DS Roy Grace Walk 

Based on the very popular detective series by local author Peter James, this walk gives an insight into the people and locations used in Peters first two novels Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead. 

Discover the storylines along the way as we visit the locations which inspired the plots and see how fact and fiction were blended to bring us the character DS Roy Grace and his diverse team as they fight crime in this cosmopolitan city .
