Need You Dead

Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award winning author Peter James, faces his most mysterious case yet in Need You Dead.

Lorna Belling, desperate to escape the marriage from hell, falls for the charms of another man who promises her the earth. But, as Lorna finds, life seldom follows the plans you’ve made. A chance photograph on a client’s mobile phone changes everything for her.

When the body of a woman is found in a bath in Brighton, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to the scene. At first it looks an open and shut case with a clear prime suspect. Then other scenarios begin to present themselves, each of them tantalizingly plausible, until, in a sudden turn of events, and to his utter disbelief, the case turns more sinister than Grace could ever have imagined.
  


My Review

Which, I have not read any of the other novels in this series, this book can be read as a stand alone novel. My reading experience did not really suffer from having been new to this series. I say didn't really because what I got to know of Detective Roy Grace, I liked. Regarding his intelligence, it was high and on point. The dialect between him and the rest of the characters was nice. Yet, the story as a whole was fine. There was just nothing that particularly made me jump up with intrigue or go "Ah ha". Yet, I do have to comment by saying that at least there was not much or a lull in the story and therefore downtime. So this made for quick reading. I did like what I read and would go back and check out the prior novels.
