Présentation de l'éditeur

IF HE CAN'T HAVE HER, THEN NOBODY CAN . . . Virtual romance becomes a terrifying obsession in Want You Dead...

Single girl, 29, smouldering redhead, love life that's crashed and burned. Seeks new flame to rekindle her fire. Fun, friendship and - who knows - maybe more?

When Red Westwood meets handsome, charming and rich Bryce Laurent through an online dating agency, there is an instant attraction. But as their love blossoms, the truth about his past, and his dark side, begins to emerge. Everything he has told Red about himself turns out to be a tissue of lies, and her infatuation with him gradually turns to terror.

Within a year, and under police protection, she evicts him from her flat and her life. But Red's nightmare is only just beginning. For Bryce is obsessed with her, and he intends to destroy everything and everyone she has ever known and loved - and then her too . . .

From No. 1 bestselling crime and thriller writer Peter James comes Want You Dead, the 10th book in his multi-million-copy selling crime series featuring the definitive Brighton detective, Roy Grace.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Over the Top, Unbelievable 30 novembre 2014
Par Dianne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I count this as James' 10th novel featuring Roy Grace, Bella, Norma, Glenn, Cleo and company. The series began as a really good police procedural and a good description of continuing characters so that they were not only recognizable - after a year or so between books - but well fleshed out and a pleasure to meet again. The disappearance of Sandy, Roy's wife, has been a common thread throughout, sometimes given only a mention, sometimes a great deal more as for when she reappeared and maliciously caused damage in Brighton and then in this saga when she appears at Roy's wedding. Either James or I have lost the thread of this series, and I believe, after all these installments, I must call it quits. This reeked of Dirty Harry meets British fiction - so many deaths (with no reason), explosions, fires in number way beyond the believable, a villain with superhuman powers, a one-dimensional heroine who whines throughout, must I go on? Without being a spoiler, the Sandy thread is amazingly unsatisfying this time out. I do wonder what Mr. James has in mind; just tidying up everything possible? I do hate to give up on former favorite authors, but I'm afraid I must.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too long to build up and get going 9 décembre 2014

This was my first Peter James read. Although the murder occurred in the first few pages and the reader was witness to it, I was more than half way through reading the book before it captured my interest and by then my enthusiasm had diminished. The first half wallowed in too much detail and repetition. It was pretty unbelievable that a doctor would commit suicide by pouring petrol over himself and flicking on a cigarette lighter (or was it a match?) when other far easier and less painful methods would have been available to him. Nor did he have any reason to suddenly give up on life. Only an extremely inept police force would accept an obviously flawed suicide note as genuine and cast the case aside as suicide. From a reader perspective, I found their ineptitude frustrating. It was only because of a series of clearly related events that the police suddenly wizened up, finally throwing all of their resources and more, including Inspector Grace, at solving the case. By then the book was into its second half. That was when it started to capture my interest. I like Inspector Roy Grace as a character and he helped restore some faith in the capabilities of the British police. But his involvement occurred too late in the book and the story lost momentum for that reason.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great addition to the series...Peter James does not disappoint! 27 juillet 2014
Par RT Twinem - Publié sur Amazon.com

I would recommend that if reading a crime series you should not attempt to read the complete series in one sitting. I have dipped in and out of this excellent Roy Grace/Peter James stories over the last few years and have felt the better for it. This latest 10 in the series is a fast and brilliant read with Roy Grace pitted against the evil Bryce Laurent and his attempts to kill his old flame Red Westwood. We meet and become familiar again with Roy's colleagues.....DI Glenn Branson, DS Bella Moy, Norman Potting, Guy Bachelor. Add to this mix the re emergence of Roy's ex "dead" wife Sandy on Roy's wedding day😄 and a very personal,unexpected death then we have the recipe for a brilliant and great addition to this first class crime series. I look forward to book 11😃😃

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Work Peter 11 août 2014

Another fantastic book by Peter James. Like all of his other Roy Grace books, it got me in from start to finish. Peter has an ability to keep a story building to a climax with a few twists and turns in the middle. He has an incredible ability to make up a story, flesh it out and keep the reader turning the pages. This book has an excellent ending with a bit of a surprise.
My only concern is that the side plot involving Roy's estranged wife Sandy is becoming too protracted and needs to be brought to its climax sooner rather than later. Otherwise do yourself a favour and buy this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 One for fans of the series... 7 janvier 2015
Par FictionFan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
When her new boyfriend is found burned to death on a golf course, Red Westwood can't believe he killed himself. And when a restaurant in the town is torched, Red begins to wonder if her psychopathic ex-boyfriend might be behind it, since it's the restaurant they used to go to together. Bryce isn't the kind of guy who takes being dumped terribly well, it appears, and now he's out to destroy everything and everyone that Red loves...and then perhaps destroy Red herself.

I've only read one Peter James book before, the first one, many years ago, so I really felt as if I was coming to this series for the first time. I'm well aware that James has a massive and loyal following, and in general this book seems to be being well received by them. But, although there are some good things in it, I'm afraid overall I found it rather disappointing.

At a whopping 500 pages, the book is far too long for its fairly uncomplex plot. The amount of repetition becomes tedious within the first fifty or so pages and worsens as the thing drags on. The book is told in the third person, with the viewpoint shifting mainly between Red and Inspector Roy Grace, but with frequent short chapters giving Bryce's perspective. While the whole thing is repetitive, it's Bryce's sections that are the worst. Pretty much every one says the same thing - Bryce isn't happy with Red; he's going to kill everyone, then her; he's obsessed by the sext messages she used to send him, which get repeated with tedious frequency. I got the message the first time - Bryce is mad, bad and dangerous to know.

So the only tension is will he or won't he manage to carry out his nefarious plans before the incompetent police manage to track him down? Sadly, it's the kind of book where you can guess the answer to that question pretty early on. James tries to put another level of tension in by having Bryce decide he'll also murder Roy (Why? No idea! 'Cos he's mad, I guess.) but that kind of tension never really works in an ongoing series, for obvious reasons.

Red is one of these stereotypical female victim-types - you know, where everyone says don't go into the house, but they go in anyway? I think she's supposed to be feisty, but actually she just appears to be pretty thick. Personally by halfway through I had ceased to care whether she lived or died. Bryce is clearly superhuman - he can do everything! He can set fires, make bombs, change his identity at will, pick unpickable locks, shoot crossbows with deadly accuracy, clean a house so thoroughly no DNA traces can be found! The police on the other hand just seem to waffle around doing nothing very much and hoping that somehow they'll find him. The bit about the gait expert who can recognise any villain by the way he walks based purely on his footprints puts Sherlock Holmes to shame (and made me laugh out loud, I fear).

To balance this a bit, the action scenes are written well, particularly the fire scenes. And the sections that relate to Roy's personal and professional lives are very well done - I assume this ongoing story is the main reason his fans stick with him. It's quite easy to pick up the thread of this aspect of the book even if, like me, you're coming to it without having read the earlier ones. Roy is just about to marry Cleo, the mother of his child, and, while Cleo is given no personality, in this one at least, Roy's feelings about her and his child are well written and believable.
In conclusion, I'd think that there's enough about Roy's life in here to keep the interest of people who are fans of the series, but it certainly isn't one that's left me with any real desire to read more. So maybe not the best one to start with for a newcomer.
