Appearances can be deceptive; but the truth is a dangerous thing . . .

On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife he was sixty miles away, asleep in bed at the time. At least that's the way it looks to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, who is called in to investigate the kinky slaying of beautiful socialite, Katie Bishop.

Roy Grace soon starts coming to the conclusion that Bishop has performed the apparently impossible feat of being in two places at once. Has someone stolen his identity or is he simply a very clever liar?

As Roy Grace digs deeper behind the façade of the Bishops' outwardly respectable lives, it becomes clear that everything is not at all as it first seemed. Then he digs just a little too far, and suddenly the fragile stability of his own troubled world is facing destruction . . .

Not Dead Enough is the third bestselling title in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series from the number one bestselling author Peter James.

Not sure why B&N doesn't carry this's a must read! Roy Grace is an interting character solving crimes in Britain. James' books are always fraught with a creepy undercurrent of terror. Very well-written with believable characters; I would def recommend these books. You may also engoy: Ruth Rendell, Barabara Vine, Sue Grafton, Minette Walters and Morag Joss.

I enjoy Peter James' Roy Grace series. Each one is interesting and enjoyable.

A great crime thriller, set in Brighton. The writer's local knowledge really shines through - and the setting makes a refreshing change from London, Manchester etc. Our hero, Roy Grace is a great character and this novel develops his personal story a bit more which fits nicely alongside the main plot, the murder of two women. They are the wife and lover of the same man and he is the prime suspect. Can Roy Grace work out whether he did it or not?

An interesting plot which keeps the suspense with sharp dialogue and rounded characters, all set in an authentic Brighton backdrop. Some of the post mortem scenes may be a bit gory for those of a sensitive nature though. This is one of a number of Superintendent Roy Grace stories.

I listened to the excellent Recorded Books edition of this title - Peter James is a great new discovery and I hope he becomes more popular in the US! Excellent pacing and use of various points of view.

I really like the DS Roy Grace series although I found this one a bit laborious in some parts. I think this was due to the fact I have an in-built horror regarding people getting the blame for something they are innocent of which is a large part of the story. Also, I had worked out very early on in the book what must have happened although there was a very interesting twist on this at the end.Having said all this it was still a good read with the characters developing and interacting nicely. Fine attentiion to detail and continuity make everything fit together neatly.

Too man words and too many directions but it finally came together.

This cop is a shining example of what makes people hate cops. His stupidity and selfish concentration on his personal problems led to a very irresponsible arrest of an innocent and prominent person. And then when it was perfectly obvious even to this stupid git that he was innocent, he left him in jail because it was convenient for him. Major league jerk! It is also very implausible that a mediocre old guy, in both looks and abilities, would attract a supposedly beautiful young woman like Cleo. Typical male fantasy that can only really happen if the man is rich.
