Publisher's Summary

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 her 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.

A pretty good book

If you think this series is for you then start with a book from the beginning of the series rather than the middle or end. The main character, Roy Grace's personal life is a huge part of all the books in the series, as well as the lives of the secondary characters as well.

This was my first Peter James book. I had mixed feelings about his writing so I tried a couple more books before completing any reviews. By the middle of the third James book I tried I knew he's not an author for me and left the book unfinished. I tend to like book with some grit, dark moods, suspense or twists and turns as the crime mystery is solved.

This book is a police procedural, which I l usually love, so I gave it a try. The story is heavy on the personal lives of many of the characters and for me it puts the book more in the cozy category. The plot is enjoyable and the characters are well developed. The narrative is good the quality of the recording is professional.

Peter James never disappoints. Weyman's narration is superb. Finishing this book left me hungry for the next, as always.
