Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. British author James dreams up a horrific intersection of extreme perversion and Internet technology in his frightening, expertly constructed second Det. Supt. Roy Grace novel (after 2006's Dead Simple). London marketing exec Tom Bryce makes the mistake of popping a CD he found on the train into his computer: it logs him onto a snuff film Web site, where he watches helplessly as a beautiful woman is butchered. Soon thereafter, Grace and his partner, Det. Sgt. Glenn Branson, find the mutilated body of the victim, Janie Stretton, a law student from Brighton, whose murder reminds him of the unsolved disappearance of his wife, Sandy, nine years earlier. While the lawmen pursue elusive leads, Bryce draws the ire of the twisted criminals behind the Web site and sees his family's comfortable suburban life unravel. The rapid-fire suspense builds to a terrifying, graphic conclusion that leaves tantalizing room for future installments in the series. (Mar.)

Book 2, in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace crime series

This second novel is a wonderful follow up to the debut novel “Dead Simple” and has plenty of threads to connect the dots if you haven’t read it. Roy’s second outing is just as good, if not better than his first. The plot and pacing are simply terrific. There are plenty of farfetched scenes although terribly predictable will not disappoint, take the book for what it is and you will find it a rattling good read.

One of the pleasures of this book is Roy: a true professional at the top of his game, an intuitive policeman tormented by his wife disappearance, a man with a penchant for consulting clairvoyants on murder cases and one interesting distraction : his emerging romance with the local pathologist. What else do we want in a terrific protagonist?

This sharp and punchy sequel brings our troubled Brighton cop into the snuff world. The author particularly excels describing the very creepy villains that play roles in some of the scenes…The first murder comes early on- the brutal murder of an attractive junior lawyer broadcast over the internet. After picking up a discarded CD on a commuter train, Tom Bryce inserted it in his computer only to be shocked with what he witnessed. His brain said he was watching a movie but when her name showed up in the news he contacted the police and here the investigation began as Roy came into the picture……and we are left with sustained suspense throughout the pages till we reach the terrifying conclusion….

Once I started this book I had a hard time putting it down it was such a page turner.

I bought his first book, loved it.
This is the second in the series and just as good as the first one.
I have ordered the next four books.
I like how all the characters get introduced and then we see how they are intertwined.
And always something unsuspected happens.
His books are easy to read, and would want to keep reading to see what happens next.

Roy Grace is one of the best cop hero's today. I love reading his stories, and what he will do next. Will he ever find his wife, now there's a question. But maybe he won't have to. Read him, Peter James really has a handle on the police world. Keep them coming Peter.
