Peter James is the king of thrillers, a winner of the Diamond Dagger who has topped the Sunday Times charts 13 times and sold 19 million copies of his books. He’s a major figure in Sussex, thanks to his connections with the police in Brighton that led to the creation of the detective Roy Grace. He really knows how to tell a story, so I’m thrilled that he loves The Light Keeper in this way. My novel is not a crime story as such, it’s more of a literary thriller shot through with romance, but I hope it moves with the pace of one of Peter’s books. The Light Keeper comes out in August but you can sign up here for an exclusive preview of the first three chapters, plus the chance to win a night in the real lighthouse at the centre of the story, on the edge of a four hundred foot drop.
