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 number one bestselling crime and thriller writer Peter James comes Want You Dead, the tenth 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
Par Kitch - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Vicious Pyromaniac is Determined to Torture and Kill His Ex-Girlfriend in Peter James's Volatile Thriller, "Want You Dead" 2 juin 2015
Par J. B. Hoyos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A pyromaniac is terrorizing Brighton, England. He has many aliases. Red Westwood knows him as Bryce Laurent, a magician and escape artist who is an expert on surveillance equipment and explosives. He is determined to slowly torture and murder his former girlfriend, Red. Thanks to her mom's detective, Red learned that Bryce's entire past is a fabrication. Bryce begins his campaign of terror against Red by burning alive her current boyfriend, Dr. Karl Murphy. Detective Sergeant Roy Grace must locate Bryce before he kills Red and everyone around her.

Agonizing, fiery deaths threaten many characters in Peter James's intense thriller, "Want You Dead" [following "Dead Man's Time" (Dead Man's Time (Detective Superintendent Roy Grace)) and "Not Dead Yet"(Not Dead Yet (Roy Grace series Book 8))]. The residents of Brighton are living in terror of this insane arsonist. Bryce Laurent's targets are not random; they all involve his deadly obsession with his ex-girlfriend, Red. First, he burns down a restaurant, Cuba Libre; Red and he dined there on their first date. Next, he rigs her beloved car, a vintage Volkswagen Beetle, to catch fire. Bryce is insane and ingenious, a horrifyingly deadly combination. If he wants you dead, then most likely you are going to die.

Roy Grace is not the tortured, wounded hero you often find in other mysteries. He is a very successful detective who has risen up through the ranks by means of hard work and dedication. Consequently, his first marriage to Sandy fell apart. She mysteriously disappeared and has recently been declared dead. Now, he will soon be marrying his live-in girlfriend, Cleo Morey, who performs autopsies at Brighton & Hove Mortuary. Unknown to Grace, his wife is still alive. Though Sandy and Bryce don't know each other, both are determined to upset Grace's wedding plans.

There are numerous tense moments in "Want You Dead" when the killer is pursuing Red. She lives to regret having placed a personal ad on the internet. I have always refused to participate in an internet dating service. Years ago, I read Mary Higgins Clark's "Loves Music, Loves to Dance"--a suspenseful mystery in which a serial killer was targeting women who were searching for romance through the classifieds. "Want You Dead" also reminded me of such Hollywood horror classics as "The Fan" (1981) (The Fan), "Fear" (Fear), "Play Misty for Me" (Play Misty for Me - Collector's Edition), and "Fatal Attraction" (Fatal Attraction).

"Want You Dead" has definitely made me swear off internet dating for all time. Through the internet, it is very easy for predators to falsify their identities in order to attract certain types of victims. Pedophiles use the internet to deceive and lure minors. Let this novel serve as a warning for those searching for a dream love. They may find a nightmare in the form of Bryce Laurent, one of the vilest villains I've encountered in literature. He is a sociopathic egomaniac who has no qualms about hurting those around him; in fact, he enjoys human suffering.

Like all of the other Detective Superintendent Roy Grace novels, reading "Want You Dead" was like reading nonfiction. It is packed with medical and police procedures. Peter James provides enough detail about golfing, yachting, firefighting, etc., to convince readers that he has actively participated in them all. James knows how to build suspense with numerous cliffhangers; interwoven subplots; human drama; graphic, gory violence; and a diversity of realistic characters. My only disappointment was that the body count wasn't higher; there was a potential for many more victims. Nevertheless, I highly recommend "Want You Dead" for anyone who wants to read an outstanding, action-packed thriller.
