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.

This is the third 'Roy Grace' book that I have read now, although I had to read the paperback version of book two because audible do not have the unabridged version. Initially I thought that this volume was a little bit on the slow side, but I needn't have worried; the pace soon picked up. As with the previous two stories, after the half way point I was unable to stop listening until I had reached the end. Peter James has the ability to lead you by the nose through the world that he's created. What a time thief! Can't wait to download story number four.
I was really looking forward to this book however by the time I was a third of the way in I was waiting for the characters to catch up. The twists were very easy to see coming and the whole thing left you feeling shortchanged. Also the audio narrator insisted on making all women’s voices sound stupid and weak.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
