Peter James is synonymous when referring to crime fiction. Following the acclaim received by the stage adaptation of A Perfect Murder last year, Dead Simple is the next novel to receive the same treatment (adapted by Shaun McKenna). The book was an overnight sensation and is now a number one best-seller so it was clearly an obvious choice for the producers. Based on James' research, it seems that the vast majority of people fear fear itself. Breaking this down further, the fear of being alone and in this story's case, being buried alive. This is a seemingly universal fear that James experienced head on when writing this book!
