Book Description

For LA producer Larry Brooker, this is the movie that could bring the fortune that has so long eluded him . . .

For rock superstar, Gaia, desperate to be taken seriously as an actor, this is the role that could get her an Oscar nomination...

For the City of Brighton and Hove, the publicity value of a major Hollywood movie being filmed on location, about the city's greatest love story - between King George IVth and Maria Fitzherbert - is incalculable.

For Detective Superintendent Roy Grace of Sussex CID, it is a nightmare unfolding in front of his eyes. An obsessed stalker is after Gaia. One attempt on her life is made days before she leaves her Bel Air home to fly to Brighton. Now, he has been warned, the stalker may be at large in his city, waiting, watching, planning.

    3.0 out of 5 stars ...but definitely on the way out! 22 Feb. 2013
    By Kitty
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I've been a Peter James fan from early in my 20s when I read his older novels, such as Twilight, Host, Alchemist, Dreamer, Sweetheart, Possession. I devoured them and was continually freaked out by how scared they could make me feel when other thrillers just didn't engage me in the same way. His experience across several different areas meant he could write authoritatively, and descriptively in such a way that brought his stories, and his characters, to life.

    So I was delighted when the Roy Grace series came out and became such a hit. I looked forward to each book with bated breath, bought each one when they came out and couldn't wait to read them.

    This brings me to Roy Grace 8 "Not Dead Yet".

    Not Dead Yet is, for the most part fine. It's a novel, about a few murders, a Detective, a celebrity & a couple of nutters. The story in itself is ok, if not mostly predictable. The predictability is a real shame, because one of the main things I loved about Peter's previous books was that certain plotlines would remain hidden, often in plain sight for most of the book, then just leap out at me, as they should, during a 'big reveal' that I was not expecting. However, with this novel, I saw the twist plotting a route and enjoying the journey towards me long before it was finally ready to deliver itself to me. A minor character appeared, had a long back story filled in then disappeared only to pop up again for a few lines. I guess he's being primed to appear in a future book because his introduction brought nothing to this one.

    3.0 out of 5 stars weeeell, its ok.... 30 Jun. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Not the best in the Roy Grace series and once again kept hanging re the Sandy situation - not enough scene setting for this slow developing climax. Probably won't bother with next year's further adventures until read a review and clear that something has at last happened. Just because that aspect of Roy Grace's life may be concluded doesn't mean whole series would need to end.
    Nice twist with the main miscreant but final 'battle' felt a bit weak and not really a worthy adversary to Roy. Didn't feel any real peril for Roy. Also less gritty than previous novels in the series but Peter James' evidence of research on his novels' themes second to none. Great scenes re Top Gear, Crimewatch UK. Like the introduction of an old lag with a bone to pick, potential for a great showdown. Glen Branson character feels a bit tired and cliched. If I read 'hey oldtimer' or similar one more time I shall scream!
    Sadly find myself looking more forward to Simon Kernick's next book than P.J.'s.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Peter James usual standard. 1 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed the book, as I do all of Peter James' novels, but found some of the final chapters a 'bit far fetched'. This rather spoiled the novel for me. It was not up to his usual unputdownable standards.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait .... 11 Jun. 2012
    By PAPlod
    Format:Hardcover
    It always seems such a long wait for the new Peter James/Roy Grace to become available - and then when it is, time passes in a flash and you are totally gripped by the twists and turns of the story coming thick and fast chapter by chapter. It's almost impossible to put the book down - you actually care about Roy - and Cleo - and dread Sandy's possible return to spoil their happiness. All too soon the last pages are turned and all the threads are skillfully knitted into the final scenes. And back to waiting another year for the next one ... it's too much to ask to read slowly and ration the number of chapters read in a day ... if you've never read Peter James' books, do start with Dead Simple and the previous titles so the storylines develop correctly but if you do know these books, rush out now and get your copy - what better way to spend a wet June afternoon or two!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping and thrilling read 22 Jun. 2013
    Format:Paperback
    Peter James is a prolific crime writer. He writes authentically and compellingly. The attention to details are superb. Being an experienced screen-writer, adds real credibility. Evidently, he shows vast experience of working in Hollywood and closely with actresses.He knows how to deliver a gripping and thrilling read.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. The pace is so fast. It keeps you enthralled until the end. The plot is based on the show-business world about a film star Gaia. What is making headlines? The film star will be filming a major Hollywood production. Where is the place? It is in Brighton, the hometown of the star. Can this film reach new heights and prominence for the actress?

    The film is a romantic story based on a historical period. The novel is mostly England based, without over-doing the Hollywood angle on lavish lifestyles and the usual clichés of the movie business. The consequences can be severe, if the news spread to the wrong people. Gaia is about to experience the nightmare celebrities sometimes face. There are obsessive fans hot on the trail at whatever expense. This particular fan goes to great lengths and spends ludicrous amount of money on keeping shrines and galleries of the actress. DS Grace is the central character in the author novels. He is over-seeing security arrangements of the film star, as the stalker is persistent and you cannot take the eyes of the ball at anytime. He has other pressing matters to deal with, which comes in the territory of being one of the most senior police officers in the department. There have been reports of an appalling and sickening crime in a farmhouse. DS Grace needs get to the bottom of the matter, as it maybe linked to the stalking events. DS Grace is a well-developed character.
