Appearances can be deceptive; but the truth is a dangerous thing....
On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife he was 60 miles away, asleep in bed at the time. At least that's the way it looks to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, who is called in to investigate the kinky slaying of beautiful socialite, Katie Bishop.
Roy Grace soon starts coming to the conclusion that Bishop has performed the apparently impossible feat of being in two places at once. Has someone stolen his identity or is he simply a very clever liar?
As Roy Grace digs deeper behind the façade of the Bishops' outwardly respectable lives, it becomes clear that everything is not at all as it first seemed. Then he digs just a little too far, and suddenly the fragile stability of his own troubled world is facing destruction....
Not Dead Enough is the third best-selling title in the Roy Grace series from the number one best-selling author Peter James.

"Roy Crace, Another Great Read!"
This is another great book in the Roy Grace series. I love the detail in his descriptions and how he builds the picture, grabbing your feelings and pulling you into the book. Another great plot and looking forward to reading book 6 & 7!
"For once I disagree with the majority"
Book's functionally written and perfectly well read, but actual story is a little bit *shakey-hand*
The 'twist' is spotted a mile out and whilst I was hoping I was wrong, I wasn't. Just to compound the obvious twist, there's very little explanation after the grand reveal. Just feel the author had a half-baked idea and banged out a book around it.
"Peter James still in top form!"
Another page turner from Peter James.
Clue on top of clue building up to the grand finale. Roy Grace's private turmoil over his girlfriend, Clio, when his missing wife over 9 years, Sandy, is spotted in Munich. UAll together it makes for a page turner that kept me riveted to the end.
"Not as good as the last, but still worth while!"
The change from the "brilliant" book 2 to the "not so good" book 3 is mainly as a result of changing the narrator.
I do think this narrator, David Bauckham needs some getting used to. Hopefully, I'll find out in the next book.
However, if you're like me and tend to visualise the characters based upon the narrators impression, you constantly end up picturing Rick Mayal in Bottom. No matter how much you try to avoid it, his head ends up on my character.
Eventually, I managed to get past it, but it took a while.
The story is about two former students who flat share in London and spend their time trying to find "birds" and get "sloshed". Hold on... sorry, that was "Bottom."
This story is about a murder taking place and all the evidence pointing in one direction. Can Grace get to the bottom of it, or is it maybe a little too simple?
I did enjoy the book, and, narrator aside, I'm determined to finish this series. don't get me wrong, I have heard much worse.
on to the next...
"Gripping plot, quite graphic sexually though"
This was a great 3rd story from Peter James which kept me gripped until the end. I would like to see less graphic sex scenes though and it seems each book seems to focus a bit too much on the beautiful people. More realism please.
"Another very good story by Peter James"
It's very descriptive
Nice clear reading
Lots - I recommend you read it
Looking for more by Peter James
"Good detective story"
Really good characters. Possibly a little slow at times, but then again that gives the author time to develop the plot and the characters. Lovely twist, this one was a bit more obvious than previous book.
"good plot but dubious stereotypes in places."
As usual..good pace and plot.
But totally predictable and stereotyped characters in places
Less predictable stereotyping..social workers in particular.
There already is one
I loved it from start to finish. Got me guessing until near the end too!
"Another good read from Peter James"
I would listen to this book again. I found the plot complicates and I think a second listen would help
Ds Grey remains my favourite Character. He's down to earth.
When she finally found her mother, wrapped in the rug. I could just picture the scene and the emotion.
