Publisher's Summary

Dead Man's Footsteps is the fourth novel in the multi-million copy best-selling Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series, from number one Author Peter James.

From the ashes of mass destruction....

Amid the tragic unfolding mayhem of the morning of 9/11, failed Brighton businessman and ne'er-do-well Ronnie Wilson sees the chance of a lifeline: to shed his debts, disappear and reinvent himself in another country. Six years later the discovery of the skeletal remains of a woman's body in a storm drain in Brighton leads Detective Superintendent Roy Grace on an enquiry spanning the globe, and into a desperate race against time to save the life of a woman being hunted down like an animal in the streets and alleys of Brighton.

Dead Man's Footsteps

Oh my word, now finished the 4th Roy Grace book and I am totally hooked! I love the characters and the murders are not predictable. There is always a little bit of humor as well. So glad I started listening to this series. The narration is perfect!

Still confused even though I've finished the book!

Listened to this as I'd listened rest to rest of series so far.
Found this very confusing.
Got to end and I'm still confused who characters are. It might be me!
Also some bits throughout made no sense.
At one point a girl had gone into police station, then she was on a train, then back at police station.
I've tried listening to full version of these books but they drag on for ages with very little action.
The abridged version though seems to miss out important bits.
I'm done with this now, I'm not buying any more of this series.
Neil Pearson however is excellent as narrator. Really enjoyed listening to him.
