A Fair Cop

A new police car - with an advert for crime writer Peter James - will soon be patrolling the streets of Sussex, UK.

The Hyundai Getz was sponsored by his publisher, Pan Macmillan, and James and whose Roy Grace novels are set in Brighton.

James has developed a close relationship with the Sussex Police while researching his books and regularly goes out on patrol with them, visits crime scenes and attends post-mortems, so this is an appropriate way of giving something back.

The launch party for his latest novel, Dead Man's Footsteps, sounds fun too, it :
... will be themed around a scene of crime, complete with tape, tent and waiters in sterile white "scene of crime officer" suits.
