In the beginning we are introduced to Gavin Daly, a five-year-old boy sleeping in his parents’ Brooklyn apartment when some men enter, shoot and kill his mother, and abduct his father, after which Daly and his sister are taken to the British Isles by their aunt. The tale opens ninety years after these acts took place in this latest D.S. Roy Grace procedural in Brighton, England. Now violence again occurs when the 92-year-old sister’s home is invaded, she is killed, about 2 million pounds worth of antiques are stolen, and, more importantly, a valuable watch, practically the only remembrance of their father, is removed from a secret compartment in her safe. Daly tells Roy he cares less about the antiques, but he wants the watch back. Thus begins an extensive investigation by Roy and his team, paralleled by one conducted by Daly and his son, Lucas. It leads to some intriguing developments, as the perpetrators turn up either murdered or beaten. Two incidental themes intertwine the plot: Roy is now married to his present love, Cleo, after his ex-wife’s disappearance more than ten years earlier, and they have a new baby boy, but the fate of his ex remains a conundrum; and a particularly nasty man Roy had sent to a long term in prison is released, vowing to take revenge. Written in a lively manner in the author’s trademark short chapters, the story moves back and forth between and among the characters, which are thoroughly developed. The plot is clever, and once again, Brighton provides an appealing backdrop to the story, supplemented by the streets of New York City, which sets the stage for both the beginning and end of the book. Recommended.

However abit disappointed with the backstory of Roy Grace . Thought there would be more development with his wife sandy . However the front story was excellent and breezed through with eager anticipation. Hopefully next book will be out soon as i am hooked on this series!!

The Roy Grace series is one of the best. The way the charactors and locations are intertwined make this series a realistic feel.
