Brighton-born Peter James is one of the UK’s most treasured crime and thriller novelists. His award-winning Detective Superintendent Roy Grace crime series has sold 13 million copies worldwide and been translated into 35 languages. The latest book in the series is Want You Dead. The previous, Not Yet Dead was the first book to have knocked the 50 Shades trilogy off the top of the UK paperback bestseller list!
Peter is a strong supporter of Action Medical Research and especially our annual Peter James Golf Classic, which has raised £41,000 over the last four years. He says: “I have been aware of the charity for many years, including their pioneering work contributing to the development of the first polio vaccine. I have a big interest in medicine, often writing about medical themes - particularly in my recent book Perfect People. It’s wonderful to help make a difference on behalf of Action Medical Research who fund research to make sure babies and children feel the real benefits of medicine.”
