In Dead Man's Time, the latest from international bestselling author Peter James, Roy Grace finds himself up against that most dangerous of all adversaries―a man with fury in his heart who has nothing to lose.

New York, 1922. Five-year-old Gavin Daly and his seven-year-old sister, Aileen, are boarding the SS Mauretania to Dublin―and safety. Their mother has been shot and their Irish mobster father abducted. Suddenly, a messenger hands Gavin a piece of paper on which are written four names and eleven numbers, a cryptic message that will haunt him all his life, and his father's pocket watch. As the ship sails, Gavin watches Manhattan fade into the dusk and makes a promise, that one day he will return and find his father.
Brighton, 2012. Detective Superintendent Roy Grace investigates a savage burglary in Brighton, in which an old lady is murdered and £10m of antiques have been taken, including a rare vintage watch. To Grace's surprise, the antiques are unimportant to her family―it is the watch they want back. As his investigation probes deeper, he realizes he has kicked over a hornets nest of new and ancient hatreds. At its heart is one man, Gavin Daly, the dead woman's ninety-five-year-old brother. He has a score to settle and a promise to keep―both of which lead to a murderous trail linking the antiques world of Brighton, the crime fraternity of Spain's Marbella, and New York.

Roy Grace, in a race against the clock to stop another killing, has met his most dangerous adversary yet.

From Booklist:

Brendan Daly, a member of the Irish White Hand gang, which ran the waterfront in Manhattan and Brooklyn during the 1920s, disappeared when his son, Gavin, was five, leaving Gavin with three things: a revolver, a cracked pocket watch, and a list of names and numbers. Despite a successful career in the antique business, Gavin, now 95, has always dreamed of solving his pa’s disappearance. When Gavin’s beloved older sister is tortured to death and the pocket watch—now extremely valuable—is stolen, Gavin calls on his contacts in the antique business to help recover the watch and avenge his sister, even as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace of the Sussex Police is following a similar trail. While Grace’s investigation is littered with bodies, his home seems idyllic: memories of his wife, Sandy, who disappeared years ago, are less painful, and loving partner Cleo and their infant son light up his life. That’s about to change, however, thanks to an ex-con out for revenge. Another strong entry in acclaimed British crime novelist James popular series. --Stephanie Zvirin
