Publisher's Summary

One single act of kindness becomes an endless reign of terror....
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.
Looking Good Dead is the second best-selling title in the Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.

Enjoyable but questionable policing techniques

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, populated with vile villains, winsome detectives, and innocent by-standers with interesting backstories. The narration was excellent. I withhold the final star because the police procedure seems to be somewhat unrealistic in several instances, including overlooking clear connection between events, failure to utilize armed response officers, and a senior police officer's distraction by clothes shopping amidst a major, horrific murder investigation. The protagonist's consultations with clairvoyants is also off-putting. I have a hard time believing that such an officer could attain the rank of detective superintendent.

My Retro Read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely recommend this to everyone. I somehow missed this book in the series, and have just finished reading it after the latest book. I wasn't sure how that would work out, but I really enjoyed it, even though I know what happens to many of the characters later.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really enjoyed David Thorpe's interpretation of Norman Potting. He nailed the character and the accent.

Which scene was your favorite?

No scene was a particular favourite. I just got drawn into the entire book.

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

Just the terror of the entire situation. An innocent act of putting a CD in a computer to see what it was drew the character into a world of terror.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed David Thorpe's narration. He did a brilliant job, and I would love to hear him narrate some of the upcoming books!
