Experienced author of supernatural thrillers turned tack with Dead Simple and began a crime series starring an intriguing character, DS Roy Grace, based in Brighton. It was terrific. Now we have the second, equally terrific. We get to know Roy better as he is faced with a particularly nasty case. Following several strands in short, cliff-hanger sections, the plotting is excellent as tension mounts alarmingly. I was completely gripped, albeit somewhat disturbed by the very unpleasant nature of the crimes. This is excellent stuff, highly recommended.
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace has to solve a disturbing murder whilst protecting an innocent eye witness in Looking Good Dead, by award winning crime author Peter James. When a young woman's body is found butchered in Brighton, Roy Grace cannot help but think of his own missing wife and her unsolved fate. Elsewhere in the city, when Tom Bryce finds a disc left on a train, he simply tries to do the right thing - return it to its owner. But this attempted act of kindness makes him the sole witness to that same vicious murder. Learning that Tom has made a statement to Grace's team, the killers have to act. But when they plan the murder of the Bryce family, it's not just revenge - it's entertainment. Although the Roy Grace novels can be read in any order, Looking Good Dead is the second gripping title in the bestselling series. Enjoy more of the Brighton detective's investigations with Not Dead Enough and Dead Man's Footsteps. Now a major ITV series, Grace, starring John Simm.
