Publisher's Summary

Virtual romance becomes a terrifying obsession in Peter James' tenth Roy Grace novel, Want You Dead....
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. But as their love blossoms, the truth about his past, and his dark side, begins to emerge. Everything he has told Red about himself turns out to be a tissue of lies, and her infatuation with him gradually turns to terror.
Within a year, and under police protection, she evicts him from her flat and her life. But Red's nightmare is only just beginning. For Bryce is obsessed with her, and he intends to destroy everything and everyone she has ever known and loved - and then her too....

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!

Tedious story. Bland performance.

Oh my... Let me start by saying 'Less would have been ALOT more'. Remove 3 hours of unnecessary 'stuff"...very tedious police procedure, violence in needless detail, dialog so mundane it had me reaching for fast forward - Enliven the main character (who was entirely devoid of personality) - Ditch the awful American accent, and the book might have been passable.

Very disappointing

What disappointed you about Want You Dead?

Predictable flat characters, cliched bedroom scenes, too long to reach the end only to find I guessed the ending two chapters in!

What was most disappointing about Peter James’s story?

It is quite the worst novel he has written - almost as though he has run out of new ideas. Sad because I have really enjoyed his work in the past.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Daniel Weyman?

Yes the poor chap made a reasonably good job of what he had to work with ( apart from the 'husky' women's voices!)

What character would you cut from Want You Dead?

On this occasion - all of them!

Any additional comments?

The main character is a woman called 'Red' apparently her real name. She advertises for a date in the personal column, he turns out to be your friendly neighbourhood psychopath ...

Riveting Read!

What did you like most about Want You Dead?

That the story remains a constant roller coaster throughout, there isn't needless downtime or lengthy overtly descriptive passages. Just good solid story that keeps you gripped.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bryce, the nasty piece of work! He is THE baddy in this book. I loved how quick and clever he was to get what he wanted from Red. How he faltered on the edge of insanity, and it chilled me to the bone to imagine there are very well people like him out there on the internet.

Have you listened to any of Daniel Weyman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first time hearing Daniel and he read the book wonderfully!
