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!
"Fab listening of a DS Roy Grace Mystery"
I was hooked straight away. Yet again Peter James delivers. Had to tear myself away to eat, sleep etc....
If you want to get lost in a book this is it.
Excellent thriller, couldn't stop listening. The plot and the writing is excellent, Peter James is very clever. Kept me guessing until the end. Really recommended
"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.
"Pretty good, but not his best"
Took a while to get going on this book, whereas his previous books in this series have gripped me much quicker.
The narrator is only ok.
Narrator is not as good as the first few books but I see the series struggles to keep its narrator's
"Caught the villain but not this listener"
Sadly narration and plot did not take me beyond the words despite hopeful anticipation of a gripping story with interesting characters. New to Peter James who is obviously very popular so maybe the wrong book for me to start with.
"not his best work"
overall quite disappointed. the dialogue was painfully canned and the accents very false. i enjoyed some of his other books but this one was painful to finish.
"Another great story from Peter James"
This is the 3rd book if you get them in sequence and for me the best so far
Good plot with the usual twists and turns but the back story about Graces private life seems to come much more alive in this book
Usually listen in 30 minute to one hour chunks but the end of this is quite gripping and wasted 4 hours this evening as I had to keep listening
one annoyance with this series on Audible is each book has a new narrator which is disconcerting. David Bauckman didn't really impress me nothing bad but didn't seem as good as the readers of the 2 earlier books in the series
Looking forwards to book 4
"Slow at First"
I lost interest about a third of the way through this book as my attention kept wandering, read another book and then decided to give it another go. Glad I did as the pace finally picked up and I then thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the book. Excellent narrator.
