52 reviews of 2015This is the second book in Peter James’s series about Detective Superintendent Roy Grace from Brighton CID. Grace, haunted by the unsolved case of his missing wife, is hurled into a grisly murder investigation when a headless body of a young lawyer is found. Meanwhile, businessman Tom Bryce finds out the hard way that trying to do the right thing is often a very bad idea.

Looking Good Dead, while not dazzling crime fiction, is a decent read. James has a knack for storytelling and keeping you interested even when you can’t feel perfectly convinced with the story. If you’re looking for a gripping read for the weekend, you could do much worse.

Read my full review.
