An Evening With Peter James

Peter James is one of Britains most popular authors, clocking-up more than 18 million sales of his Roy Grace crime thrillers.

And that is fact, not fiction.

Like the much-admired Detective Superintendent character he created, the author is Brighton-based.

But James is Perth-bound to provide an advance glimpse of the latest novel destined to top the Sunday Times best sellers list, having seen off “50 Shades of Grey” and “The Girl on the Train” in recent years to claim the top spot. If it makes number one, it will be 12 in a row for the prolific author.

He is taking-up a Culture Perth and Kinross invitation to talk about his life and eagerly awaited “Need You Dead” hardback during an “Evening With Peter James” being held at St John’s Kirk on Monday, April 24.

It is the 13th novel featuring DI Grace, who is tasked with spearheading the team investigating the apparent suicide, or murder, of a domestic violence victim in a seedy flat in the south coast town.

James has garnered a string of awards, including “The Best Crime Author of All Time” accolade bestowed by WH Smith readers two years ago.

But a fascinating evening won’t be confided to his writing, as he enjoys an impressive track record as a Hollywood film producer, with the CV including “The Merchant of Venice,” starring Al Pacino.

“An Evening with Peter James” is being held by Culture Perth and Kinross at St John’s Kirk on Monday, April 24 from 7pm.

Advance tickets, priced £8, are available from the AK Bell Library, Waterstone’s in Perth and on-line from Eventbrite. Peter’s latest hardback “Need You Dead” is published on May 18 by Pan Macmillan, priced £20.
