ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The world of Sussex Police is central to my Roy Grace series of novels, and I am indebted to the many officers and support staff there who make me so welcome and give me so much help. At the top of the list is Chief Constable Joe Edwards for his very kind sanction. Totally indispensable is my wise, good friend, retired Chief Superintendent Dave Gaylor, who has been my mentor within Sussex Police for many years, as well as my inspiration for the character of Roy Grace. He is my chief researcher, a font of creative ideas, and has the patience of a saint, helping me in so many ways on this novel, as on the previous ones. It would have been a considerably lesser book without him.

To single out a few other names in particular – and please forgive omissions – Chief Superintendent Kevin Moore has been incredibly supportive, and High Tech Crime Investigator Ray Packham of the High Tech Crime Unit and his wife, Jen, have been brilliantly helpful and inventive with their ideas. I’ve had a quite exceptional amount of help in understanding the current state of Brighton’s lowlife – and the policing of it – from Constable Paul Grzegorzek of the Local Support Team. And also Sergeant Julian Clapp, who sent more than a few shivers through me when walking me through the custody process, and Inspector Mark Powles of the Sussex Police Force Identification Unit.

I want to thank Detective Inspector Roy Apps, Detective Inspector Paul Furnell, PC Matt Webster, Inspector Andy Parr, Sergeant Mark Baker, Chief Superintendent Peter Coll; Sergeant Phil Taylor, Head of the High Tech Crime Unit, and John Shaw, formerly of the High Tech Crime Unit, now at Control Risks Group; Julie Page of the PNC; Detective Sergeant Keith Hallet of the Sussex Police Holmes Unit; Brian Cook, Scientific Support Branch Manager; Detective Inspector William Warner; Senior Scenes of Crime Investigator Stuart Leonard; Senior Analyst Suzy Straughan; DS Jason Tingley; Family Liaison Officers DC Amanda Stroud and DS Louise Pye; and a very special mention to Senior Support Officer Tony Case of the HQ Criminal Investigation Department, who has been incredibly generous with his time, help and enthusiasm.

Huge thanks are also due to my fantastic Munich team of helpers: Kriminalhauptkommisar Walter Dufter, Ludwig Waldinger and Detlef ‘Ted’ Puchelt of Bayerisches Landeskriminalamt, Franz-Joseph Wilfling, Kriminaloberrat at Kriminalpolizeidirektion 1 München; Andy and Sabine from Krimifestival München; Anette Lippert for all her hard work with the Munich geography for me; and, of course, the Greatest Living German Actor, Hans Jürgen Stockeri, for his enduring patience in driving me to every landmark in Munich at least ten times in search of locations for scenes.

I’ve had great help from Essex Coroner Dr Peter Dean, consultant pathologist Dr Nigel Kirkham and Home Office Pathologist Dr Vesna Djurovic. And from Dr Robert Dorion, Director of Forensic Dentistry at the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale, Montreal, and author of the definitive ‘Bitemark Evidence’. And I owe a massive thanks to my wonderful friends at Brighton and Hove Mortuary, Elsie Sweetman, Victor Sinden and Sean Didcott, for their endless patience with me and their immense kindness and thoughtfulness.

Thanks also to Brian Ellis, Dr Andrew Davey, Dr Jonathan Pash, Tom Farrer, Pathology Technician, and Robert Frankis – one of the few people to have caught me out on cars . . . And thanks to Peter Bailey for his encyclopedic knowledge of Brighton modern and past, and the railway network. And I really owe a very special thank you to Post Adoption Counsellor Chrissie Franklin, who helped me energetically and enthusiastically in so many ways in very difficult terrain.

Thanks as ever to Chris Webb, who keeps my computer working and my back-ups safe, and a massive thanks for my unofficial editors, Imogen Lloyd-Webber, Anna-Lisa Lindeblad and Sue Ansell, who read the manuscript in varying stages and provided me with invaluable input. And thanks also to the hard work of the team at Midas Public Relations, Tony Mulliken, Margot Veale and Amelia Rowland.

I count my blessings to be represented by my fabulous book agent, Carole Blake – and I’m honoured that I help to keep her in a few of her three gazillion pairs of designer shoes! – and my film agent, Julian Friedmann. And I consider it a very great privilege to be published by Macmillan. To single out a few names, thank you Richard Charkin, David North, Geoff Duffield, Anna Stockbridge, Vivienne Nelson, Marie Slocombe, Michelle Taylor, Caitriona Row, Claire Byrne, Ali Muirden, Richard Evans, Chloe Brighton, Liz Cowen, my copyeditor Lesley Levene, and last, but most important of all, Stef Bierwerth – you just keep on getting more and more wonderful! And across the Channel I have to say again a massive Danke! to the team at my German publishers, Scherz, for their incredible support. Especially Peter Lohmann, Julia Schade, Andrea Engen, Cordelia Borchardt, Bruno Back, Indra Heinz and the quite awesome Andrea Diederichs, the Greatest Living German Editor!
