Fictional Brighton sleuth Roy Grace looks likely to become a telly detective.

Author Peter James wrote in The Mail on Sunday today: “One aspect of the success of my Roy Grace novels I’m really enjoying is that it’s giving me the chance to give something back to a place that I love so much.

“I’m often asked when we’ll see Grace as a television series.

“This should happen soon and it will be set in Brighton.”

James, 61, a former film producer, shared the news in a travel piece for the newspaper.

In it, the Brighton-born author described the town as “an almost perfect criminal environment”, although he praised the way that it is policed.

James, who lives near Ditchling, has penned a sixth book about Detective Superintendent Grace.

Dead Like You is due to be published on Wednesday 2 June.
