Looking Good Dead

Tom Bryce did what any decent person would do. But within hours of picking up the CD that had been left behind on the train seat next to him, and attempting to return it to its owner, he is the sole witness to a vicious murder. Then his young family are threatened with their lives if he goes to the police. But supported by his wife, Kellie, he bravely makes a statement to the murder enquiry team headed by Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, a man with demons of his own to contend with. And from that moment the killing of the Bryce family becomes a mere formality—and a grisly attraction. Notice of Kellie and Tom's deaths has already been posted on the internet. You can log on and see them on a website. They are looking good dead.  

My Review

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace gets better and better as these books progress. He has intelligence but at the same time he shows his human side and he works well with his co-workers. Although, it is not just Grace that I enjoy about these books but the story as well. Instantly, I connect with the story in the moment and stay engaged all the way until the end.

While, Tom Bryce may have been fighting for his family, he still put up a good fight. Yet, I probably would have done the same thing if I had been in Tom's shoes. A reason why I was very intrigued by this storyline is because it dealt with "snuff" films. Yes, they are real and no I have never watched one. Even with this subject matter in this book, the blood was limited and not gory. So, fans of a good mystery/thriller will enjoy this book. I know I did and plan to continue my journey reading these books and seeing what new cases Grace finds himself solving.
