Publisher's Summary

You are Dead is the eleventh thrilling crime novel in Peter James' Roy Grace series.
They were marked for death.
The last words Jamie Ball hears from his fiancée, Logan Somerville, are in a terrified mobile phone call. She has just driven into the underground car park beneath the block of flats where they live in Brighton. Then she screams and the phone goes dead. The police are on the scene within minutes, but Logan has vanished, leaving behind her neatly parked car and mobile phone.
That same afternoon, workmen digging up a park in another part of the city, unearth the remains of a woman in her early twenties, who has been dead for thirty years.
At first, to Roy Grace and his team, these two events seem totally unconnected. But then another young woman in Brighton goes missing - and yet another body from the past surfaces. Meanwhile, an eminent London psychiatrist meets with a man who claims to know information about Logan. And Roy Grace has the chilling realization that this information holds the key to both the past and present crimes... Does Brighton have its first serial killer in over eighty years?

This series had promise

Soporific redundancy at the hands of greedy publishers and subhuman editors took this batch of somewhat credible characters into the realm of sophomoric tripe.
The development of the black lieutenant (or whatever you Brits call them) was a pregnant opportunity wasted. The mawkish, trite expressions of affection were enough to induce nauseous moments.
I only wish the future of the crime writing genre can transcend this pablum.
I read an author's series to lend them the benefit of the doubt. In this case, I want all my wasted hours (and credits) returned!

Another fantastic read!

Don't know how Peter James does it, his books just get better and better! A great story, love the characters, I always feel like I know them personally. As usual, I can't wait for the next Roy Grace book.

A grisly chiller

Would you listen to You Are Dead again? Why?

Probably not; I rarely revisit books. Too many still to read and never enough time!

What did you like best about this story?

Superb plot and character development. The series goes from strength to strength. I'm interested in the characters and sub plots and want to know about their lives.

What does Daniel Weyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great diction and great pace. I was literally breathless towards the end as the final scenes played out.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Grace is a man I think I'd like, along with Cleo. He's fair and has integrity. I care when things don't go well for him.

Any additional comments?

I'm a big fan of Peter James and the Roy Grace series. You Are Dead is number 11 and I was hooked throughout.

Grace is settled with Cleo and his son, Noah and they're about to move home when he's called in to lead on a missing person case. One disappearance leads to another and it soon becomes a major incident. James is excellent at the police procedural aspect. Developments play out in short sharp chapters in what feels like real time, keeping the pace and tension tight. More than that, he also has great psychological insight into his characters. There's a sense of familiarity and continuity as the story picks up from events at the end of the previous book. This book works well as a stand alone, but there are threads throughout the series and sub plots continue to develop.

I felt the plot was particularly well executed. There's a real sense of drama which builds to a literally heart pounding climax. Plus a further twist, but I'll reveal nothing more! The action is firmly rooted in Brighton. The strong sense of location as the story unfolds reinforces both plot and characters.

I'm enjoying the way Grace is changing as a character. He's again troubled by conflict of loyalty and duty, home versus work, present versus past, old rivalries and new beginnings. He's torn on more than one occasion and there's an interesting development in the Sandy story. His work colleagues feature again and I'm interested in how their lives move forward. So all in all, this is yet another first class winner. I enjoyed it and was left wanting more.

Another Great Roy Grace Read

Peter James at his best. Roy Grace is maturing brilliantly. And another gruesome killer in the plot. This one more intricate than in previous books. Loved listening to it but now sorry it's finished. Can't wait for the next one!

Mixed feelings .....

Overall a clever, but exaggerated storyline. The ending was disappointing - Two major story lines unfinished. Narration was good but female characters' voices were unconvincing, stereotypical.
