I wish I had saved MY money. Didn't like this book from page 1 and found the language offensive.

This is the seventh in the Roy Grace series, detailed police procedurals that take place in the Brighton area of Great Britain. The tightly written plots carry the reader from page to page wondering what comes next. And the nearly overwhelming [in a good way, to be sure!] detail keeps the reader from guessing the next step. This novel begins with the gruesome death of a young man, who defies his mother, the daughter of a mafia don in New York City, to study at a Brighton university and live with his English girlfriend. One day, on the way to school, riding his bike on the wrong side of the road, he is narrowly missed by a car driven by Carly Chase [who swerves onto the sidewalk to avoid him], but is hit by a tailgating white van [which leaves the scene], then rolls under a truck’s wheels and is killed. The plot stems from this incident, with the mother hiring a hit man to torture and murder the three drivers. When two of them are found dead, it behooves Carly to attempt to protect herself and her young son. And thereby hangs a tale, a rather detailed description of the killer’s movements, and the efforts of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace and the entire Sussex police force to capture him. By all means get a copy and read it. Highly recommended.

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace has his hands full with a new baby due and a major investigation underway. This fast paced British police procedural starts with a random traffic accident resulting in the death of a young American man who was struck while riding a bicycle. Three motor vehicles were involved. A car driven by a woman who crashes her car when narrowly avoiding the bicycle. A white van that hits the young man, then speeds away. Lastly a tractor trailer that can't stop before the bicyclist is thrown under it's wheels resulting in the youth's death. A tragic accident, yet it is about to be complicated by the revelation that the youth's family is connected with the mob. The wrath of God would have to take second place to the terrible vengeance that will befall the people involved in this accident. This very good suspense story is told from the viewpoints of all the major participants. I found it very detailed and quite imaginative. The character types, while familiar, are very well handled with some very interesting twists. This book is a follow up to Dead Like You in the Detective Roy Grace series. Book provided by the well read folks at Minotaur Books.

This was a very good read and I would recommend it. Only reason not a 5 star is it seemed to drag in a couple of places.
