Publisher's Summary

It was meant to be a harmless stag-night prank. A few hours later, four of his best friends are dead, and Michael Harrison has disappeared. With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Grace - a man haunted by the shadow of his own missing wife - is contacted by Michael's beautiful, distraught fiancée, Ashley Harper. Grace discovers that the one man who ought to know Michael Harrison's whereabouts is saying nothing. But then, he has a lot to gain - more than anyone realizes. For one man's disaster is another man's fortune. Dead simple.

Poor Plotting - Rather Ridiculous

What did you like best about Dead Simple? What did you like least?

Starts off OK - prank gone wrong. Will the groom live? Tell me, if you were trapped in a confined space with a cell phone fearing for your life who would you call? Hold on... you also have a walkie-talkie - and someone on the other end. Many people in fact.... So why, are you still stuck in your confined space. BECAUSE you decided to carry on a conversation with someone rather than dial 999 or 911 and get the heck out of your box. Really?! Hate it when writers don't follow through on their promise to create well thought out plots. This one goes from just poorly planned plotting to just silly. Look elsewhere if you want a great story, if you can get this one cheap and are willing to accept these failures sit back and enjoy - just keep an open mind.

Great potential but came up short

The story started out great but was disappointing. Weak one dimensional characters. Lame dialogue. Narrator could not do anything but male British accent.
