About the book

Peter James, the number one, multi-million copy bestselling author of the Grace series returns with a standalone novel with a difference.

Some will know how it begins . . .

Her name is Sandy. You might know her as the loving wife of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace.

But there's more to her than meets the eye. A woman with a dubious past, a complicated present and
an uncertain future. Then she was gone.

Some will think they know how it ends . . .

Her disappearance caused a nationwide search. Even the best detective on the force couldn't find her.
They thought she was dead.

But nobody knows this . . .

Where did she go? Why did she run? What would cause a woman to leave her whole life behind and
simply vanish?

For the first time, the number one, multi-million copy bestselling author Peter James reveals the
truth behind Sandy Grace’s dramatic disappearance. They thought I Was Dead will thrill fans
and new readers alike with its gripping story of a woman on the run. This is Sandy's story.
