Dead if You Don't


A PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE IS GRACE'S DEADLIEST CASE . . .


Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award winning author Peter James, faces his most complex case yet in Dead If You Don't.


Kipp Brown, successful businessman and compulsive gambler, is having the worst run of luck of his life. He’s beginning to lose, big style. However, taking his teenage son, Mungo, to their club’s Saturday afternoon football match should have given him a welcome respite, if only for a few hours. But it’s at the stadium where his nightmare begins.


Within minutes of arriving at the game, Kipp bumps into a client. He takes his eye off Mungo for a few moments, and in that time, the boy disappears. Then he gets the terrifying message that someone has his child, and to get him back alive, Kipp will have to pay.


Defying instruction not to contact the police, Kipp reluctantly does just that, and Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is brought in to investigate. At first it seems a straightforward case of kidnap. But rapidly Grace finds himself entering a dark, criminal underbelly of the city, where the rules are different and nothing is what it seems . . .



Alchemist

He had some misgivings about their company ethics - but ultimately, he needs their money, and they need his mind. Then a journalist comes to Monty's door, with a far-fetched story about the pharmaceutical company. She doesn't believe what she's being told for a moment - but within a few short weeks, events are making the apparently fantastic claims look horrifyingly like the truth.Behind the respectable facade of the multi-national company which calls itself the 'World's Most Caring Company' lies an outrage against the whole human race...'Peter James is getting better with every book.'

Absolute Proof


'Sensational – the best what-if thriller since The Da Vinci Code' Lee ChildFrom the number one bestselling author, Peter James, comes an explosive standalone thriller for fans of Dan Brown that will grip you and won't let go until the very last page.Investigative reporter Ross Hunter nearly didn’t answer the phone call that would change his life – and possibly the world – for ever.‘I’d just like to assure you I’m not a nutcase, Mr Hunter. My name is Dr Harry F. Cook. I know this is going to sound strange, but I’ve recently been given absolute proof of God’s existence – and I’ve been advised there is a writer, a respected journalist called Ross Hunter, who could help me to get taken seriously.’ What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences? This question and its answer lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from bestselling author Peter James. 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. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence . . .


Dead Letter Drop


Featuring a special introduction by Peter James, Dead Letter Drop is Peter James' first ever novel, originally published in 1981. Max Flynn, undercover agent, has the unenviable job of spying on his own side. When to kill, who to kill, whether to kill are all questions which have to be answered at great speed if he wants to stay alive. But why does an innocuous airline ticket No. 14B matter so much? Who has gone to the trouble of committing suicide? And could Flynn's beautiful companion be a spy? The hazy, murky world of counter espionage leaves no room for errors of judgement and Flynn knows he's finished if he makes one false move.


Twilight


Sally Donaldson is twenty-three years old and six months pregnant when her life suddenly ends. Her devastated husband, Kevin, is willing to grasp at any straw; when sounds are reported coming from the grave, he demands an exhumation. Reporter Kate Hemingway sneaks into the suburban graveyard to see the coffin opened. An American living in England, she is trying to get over a painful love affair - and to break her way out of traffic death and human interest stories. What Kate sees is so horrific that she can't - and won't - forget it. Fighting off pressure from the medical establishment, she plunges into the middle of a sinister and macabre cover-up. At its center is a respected anesthetist with a dangerous and secret obsession with life after death.


Christmas is for the Kids


It was Christmas Eve when Kate saw the young boy, struggling to hold the groceries in the supermarket. When she offers to give him a lift, it isn't long before his sadness hints at a deeper tragedy. What happened that Christmas at the Hogarth place? And can Kate make this Christmas better for him and his family? Featuring the first two chapters of Peter James's latest chilling novel, Perfect People.It was Christmas Eve when Kate saw the young boy, struggling to hold the groceries in the supermarket.

Dreamer

The last night that Sam had the dream, she was seven years old; and that was the night her parents were to die.

Twenty five years later her childhood is but a bad memory. Now married to a wealthy Eurobond dealer, she has a child, two homes and a highly successful career. An enviable lifestyle. But for Sam it is becoming a nightmare. Because the childhood dreams are returning - and this time they are coming true...

Gradually and subtly, the dreams of the night foretell the disasters of the day - and no-one believes her, nothing can help her. As psychiatrists, clairvoyants and dream therapy fail her, she is left to confront the evil alone, without knowing its name: hallucination, premonition, reincarnation or psychic projection? Whatever it is, it won't relinquish its hold. And then Sam starts dreaming her own death...


Host

From Publishers Weekly

In his first techno-thriller, James tackles the issue of life after death, just as he did in his horror novels Twilight and Possession. This time, though, the author's fervid imagination?which here mixes the cryonic preservation of human life, the downloading of human personalities into a computer and a Fatal Attraction-style love affair?creates only a muddle. Neuroscientist Joe Messenger, of England's Isaac Newton University, has inherited his father's belief in, and passion for, cryonic preservation; he has also constructed a computer dubbed ARCHIVE, designed to eventually store the contents of an adult human brain. This goal seems far beyond reach until Joe meets the seductive Juliet Spring, who shows him how it can be done. But Juliet has an ulterior motive?she has six months to live, and wants her own personality digitized before she dies. When she does die, and ARCHIVE takes on her chillingly psychotic characteristics, the reader will be miles ahead of most of the characters in figuring out what's going on. The only real surprise involves the cryonics subplot, which is a needless complication, giving the impression that this novel consists of two books forced between the same covers. In addition, by pacing revelations slowly to accommodate his well-drawn but amazingly obtuse characters, James risks losing readers' interest. Despite an intriguing premise and some genuine scares, this is yet another novel in which less would have been more.

From Library Journal

Computer professor Joe Messenger is carrying on the work of his late father in attempting to extend the human lifespan through cryonics and artificial intelligence. He agrees to advise a brilliant, terminally ill student, Juliet Spring, who seems obsessed with both eternal life and Joe himself. After a highly charged affair, Juliet dies. However, she has loaded her consciousness into ARCHIVE, a computer that seems almost eerily human. James (Twilight, LJ 2/15/93) has produced a fascinating technothriller that explores the downside of scientific breakthrough. An appealing protagonist up against some very unsettling events propels this cautionary tale for the millennium that will appeal to a wide audience. Definitely recommended for most fiction collections.?Eric W. Johnson, Teikyo Post Univ. Lib., Waterbury, Ct.
