A very exciting climax in this one. A very enjoyable book all round. 4.5 Stars. ( )

I love this series and I loved the twist in the tail. I also like the fact that the mystery of what happened to Grace's wife is still on going - was it her that his friend saw in Munich and if so why is she there? Can't wait to read the next one. ( )

Book 3, in Detective Superintendent Roy Grace Series

This is a perfect holiday read and certainly a pager-turner. Although early on into the mystery it is quite easy for any experienced crime fiction reader to pin point the few flaws and to figure out what is going on from the get-go. With this said we still have a plot above the run of the mill standard, one that offers plenty of thrills and spills, intense police procedural, colourful local details, sympathetic main characters, a memorable sidekick, an assortment of creepy miscreants, and the obligatory love interest.

This densely woven tale raised Mr. James’ game in terms of style and pacing with three murders to solve, one suspect and absolutely no leads. Once started this drama is an all-nighter… be warned …this is a long novel taking its time before it fairly rocketed along but I assure it doesn't take many pages before being pulled into a complex plot that draws its strands from all parts of Brighton society.

It begins with the murder of Katie Bishop. The prime suspect is her husband Brian, but Brian has a solid alibi. When shortly after Sophie Harrington, Brian’s love interest is killed. Brian’s every move is under the magnifying glass. The chase for the truth is on and makes for one very exciting and captivating read…it doesn't stop there another body is found….and many more twists comes our way…Roy is sure by now that Brian is the murderer…..but of course why stop there Mr. James knows how to dramatize every step and he does that with expertise.
We have a side bar that brings Roy looking for his missing wife in Munich and of course this to the chagrin of the delectable Cleo, Roy’s love interest…..a bit of piquant is in order here….

“Not Dead Enough” is very captivating from start to finish. I would recommend following this series in sequence to understand better the progression in the main characters’ lives. I loved this one and I will be looking forward to its sequel. ( )

ano9ther gripping murder for Det.Sup. Roy Grace and his sidekick Det.Sarg.Poole. Great read ( )
  magentaflake | Oct 26, 2012 |
A great crime thriller, set in Brighton. The writer's local knowledge really shines through - and the setting makes a refreshing change from London, Manchester etc. Our hero, Roy Grace is a great character and this novel develops his personal story a bit more which fits nicely alongside the main plot, the murder of two women. They are the wife and lover of the same man and he is the prime suspect. Can Roy Grace work out whether he did it or not? ( )
