    One thought on “Dead Man's Time”

    1. In number 9 in the Roy Grace series, Peter James does it again. This is such an enjoyable series.easy to read, complex but (mostly) believable plots, and good character development. This time we travel back in time to an incident in 1922 NYC that will play the major part in the present day case that DS Roy Grace and his team are investigating. A wealthy aged woman is killed and her valuable art collection is stolen. Among the missing items is a rare vintage watch that belonged to her father who [...]

    2. 1922 – Na de gruwelijke moord op hun moeder en de verdwijning van hun vader verlaten Gavin en Aileen Daly samen met hun tante Oonagh de Verenigde Staten en reizen naar Ierland om er een nieuw leven te beginnen.2012 – In Bristol wordt de woning van de achtennegentig jarige Aileen McWirther door twee mannen overvallen. Zij gaan ervan door met een groot aantal kostbare kunstwerken waaronder een uiterst zeldzaam Patek Philippe horloge uit 1910, dat miljoenen dollars waard is. Aileen wordt tijden [...]

    3. 3.5/5 Peter James's latest book Dead Man's Time is the ninth entry in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series.I had read the first four or five books in this series, but hadn't picked up one lately.Dead Man's Time opens with a scene from 1922 - a scared young boy is witness to his mother's death and his father's disappearance in New York. The only thing left to him is his father's broken watch and a list of names and numbers. Fast forward to 2012 England. The boy is now ninety five. That s [...]

    4. Over the past two weeks I have reacquainted myself with Roy Grace by reading books three to eight in those weeks. I hated myself for leaving it so long between book two and three but loved it because it meant I could read all the books without a years wait in between. I finished Not Dead Yet at 23.50 last night (June 5th), and started this book just after midnight on my Kindle. Needless to say nothing got done today while I devoured this book, and I think it could be his best yet. I am now just [...]

    5. As always a very good read although I am getting a little tired of the 'Sarah' situation and would appreciate it if Mr James would conclude it sometime soon!

    6. , Peter James and Roy Grace, where do I begin? I have read all of the books in this series and am normally gripped by each and every book I read. When I read the synopsis for this one I really wasn’t sure. I was (as usual) to be proved wrong. This latest Roy Grace novel starts out with a vicious robbery at a Brighton Mansion and millions of pounds worth of antiques taken. It also leaves an elderly woman, Aileen McWhirter, fighting for her life. Roy Grace and his team lead the enquiry when the [...]

    7. Dit is weer zo'n heerlijk boek van Peter James. Deel 9 in de Roy Grace serie. Zo als altijd heb ik er van genoten.

    8. Dit boek is beter dan het eerste boek van de serie. Het is een interessant verhaal en het plot zit goed in elkaar. Soms mist het verhaal wat spanning. Toch is het mysterie interessant genoeg om door te lezen. Ik heb de tussenliggende delen niet gelezen. Toch vond ik dat niet storend. Het boek is prima los te lezen. Ik ben wel nieuwsgierig naar de ontwikkelingen van Roy’s verdwenen vrouw. Hetgeen voor mij een reden zou zijn om een volgend deel ook te lezen. Nu dit boek mij beter is bevallen dan [...]

    9. Dit was het eerste boek wat ik las van Peter James. Doodsklok is het negende deel uit de Roy Grace-serie, maar ik heb dat aan niets kunnen merken.De auteur heeft geen oude koeien uit de sloot hoeven halen om ons een prettig leesbaar verhaal aan te bieden. Hoognodige informatie wordt op een prettige manier verwerkt zonder storend te zijn.De hoofdpersoon, Roy Grace is een mens van vlees en bloed geworden. Een aardig mens zelfs.Een kundige rechercheur, die zijn uiterste best doet om de zaak op te l [...]

    10. Brooklyn 1922, three men break into a house and kill the mother of 5 year old Gavin and 8 year old Aileen Daly. They also kidnap their father is is never to be seen again. An aunt then takes custody of them and they move to Ireland. In 2012 in Brighton, Aileen's house is broken into. She is savagely beaten and millions of pounds worth of antiques are stolen. Also, taken was a pocket watch with tremendous sentimental value. Roy Grace is assigned the case. However, Aileen's brother Gavin also star [...]

    11. I’ve often said that I don’t really read series – Nicci French’s Frieda Klein books are one exception, and this series is the other. This is the ninth in the series, where the basic storyline involves a robbery and its aftermath, focused on a single valuable item prized by the family above all the others. The story moves from Brighton, across Europe to the New York gangland of the 1920s, and it is as thoroughly gripping as every other book has been. But the real strength of this series i [...]

    12. I think Peter James has a great series here and a great detective in Roy Grace, it has been a while since I have returned to the cobbled streets of Brighton to see just what are Roy is getting up to! I believe the thing about a detective series is that you should not read the complete run of booksbut have a break and return and you will find that your time away and your return is very pleasant :) This is a story that crosses time from New York in the 1920's to the present and I thought it was ex [...]

    13. It was an easy read, not demanding, I worked out a lot of it early on. The author seemed to be obsessed with describing what each character wore! ( Yes, really! right down to the shoes they wore!) He described a woman has having a 'catwalk figure'! There was more about what the various character wore but not much about their personalities, apart from Gavin Day's story not really much about the backgrounds of the characters who all seemed to be either good or bad - no shades of grey here! There w [...]

    14. The 9th book in the Roy Grace series by the excellent Peter James. I love this authors work and unfortunately I have now caught up with this series and eagerly await the release of his next book. In these books if read in order contain lots of sub plots that continue throughout the series supplying you with just enough information to keep them interesting. For anyone who has not yet started this series I would recommend they read them in order to get the best from Peter James work.

    15. I do like this series. I'm not a major fan of UK based crime (Billingham and Rankin apart), but I do enjoy these stories of the Brighton based cop and his sidekicks. This tale involving stolen antiques and Irish gangs of long ago is one of the best and well worth catching. I also like the background story, that's ticked along all through this series, of the missing wife of our hero Detective Roy Grace. Top class stuff.

    16. Thank God the story was great, but I'm dropping a star because this new narrator didn't really work at all - after 8 books in a series we've gotten used to how each character sounds, so it was horrible to hear them all with different voices. Very annoying.

    17. What can I say? This is #9 in a series that I really like, and I already have the next book lined up ready to go. Peter James is consistently good.

    18. Right up there with the best. zips along at an astonishing rate loved it loved loved it. A terrific story with a twist in the tale. read it and enjoy

    19. I was really hoping not to give this one star. I wanted one star to be reserved for the life-changingly awful likes of The Alchemist. But there's just no way of getting around it, this book was utterly terrible.Things got off to a bad start when we were informed the police officers were "on a shout - as calls to incidents were known colloquially". Gosh really? Thanks for that. Having never read or seen any police related documentary or fiction in my life, and lacking all ability to make a basic [...]

    20. A very good Roy Grace mystery. The story starts in Brooklyn, New York in 1922 when a brother and sister are orphaned. Taken to Ireland by an Aunt, the children make a success of their lives in the antiques trade and live comfortably in the Brighton Sussex area. Now in their seventies the sister is tortured and dies with millions of pounds worth of antiques stolen along with a valuable pocket watch. Inevitably villains fall out and various factions try to cancel out each other. Added to this is s [...]

    21. Right, time for a startling confession. I have to date only read one Peter James book- shame on me. So when I was approached to read and review Dead Man’s Time I was looking forward to the opportunity of re-entering D.I. Roy Grace’s world albeit with a seven book hiatus. In a way this has worked in my favour as I cannot have been said to be influenced by the other books, nor can this give me cause to compare this one to its predecessors in terms of style and character development, so it was [...]

    22. Darum geht’s:Aileen und Gavin verlieren ihre Eltern bei einem grausamen Verbrechen in New York und müssen mit der Tante nach England ziehen. 90 Jahre später wird bei Aileen eingebrochen und die alte Dame gefoltert und ermordet. Obwohl ihr viele Kunstschätze gestohlen werden, will ihr Bruder Gavin nur ein Stück zurück: Die Taschenuhr ihres Vaters, das einzige Erinnerungsstück, das die Geschwister hatten.So fand ich’s:Um die Uhr wiederzubekommen, kennt Gavin Daly keine Skrupel und lässt [...]

    23. This book starts with a short prologue set in 1920's New York City. A very young brother and sister are spared after their mother is shot and their father kidnapped. Their father was associated with an Irish gang and it's likely he's been killed. The children are taken to back to Ireland by their aunt, but before they board the ship, someone gives the young boy his father’s pocket watch and a series of numbers. He vows to return one day and find his father. Fast forward about 85 years and DS R [...]

    24. Certainly the best one so far! The ninth in the Roy Grace series, this is a cracking read of a book and a great page turner. I had been meaning to get around to starting this series, after I had the pleasure of getting to know Peter after doing a number of events at a central London bookshop I worked in and I really wish I started earlier. Police/crime etc is not really my sort of read but out of loyalty I gave it a go and surprised myself and everyone around me when I couldnt put it down. In th [...]

    25. Wie bisher jeder Krimi über Detetctive Superintendet Roy Grace spannend, nicht nur die (Mord)geschichte selbst, sondern auch wie sich sein Privatleben entwickelt. Nun ist er Papa, sehr besorgt um sein Baby, dessen Leben von einem der früher von Grace verhafteten Missetäter gefährdet wird. Und der rote Faden - die Ehefrau vor 10 Jahren verschwunden, er hat sie inzwischen für tot erklären lassen - bleibt wie immer spannend. Denn der Leser weiß: Sandy lebt. Die Frage ist nur: gibt sie ihm da [...]

    26. By far my least favourite and this felt as though it was written because the publishers were chomping at the bit rather than for the love of the writing. Once again an arbitrary American connection that didn't need to exist except for the opportunity to fly key characters over there and be able to describe New York in the same level of detail as James' beloved Brighton. This shameless attempt at widening the geographical catchment of readers is so transparent it is untrue. The story was clunky a [...]

    27. It’s been quite a while since I read a Peter James novel, so I was quite happy to receive an ARC of Dead Man’s Time, the ninth in the Roy Grace series. On the plus side, it’s an enjoyable enough read, with a fairly complex plot that weaves an interesting tale. James clearly knows his police procedures and the cop side of the story has the feel of authenticity. The family and criminal sides of the story, however, felt uneven and overly contrived. The whole Amis Smallbone subplot, for exampl [...]

    28. It was great to be back with this series and I galloped through this book. An interesting story which had much of its root cause in incidents that happened in Brooklyn ninety years before when a mother was murdered and a father was abducted. Towards the last 100 pages I could not put it down and despite having work the next morning had to read on past midnight to get to the resolution of the book. I do love this series, which is set in Brighton (on the south coast of England) and a good group of [...]
