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.

"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.
"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!
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
