Not Dead Enough marks another welcome appearance for the authors quirkily characterised policeman Roy Grace (who weve already met in Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead). Here, Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of a member of Brightons social elite, Katie Bishop. Her husband, Brian, appears to be in the clear he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelgänger: is someone else -- nigh-identical to Bishop involved? As in his previous cases, Graces diligent exhuming of murky secrets soon demonstrates that the Bishops outwardly settled lives had darker corners. And as Grace gets close to the truth, he finds paradoxically that its his own beleaguered private life which is on the line.
. With Not Dead Enough, were soon reminded that Peter James métier has long been machine-tooled plotting, and that particular skill doesnt desert him here. James himself spends time with the police of the Brighton area (his own beat) and that research is seamlessly freighted into the narrative here.
Readers are confronted with a dizzying variety of tales of murder and deception these days, but this one has an individual strand that marks it out from the crowd. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
