Dead Man’s Time by Peter James. Read August 2013.

“A vicious robbery at a secluded Brighton mansion leaves its elderly occupant dying, and millions taken in valuables. But, as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, heading the enquiry, rapidly learns, there is one item, of priceless sentimental value, that her powerful family care about, above all else. And they are fully prepared to take the law into their own hands, and do anything, absolutely anything, to get it back.”
The 9th in the Roy Grace series and the best so far. One of those books you couldn’t wait to read but wish you’d read slower so that you had longer to savour it.
The amount of research the author does for each book shines from the pages as he paints a picture of gangland New York in the 1920s and policing in modern day Brighton.
Highly recommended for all crime fiction fans, though I would strongly suggest you read this series in chronological order to enjoy the fascinating back story of its main characters.
