots that twist and turn and shock and stun and leave you gasping for breath and begging for more.

James introduces us to some of the most unsavoury criminals ever, with some of the most heinous and gruesome crimes possible.

I can't wait for the next one!
