This month we're delighted to welcome Peter James as our guest speaker. Peter is an international best-selling crime thriller novelist, and has had 11 consecutive Sunday Times Number Ones, published in 37 languages, as well as being a New York Times bestseller. His Detective Superintendent Roy Grace crime novels have sold 18 million copies worldwide.
His novels have won numerous awards, most recently the coveted 2016 CWA Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence, and he was publicly voted by W H Smith readers The Best Crime Author Of All Time. The thirteenth novel in the award-winning Detective Superintendent Roy Grace crime series, Need You Dead, will be published in May this year.
Graham Bartlett will be joining us to tell us about the work of Sussex Crimestoppers. Information relating to crimes of all types is regularly passed from Crimestoppers to Sussex Police, helping to solve crime and make Sussex a safer place. They receive no central funding and have to raise funds for their work within the community so we will have a £10 collection during the lunch for those who wish to contribute.
