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.

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.!
Another good detective story, keeps you guessing to the end.
This is the third audiobook I have listened to, have also purchased no. 4 in the Roy Grace stories.
"Yet still dead"
Continuing on in the same vein, Peter James has written another mind grabbing novel. A great story and excellent twist.
"Great book, slow to start"
Yes again great Peter James book, third one in its series, can't wait to start no. 4 😉👍😉nitration was very good too!
Always like Norman Potting.
He grew on me, initially I just kept seeing Tony Blair.
Will be getting the next in the series.
No. the terrible narration reveals the weaknesses in the writing. I was enjoying the series but this has put me off and I will look elsewhere.
Tightened up his characterization and avoided clichés.
Terrible droning voice. Accent on wrong words. Is this man an actor?
So put off by the narrator that I gave up listening.
"decent story - but twists were visible very early"
I enjoyed this story, as I have previous Roy Grace Mysteries. This one had a number of twists that were spotted well in advance of the 'reveal' - maybe obvious, maybe too many mystery stories consumed by me! Overall, still worth the time to listen
"Grace at his best, multi-faceted storyline"
It ranks highly on the list of modern detective stories. Compared to the first and second Roy Grace mysteries, the characters start to feel more complete and interesting.
It is similarly compelling as the Rebus books by Ian Rankin.
I am not sure
The storyline was very well thought through
