JERSEY OPERA HOUSE / FRIDAY 28 SEPTEMBER / 20.00 / £15
‘I do feel that with Bergerac having long gone, the time is right for a new Jersey-based crime fiction novel and I’ll be the bloke to bring it.’ Peter James, Jersey Evening Post interview.
Join Peter James, who has recently moved to Jersey, as he discusses his life and work. Peter is the international bestselling author of many award-winning novels. His Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series, set in Brighton, is published in thirty-seven territories with worldwide sales of over nineteen million copies, and has given him twelve consecutive Sunday Times number ones. In 2015 WHSmith customers publicly voted him the Greatest Crime Author of All Time and in 2016 he became the recipient of the coveted CWA Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award for sustained excellence. All his novels reflect his deep interest in the world of the police.
‘Peter James has penetrated the inner workings of police procedures, and the inner thoughts and attitudes of real detectives, as no English crime writer before him.’ The Times
Dedicated to authenticity, Peter bases his books upon real life experiences he has witnessed through shadowing the Sussex Police. In researching Dead If You Don’t, his recently published 14th DS Roy Grace novel, Peter travelled to Albania to gain a better understanding of the roots of the 2,000 strong Albanian community in Brighton; investigated untraceable cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, that are commonly used to pay ransoms; and visited the pyrotechnic team behind the explosive Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson World Tour.

The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat.
