Peter James sponsors police car

From the Daily Mail:
In the first commercial deal between an author and the police, a £9,000 Hyundai Getz will soon be patrolling the streets of Sussex, embellished on all four sides with the name of Peter James.

His series of Brighton-based Roy Grace novels has sold more than three million copies worldwide and been translated into 30 languages.

Now Mr James and his publishers Pan Macmillan have agreed to sponsor the Brighton and Hove policing division’s new five-door saloon.
