I have been reading Peter James Roy Grace series in order from his first book. This was my least favourite. Plot seemed weak and so much repetition from prior books. I skipped whole sections where he was giving us email content from Red to her ex. After the first few they weren’t worth reading anymore. I am going to give James another chance with the next in the series as I did enjoy his writing up until this point. Hope it is better.

Oh dear. What can I say? Well, actually I can say that this is the last Peter James novel I am going to bother to read. I have read every single one of them so far. The last one was very disappointing. Flimsy characters ridiculous plot. I hoped this one would be better. However - no change. More Flimsy characters and the plot was old and tired. It's been repeated in a hundred other books and films. The narrative was irritating to say the least. I do believe that there was at least one exclamation mark on every page. Short sentences that seemed to be written for the younger reader. Too much detail about police procedure which quite frankly, most people really don't care about, I am sure. I usually skip over those paragraphs because they are really boring. I am getting really bored by the former wife scenario too. It is dragging on and on and gets nowhere. He should bring it to a head, and very soon. Peter James seems to be churning out Roy Grace novels at the rate of one a year. I think he is so desperate to do so, that he rushes through them, because that's how it feels. But still, what do I care? I won't be reading about Roy Grace any more. Time to see if Peter Robinson has written a new book and also Stephen Booth. Both far superior writers of English crime novels. So long, Peter James - shan't be seeing you again.

I wasted an hour of my life reading this nonsense. It appears to be aimed at readers of the National Enquirer or USA Today if you prefer pictures and short paragraphs.

Disappointed with this one. Too repetitive and too many unbelievable "magic" tricks. Branston calling Roy Grace "old timer" became annoying,
Hope for better next time.

I love the Roy Grace series, and always eagerly anticipate the next novel. This one was a great, fast read, but not as good as some of the others.

Disappointed with the last hundred pages, as the author makes the victim too stupid to be believable in order to move the plot forward. I expected better from this author as I very much enjoyed his previous novels.

I don't recall reading the others, all with ' Dead' in the title, in the series about the detective, Roy Grace. Peter James writes well on the theme of stalkers from all points of view. Nasty and just got nastier. Entirely predictable as to characters and plot. A bit too stereotypical for me but has potential for a movie or TV, James has had experience as a script writer.
