From Strength to Strength,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Man's Footsteps (Hardcover)
"Dead Simple", "Looking Good Dead", "Not Dead Enough" and now "Dead Man's Footsteps" this series from Peter James goes from strength to strength. This latest is well plotted and will keep the reader guessing to the end. It also begins with 9/11 and the graphic descriptions James gives of that terrible day will make the reader think the author was actually there.
Each of the books in the Roy Grace series is totally different and stands on its own as a seperate story. However, there is the sub-plot of Grace's life running through each tale so to appreciate the books to their full potential I would advise new readers to start with "Dead Simple". There is a mystery in Detective Inspector Roy Grace's life which is proving to be as fascinating as the murders he investigates. To miss out on this sub-plot would be to deny yourself the full enjoyment of the series.
I've followed Peter James' writing for a long time and I always thought him a good author, especially his paranormal novels. With the Roy Grace series he has hit upon a genre with which he is obviously comfortable and enthusiastic about. I look forward to many more gruesome murders and the gradual unravelling of Roy Grace's enigmatic private life.
