Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

Less predictable stereotyping..social workers in particular.

What about David Bauckham’s performance did you like?

Well read.

Do you think Not Dead Enough needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There already is one

Another good read from Peter James

Would you listen to Not Dead Enough again? Why?

I would listen to this book again. I found the plot complicates and I think a second listen would help

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ds Grey remains my favourite Character. He's down to earth.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When she finally found her mother, wrapped in the rug. I could just picture the scene and the emotion.
