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.
"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.
"This was a really gripping story ."
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.
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.
He speaks like an ordinary person. and his voices were believable. I really enjoyed his reading
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.
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
"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!
"Guessed half way thro - but still a goodie!"
The female character Chloe really got up my nose. Overall story was great. Addicted!
On to the next!
"Performance too mannered to be tolerable"
please can I have a refund. I cannot listen to this performance which is too amateur to be bearable.
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.
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.
Another great book for the entire family to read twist and turn at every level is always full of fun and surprise
"fantastic story as ever, it's a rollercoaster ride"
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!!
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......
I enjoyed the character Skunk, reminded me of someone i knew years ago, and i felt David Bauckham portrayed him very well.
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!!
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.!
