Publisher's Summary

The brand-new Detective Superintendent Roy Grace novel.

Now a major TV series starring John Simm. 

Niall and Eden Paternoster start their Sunday the same way they always do - with a long drive, a visit to a country house and a quick stop at the local supermarket on the way home.

But this Sunday ends differently - because while Niall waits and waits in the car park for Eden to pick up supplies, Eden never returns. She’s not waiting for him at home, and none of their family or friends have heard from her.

Gone without a trace, Niall is arrested on suspicion of her murder. When DS Roy Grace is called in to investigate, it doesn’t take long to realise that nothing is quite as it seems - and this might be his most mysterious case yet....

Sunday Times number one best seller Peter James returns with another instalment in his award-winning Roy Grace novels.

Welcome back, Peter!

After two sub par stories, I was delighted to listen to this excellent new edition. Although a couple of parts could be deemed ‘unbelievable’, it is a great work of fiction and I couldn’t wait to get back to it every time I put it down.
There seemed to be a mistake in the dates (funeral scheduled for Monday the 13th September which couldn’t have been I think it should have been 30th) but overall a great listen and enjoyable story, like the good old days! Well done, Peter.

Ludicrous climax

Not up to previous books. Decent narration but the climactic scene was so ludicrous and corny as to pull the decent bits of the book down. Also how so many trained detectives could miss so many clues screaming for discovery was also frustrating.

Enthralling Story!

Another outstanding installment in the Roy Grace series. Excellent performance by the reader. No spoilers but tissue alert...you might need a few.

I loved this book one of the best. Roy grace is awesome the perfect gentleman. There were some very sad moment that brought tears but it’s a great read. I love audible I listen to work and back and Peter James makes travelling a pleasure.
