Single girl, 29, smouldering redhead, love life that's crashed and burned. Seeks new flame to rekindle her fire. Fun, friendship and - who knows - maybe more?
When Red Westwood meets handsome, charming and rich Bryce Laurent through an online dating agency, there is an instant attraction.

Most Helpful

This was just a boring, slightly skanky, book.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend that a friend NOT read this book. There is so much FILLER, so little plot. The villain endlessly reads and re-reads his old texts to the woman who rejected him ...I started skipping ahead. kiss, kiss, kiss...ad nauseum.

Would you ever listen to anything by Peter James again?

Yes, I like Peter James, mostly, although he does a terrible job with female characters. This guy doesn't get women, not at all. They're all slightly stupid and vengeful and shallow, even the ones he pretends to really like. But I can overlook that...usually I enjoy the Roy Grace novels. Just not this one.

What about Daniel Weyman’s performance did you like?

He did an heroic job with terrible material.

Was Want You Dead worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

I was disappointed...I always read reviews before I buy and this time it seemed as though everyone was either delusional or lying.

Top Thriller

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

I rarely give 5 stars which I save for the very, very best. This did not quite deserve 5 stars but was better than my normal 4 star reads; wish you had ½ star ratings Audible. Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to a friend who enjoyed a good thriller. It was an all rounder; a well fleshed out book and the ending was perfect.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the plot did keep me 'on the edge of my seat' so to speak. James, cleverly built up the suspense from one chapter to the next, but interspersed each heart thumping moment with a bit of softness and love to do with our policeman's personal life which was a wonderful contrast to the crazy protagonist who stalked nearly every page.

Which character – as performed by Daniel Weyman – was your favorite?

Pretty well all of them, but he did Detective Inspector Grace pretty well, and also his yankee accent wasn't too bad with the Bryce character either.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't date on line and die......

Any additional comments?

Well written tight plot, terrifically narrated by Daniel Wyman. Character development was excellent, this book contained all the necessary elements of a good and very satisfying thriller suspense novel. Absolutely recommend!

- Janie "I am an artist, living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia right next to the Great Barrier Reef. I listen to audiobooks everyday while making art and on into the night. I really like mysteries with a good serving of suspense on the side that keep you wondering right to the end. However, I won't say no to any entertaining and well written book which has been read by an excellent narrator."
