Amazon.co.uk Reviews

It's a tricky proposition, changing horses midstream. And with Looking Good Dead, Peter James continues to do just that. The author’s reputation as a purveyor of subtly chilling horror and fantasy had been carefully built up over many years, and James had few British peers in this field. But that is not quite the compliment it sounds, for the horror field is in one of its frequent slumps at present, and apart from a few American giants such as Stephen King, some highly talented figures have languished, in some cases even forfeiting their publishers. It's possible that Peter James saw the way the wind was blowing, and decided to move on from his hitherto lucrative horror work, returning to the crime arena (in which he’d worked before) with the adroit Dead Simple, the inaugural book in the series featuring Detective Superintendent Roy Grace. If DS Grace was cut from a familiar cloth (copper struggling with psychological problems), the plotting was innovative and fresh.

And so it’s proved to be once again with Looking Good Dead. Tom Bryce picks up a CD which has been left behind on a train seat, but when he attempts to track down the owner, he finds himself the only witness to a savage killing. Reporting the crime to the police has disastrous consequences for Bryce, and the lives of both he and his wife are threatened--by a notification on the Internet, no less. When DS Roy Grace becomes involved, he finds himself up against a malign group of very well organised criminals.

As in Peter James’ previous outing for Roy Grace, the plotting here is the thing. James addresses the crime genre as if he had never been away, and although Grace is, to be frank, not strikingly different from any other literary coppers, few people will complain when James’ storytelling acumen is as authoritative as it is here.
--Barry Forshaw

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. British author James dreams up a horrific intersection of extreme perversion and Internet technology in his frightening, expertly constructed second Det. Supt. Roy Grace novel (after 2006's Dead Simple). London marketing exec Tom Bryce makes the mistake of popping a CD he found on the train into his computer: it logs him onto a snuff film Web site, where he watches helplessly as a beautiful woman is butchered. Soon thereafter, Grace and his partner, Det. Sgt. Glenn Branson, find the mutilated body of the victim, Janie Stretton, a law student from Brighton, whose murder reminds him of the unsolved disappearance of his wife, Sandy, nine years earlier. While the lawmen pursue elusive leads, Bryce draws the ire of the twisted criminals behind the Web site and sees his family's comfortable suburban life unravel. The rapid-fire suspense builds to a terrifying, graphic conclusion that leaves tantalizing room for future installments in the series. (Mar.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Murder Mysteries Out There! 22 août 2016
Par Peter Anthony Holder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the second Roy Grace novel by Peter James that I've read in the series. I'm going through the process of reading all of them in the order they were written. I'm late to this journey, but the trip is quite a blast. Having just read the first two I'm now diving head first into the third. Can't get enough of these novels. They're spectacular!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely a good English murder mystery!! 4 mars 2014
Par clarkduck - Publié sur Amazon.com

My favorite English mystery writer is Peter Robinson, Peter James is very good and in a somewhat similar style-which I love. Looking Good Dead gets you interested right away and keeps you turning the pages. I like the setting in Brighton. The characters are well developed and interesting-leaving me wanting the next installment. It seems all my favorites are patterned after my favorites TV mysteries-Inspector Morse. This one is similar-the imperfect Detective Superintendent, who thrives on solving a difficult case but not the office politics and is a little clumsy with the fairer sex. This is the second in this series (DS Roy Grace). The first-Dead Simple-might even be better, but I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend Looking Good Dead.

My Uncle just turned me onto this series and I can't believe I didn't know about this author before! Peter James is a first class writer and I can't wait to get to the next book in the Roy Grace series. A must read for anyone who loves a great police procedural, mystery and thriller. The English perspective is an added bonus.

Roy Grace is on the case again. Maligned and manipulated , he encounters a menacing internet video company whose product is to die for! A rattling good English police crime yarn with an almost " Die Hard" finale! The "looking for Sandy and the amazing forensic scientist" is a worthy distraction from the grim chase.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read -leaves you wanting more 5 octobre 2014

Excellent read. Great story with twists that are slightly gruesome but in a way you want to keep reading to find out what happens. Only complaint is there is some fluff dialogue in the chapters. As I read the books in order I am enjoying the growth and emergence of main character, Roy Grace. You find yourself feeling empathetic and connecting with the character. Makes you want to read the next one.
