Not Dead Enough | [Peter James]

Not Dead Enough

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of Katie Bishop, a member of Brighton's social elite. Her husband Brian appears to be in the clear - he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelganger: is someone else - almost identical to Bishop - involved in the crime?

Publisher's Summary

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of Katie Bishop, a member of Brighton's social elite. Her husband Brian appears to be in the clear - he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelganger: is someone else - almost identical to Bishop - involved in the crime?

Grace's diligent exhuming of murky secrets soon demonstrates that the Bishops' outwardly settled lives had darker corners. And as Grace gets close to the truth, he finds - paradoxically - that it's his own beleaguered private life which is on the line.

    "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.

    Story
    "Another good read from Peter James"
    Would you listen to Not Dead Enough again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again. I found the plot complicates and I think a second listen would help


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ds Grey remains my favourite Character. He's down to earth.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she finally found her mother, wrapped in the rug. I could just picture the scene and the emotion.

    Story
    "This was a really gripping story ."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It had the trill element about it and I really felt for the victim as I do not like to be in too small a place. It was shocking too but the human nature element of the book was also so vivid and true to kind.


    What other book might you compare Not Dead Enough to, and why?

    No mans nightingale by Ruth Rendell was similar , a person buried but with this the person was dead and had bee buried for a long time.


    What about David Bauckham’s performance did you like?

    He speaks like an ordinary person. and his voices were believable. I really enjoyed his reading


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want too but in fact due to time constraints I listened to it is 4 or 5 sittings. I was eager to return to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am about to download another book by Peter James on to my Kindle which I tend to read in bed. I look forward to his next story

    Story
    "Good crime story when you get fast the faffing about"

    The story of murder and misguided revenge is exciting however you have to get through Roy Grace's annoying frendships and absent wife which take up half the book. I also found Roy Grace a difficult character to like. He seems to have as much a chip in his shoulder, most of the tome, as many of the criminals he chases. He really hates the NHS!

    Had difficulty turning this one off. Didn't guess the final twist. Have read one Roy Grace before and liked that as well. Well narrated.

    Story
    "excellent story"

    After listening to all the Peter Robinson novels and thoroughly enjoying them I bought this Peter James novel thinking that I may be disappointed. How wrong I was. The narration was excellent, story line brilliant. I can't wait for the next one.

    Story
    "fantastic story as ever, it's a rollercoaster ride"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story again from Peter James, Roy Grace has his work cut out on this mind bending mystery, would recommend to anyone interested in a good thriller!!


    What other book might you compare Not Dead Enough to, and why?

    The storys of Roy Graces exploits always grip my attention throughout the whole book as did dead simple, his first brilliant case, which left me panting for more......


    Which character – as performed by David Bauckham – was your favourite?

    I enjoyed the character Skunk, reminded me of someone i knew years ago, and i felt David Bauckham portrayed him very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Would not have been able to listen to the whole book in one sitting as it's too long and i always enjoy chewing the story and plot over for several days to pre guess who dunnit, though I'm always surprised how easy he switches the plot around just as i think i know!!


    Any additional comments?

    As i said, a fantastic book with plenty to keep the listener guessing, bravo and long may he continue entertaining me as i lay in the bath, my favourite place for listening to audiobooks.!
