Peter James

I have been aware of Action Medical Research 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. It’s wonderful to help make a difference on behalf of the charity who fund research to make sure babies and children feel the real benefits of medicine.”

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 19 million copies worldwide and been translated into 37 languages. The latest book in the series is Need You Dead, published May 2017. 

His latest Roy Grace novel ‘Dead If You Don’t’ will be out 17 May 2018, and his standalone thriller ‘Absolute Proof’ will be out 4 October 2018.

Peter is a strong supporter of Action Medical Research, previously with the Peter James Golf Classic which helped raise over £60,000, and more recently with the Afternoon Tea with Peter James.
