Dead Tomorrow, the fifth novel in Peter James' award-winning Detective Superintendent Roy Grace crime series, now available in eBook. The body of a teenager, dredged from the seabed off the coast of Sussex, is found to be missing its vital organs. Soon two more young bodies are found ... Caitlin Beckett, a fifteen-year-old in Brighton, will die if she does not receive a liver transplant, urgently. When the health system threatens to let her down, Lynn, her mother turns in panic to the internet and discovers a broker who can provide her with a black-market organ - but at a price. Prepared to do whatever it takes, Lynn scrambles to raise the money. A few days later, with Caitlin deteriorating by the hour, the organ broker tells Lynn she has found a perfect match. With his beautiful girlfriend, Cleo, and his recent promotion, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace knows he should finally be feeling positive for the first time since his wife Sandy disappeared, nine years ago. But this new case haunts him, even more than all the others. Following the clues from the bodies, he finds himself on the trail of a gang of child traffickers operating from Eastern Europe. Soon Grace and his team will find themselves in a race against time to save the life of a young street kid, while a desperate mother will stop at nothing to save her daughter's life.

(The fifth book in the Roy Grace series)

I like police procedural stories like Rankin's Rebus and Robinson's Banks. So I liked this book along with other Peter James' Grace books I've read. I'm working my way through the Roy Grace series as I can find them - the stories all seem to happen closely together, even though they have been written over a fairly long time span - so the technology involved in the stories seems to take quantum leaps within less than a fictional elapsed year. Another niggle - they all end like a TV or movie script with a less-than believable action-packed ending - natural enough given Peter James' background.

Not a bad book, even with the unbelievable twist at the end that somehow allowed the conclusion

Another winner from Peter James. Not just a great thriller, but also an insight into how far a mother is willing to go to save her child's life.
