Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is confronting yet more ruthless criminals in the latest instalment of crime writer Peter James’s hugely popular thriller series.
Peter, who has shown National Numeracy great support, said previously:
“I think maths skills and confidence are massively important. We’re constantly having to make decisions around maths. If you’re eating at a new restaurant you want to work out how far it is from you and how long it’s going to take to get there. And of course you look at the menu and the price of things and then it says 15% service.
“We are having to work out stuff constantly. If you go shopping in the sales and something is 20% off you have to work out the full price. We use numeracy in pretty much everything we do all the time.”
