Need You Dead by Peter James

5 Star

Lorna Belling, desperate to escape the marriage from hell, falls for the charms of another man who promises her the earth. But, as Lorna finds, life seldom follows the plans you’ve made. A chance photograph on a client’s mobile phone changes everything for her.

When the body of a woman is found in a bath in Brighton, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to the scene. At first it looks an open and shut case with a clear prime suspect. Then other scenarios begin to present themselves, each of them tantalizingly plausible, until, in a sudden turn of events, and to his utter disbelief, the case turns more sinister than Grace could ever have imagined.

I have long been a Roy Grace fan so was thrilled to read another one of the books in this series. Compulsively readable, this book was as good as the others with a fast-paced murder mystery that kept me guessing.

Roy Grace is a lovable character who is unparalleled when it comes to solving crimes, no matter how difficult they may be. This story being no exception, touching such topics as murder, infidelity and abuse until it all comes to the final denouement.

The regular supporting characters like Roy Grace's boss, Cassian Pewe, and Cleo making reappearances and the introduction of new characters like Roy's son, Bruno, every detail has been well thought out and executed in the continuing saga of the detective's life.

Peter James is somewhat of a genius in this genre and I wish I knew what his secret was in creating such gripping tales!
