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!

Like watching your favourite soapies

Would you listen to You Are Dead again? Why?

No, but only because I rarely listen/read books more than once.

What did you like best about this story?

I have listened to every other story in this series and it's like watching my favourite soapie as I have grown to love all the characters. As usual, likeable characters with their own personalities and enough twists and turns to keep you totally hooked.

What about Daniel Weyman’s performance did you like?

I associate his voice with Roy Grace. Perfect

Any additional comments?

Definitely read/listen to these books in order or sometimes it could be hard to follow.
