Best Roy Grace yet without a doubt, Peter James has not only raised the bar but lifted it sky high! Normally I will savour the new Roy Grace and prolong the reading enjoyment however that was NOT possible in this case.
I recently interviewed Peter and he said “that he aims to make each book better than the last” and this he has done with bells on. Love You Dead flows effortlessly from past to present and has everything I love about the series contained within it, but the introduction of Jodie Bentley is crime genius and I was drawn to her despite her very obvious talent for bad deeds.
The pace is incredible and I raced through the pages but still absorbed the emotions, the attention to detail and the crimes to be solved. I challenge Peter to better this one, superb.
Extreme thanks to the PR team and publishers for the review copy I received.
