Want You Dead named Sainsbury's e-book of the year

Peter James’ Want You Dead (Pan Macmillan) has been named eBooks by Sainsbury’s eBook of the Year 2014.

The award, which aims to let readers decide their stand-out “screen turner” of the year, is in its second year.

Want You Dead was chosen from a longlist of more than 150 titles from a range of genres.

James’ book, the 10th novel in his Brighton-based detective series, was voted the winner by eBooks by Sainsbury’s customers.

James said: “I’m really thrilled to have won this award from such a brilliant retailer. Over the past few years Sainsbury’s has established their books division as a major platform of the book trade. It means a very great deal to me to have won this highly prestigious award, and I believe that the support of Sainsbury’s is an invaluable endorsement of the importance of books and reading to us all.”
