Dead Like You By Peter James
The Metropole Hotel, Brighton. After a heady New Year’s Eve ball, a woman is attacked as she returns to her room. A week later, another woman is assaulted. Both victims’ shoes are taken by the offender . . .
Roy Grace soon realizes that these new cases bear remarkable similarities to an unsolved series of crimes in the city back in 1997. Dubbed ‘Shoe Man’, the perpetrator was believed to have attacked five women before murdering his sixth victim and vanishing. Could this be a copycat, or has Shoe Man resurfaced?
When more women are assaulted, Grace and his team find themselves in a desperate race against the clock to identify and save the life of the new sixth victim . . .
