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.

    "very good, not quite as good as the first 2"

    I really enjoyed Not dead enough but didn't think it was quite as good as the first 2 Grace books. I'm still going to keep on with the series. The Narrator was very good except his Irish and South African accents are appalling and that brought me out of the story a bit, luckily the were only used in a few places.

    "A Good Read"

    A real good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A good plot that keeps you hooked to the very end. Excellent narration from David Bauckham.
    The only dissapointment with this book was the six month wait for the release of this unabridged recording compared to the abridge recording. This appears to be the same with all the Peter James (DI Grace) books.

    "Best Read Yet!"

    Right from the onset this book was hard to put down. The plot thickened and left you on tender hooks. The likeable characters of Roy Grace and his best friend Glen make it an enjoyable read. Can't wait for the next installment.

    "..sorry, i pretty much hated it"

    Well, I'm not a massive fan of thrillers, but regardless - I found the characters dull and cliched. The narrator sounded like a beginner to me and added nothing to the lackluster characters and poor dialogue. The plot lumbered along to its fairly obvious conclusion with only the odd twist or mote of intrigue to allay my boredom. I was so very happy when it was over and I got to move on to 'White Tiger'

    "Not Quite Good Enough"

    Thought the characters interesting but the plot twist was too obvious. Pity Neil Pearson didn't narrate this unabridged version.

    "Not Dead Enough"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story, overall it was very clever, but I felt a little frustrated at having worked out the twist long before the main character did. Although some of the accents were a bit dodgy, the narrator built up the suspense brilliantly and I found myself gripped, not wanting to switch off my MP3 player until the story was finished. An excellent story for a long haul flight.

    "Brilliant"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration was one of the best I have heard which made it all the more enjoyable. Please can we have some more of Peter James's books unabridged.

    "Very enjoyable!"

    I've listened to a lot of books on audible and there's nothing worse than getting a dud!
    This is excellent...it's a modern detective story based down in Brighton, I wasn't convinced it would work as it's not exactly New York is it?
    How wrong could I be it's probably the best detective story that I've listened to and excellent value for money - You won't be dissappointed.

    "I really tried"

    With such good reviews, how could I go wrong? I found the author's style fussy, over elaborate, contrived and just tried too hard. The narration was also difficult to cope with. I really tried to enjoy this book, but gave up as not being worth the effort.

    "Not Dead Enough"

    Dissapointing as the twist is obvious from an early stage. I had hoped I would be proved wrong and that the writer had something clever up his sleeve. The sub-plot comes to no conclusion at all.
