From Publishers Weekly

British author James's far-fetched but terrifying thriller is the first of a new series featuring Det. Supt. Roy Grace. Michael Harrison, a successful real estate developer with a penchant for practical jokes, gets a horrible taste of his own medicine. As a prank, four of his friends bury Michael alive in a coffin equipped with a breathing tube and a bottle of whiskey and leave him, ostensibly for a couple of hours. But when their van crashes head-on into a truck and three of them are killed (the fourth dies later "in hospital"), Michael is trapped. His cell phone doesn't work, but he does have a two-way radio whose companion is in the hands of Davey, a mentally challenged young man who finds the phone near the scene of the accident. Grace, a detective with a taste for the supernatural (he uses mediums to help him solve crimes), gets on the case and discovers just how devious Michael's friends have been. The "buried alive" trope is undeniably powerful, and Grace shows promise as a hero—but the crime and the plot surrounding Michael's plight are just too cumbersome and transparent to really engage the reader.

James, the executive producer of the recent film adaptation of The Merchant of Venice, brings his filmic talent to a suspense tale that is almost excruciatingly easy to visualize. His opening premise is startlingly simple, that of the trickster tricked. Four friends celebrate one of their members' impending marriage by embarking on a pub crawl through several Sussex villages. What the groom-to-be doesn't realize is that his pals plan to play a payback prank on him by burying him alive (with a breathing tube and a walkie-talkie) for a couple hours. They leave the scene and are killed by an oncoming vehicle. Enter Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, assigned to investigate the missing-bridegroom case. Grace finds the case difficult, both because of the dearth of clues and because of his own wife's disappearance some years before. Achingly well plotted, with suspense that has no letup. Connie Fletcher

très bon thriller, scénario bien ficelé, bien écrit sans temps mort ni digressions inutiles. le "héro" est attachant et j'ai beaucoup aimé l'atmosphère très britannique actuelle.

Again, I’ve run out of new science fiction so I decided to try one of my wife’s favourite detective thriller authors. This is the first book in the James’ Roy Grace series and it is brilliant! The plot twists & turns all over the place and it piles along at a breakneck pace before coming to a most satisfactory conclusion. It is evident that the author takes his craft very seriously; the characters are well drawn and plausible, the police procedural stuff seems very well observed and his knowledge of Brighton and its surroundings gives the novel atmosphere and a real sense of place. The only very slight criticism is the occasional American’ism (e.g. flashlight) grates a bit but this by no means detracts from the quality of the writing. Cracking stuff – I’ll definitely be reading another once I’ve gobbled up the next consignment of sci-fi.

They don't get much better than this. In fact, the suspense of the first half may be too intense for some readers, but the surprising twists that occur should keep most everyone reading rapidly to the end, despite the suspicion that there's maybe just one twist too many in the final chapters. Also recommended: the second book in this series, "Looking Good Dead." It contains a few references to the first book and has some of the same team of investigators but can with satisfaction be read on its own.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 First in the Series 17 janvier 2011

A get-even prank on the stag night before his wedding has Michael Harrison, a wealthy property developer, buried alive in a coffin and fighting for his life as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace leads the search for the missing young man.

Despite the bride-to-be's displays of grief and concern, Grace has a gut feeling she isn't being entirely truthful with him.

James' interest in the paranormal is brought in early on and there's a car chase, if you like those things. Overall, it's an okay thriller. This was the first in the author's Roy Grace series and it's an excellent place to start if you haven't read any of the others. Just when you think you know where the story is going, James adds another twist that will have you scratching your head and turning pages to see what comes next.

Couldn't put it down. My only regret is that the author's previous novels are not available on Kindle.
A friend recommended this book saying she couldn't put it down. Thought she was exagerating, but she wasn't!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping! 25 mars 2006
Par L. J. Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a book one should start with plenty of time to finish it in one sitting. Gripping is the word which comes to mind. James' background as a screenwriter and producer are evident in his ability to create strong characters and relationships, his ear for dialogue, and the pacing of the story. James' previous books look to be more in the horror or psychological suspense category, where this is a solid police procedural. My one slight criticism is the authors years in Los Angeles show as I kept having to remind myself the book is set in England; the style is more American than British. But the good news is this is the first in a series. The second book, "Looking Good Dead," is due out soon and is on my "must buy" list.
