I started out with the most recent book in this series and have now started back to the beginning. While, I liked the most recent book; I now see what this series is all about...Detective Superintendent Roy Grace. He is quick witted, commands respect from his co-workers, and does not stop until the case is solved.
Speaking of cases, this one had me from the beginning. In fact, I lost some sleep over it. Yet, I would gladly lose sleep for this book. Warning to self "don't ever agree to be the prankee in a prank". When the four friends got in that car accident and dead, I think I forgot to breath for a few. My next thought was "oh shit", now the stakes have just gotten higher. The story kept me hanging on until the end. Which took me a bit by surprise. I can't wait to continue this series with book two.
