Publisher's Summary

An ugly duckling as a child, Jodie Bentley had two dreams in life - to be beautiful and rich. She's achieved the first, with a little help from a plastic surgeon, and now she's working hard on the second. Her philosophy on money is simple: you can either earn it or marry it. Marrying is easy; it's getting rid of the husband afterwards that's harder. That takes real skill. But hey, practice makes perfect....

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is feeling the pressure from his superiors; his previous case is still giving him sleepless nights; there have been major developments with his missing wife, Sandy; and an old adversary is back. But worse than all of this, he now believes a black widow is operating in his city. One with a venomous mind…..and venomous skills. Soon Grace comes to the frightening realization that he may have underestimated just how dangerous this lady is.

    "Murder mystery b"

    First time I've read/listened to a Peter James book. I'll certainly be reading/listening to more.
    The reading was done very well.
    The story line was good with all seemingly disconnect events happening, but all drawing together throughout the book

    "j ust another brilliant book in the series."

    Peter James had done it again. this time focusing not so much on Roy Grace but more on the criminal aspect. Well written and extremely well read and presented. A must for the fans of this series.

    Story
    "Danial Weyman great; "Roy Grace" not even "OK""
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    SPOILER ALERT: This is the second Roy Grace (Peter James) book I got, just because of Weyman's superb narration. Listening to him is such a pleasure that I managed to avoid thinking about the logical flaws in the first one (Book 11 in the series.) And BTW, "Roy", the next time you decide to track a serial killer into a tunnel, you might avoid being blasted by a shotgun, if you were armed yourself! Unfortunately, this book ( Book 12) is so absurd, that even Daniel Weyman can't make up the deficits. Among the dozens of irritating things that made me sigh, roll my eyes, or utter unladylike language to myself, are these: So Roy is an astute detective, famed for his methodical approach...and he didn't notice his previous wife was a drug abusing adulterer who couldn't stand being married to him? And instead of getting a divorce, she decided it would be easier to "disappear", go live in Germany, have Roy's child that he didn't know about, etc. Then... in spite of being so sickeningly "sensitive" to his current wife (the annoying, controlling, needy Cleo) that he worries incessantly about changing their baby's nappies and not waking Cleo when he gets out of bed to go to work, so she can rest from taking care of an infant who sleeps 18 hours per day... he displays no interest in finding out whether he, in fact, has another son in Germany, who is essentially an orphan, with no family or money to keep him going. And that's just the stuff that has nothing to do with the ridiculous aspects of the criminal investigation, such as the miraculous conversion of his sidekick from near soccer-lout status to undercover operative, as a suave, billionaire with an American accent.The time spent on this book was almost "worth it" in the sense that it kept my extremely active, identifying the gross flaws in every 10 minutes of this book's plot and characters. But, not enough to endure the blood pressure problems associated with having to endure the accompanying agony.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter James again?

    No.


    What about Daniel Weyman’s performance did you like?

    Everything.


    Did Love You Dead inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, avoid any more books by this writer.

    "I enjoyed my first Audible."

    This was my first Audible book. I was a little disappointed in the text. Peter James' use to make his books "Nail Biters" but I can tell along with myself as we grow older we lose a bit of ourselves. I wanted a little more of Roy Grace and his action and adventure. This was a little bit predictable. But I will always look forward to Roy Grace's next adventure, which I hope a little more Roy Grace. A lot in this book has finalized the sub stories that kept me reading. Bring those back Peter.

    Great addition to the series. Ties up past loose ends and creates new opportunities for the characters in the future.

    "Another engrossing Roy Grace story"

    Loved this! The story is, as always, beautifully told, with the different strands being interwoven skilfully. I was hooked from the word go and wonder where Peter James will take his hero next after the events in Grace's personal life take such an interesting turn.
    Daniel Weyman's narration is first class. His ability to voice different characters so cleverly, and his mastery of so many different accents, was superb and very much enhanced my enjoyment of the tale. Highly recommended.

    "Inventive plotting that kept me gripped"

    I’ve read/listened to Peter James’ entire series featuring detective Roy Grace and am amazed how the author keeps coming up new scenarios. The present book has one of the most imaginatively plotted: involving snakes, spiders and scorpions that will give some listeners nightmares. A rapacious young widow preys on elderly, rich men and who, once hooked, she murders in outlandish ways. One has to suspend belief that the men would be so gullible, the murders so elaborately contrived, and the coincidences as far-fetched, but this is fiction and it certainly kept me listening eager to find out what she got up to next.

    Two criminals on the run from previous novels re-appear and tracking them down is woven into the main story. Those who have followed the series will also know that there is a back-story of Grace’s first wife, Sandy, who disappeared over 10 years earlier. She reappeared in the previous novel and there is a certain resolution in this book, but there will obviously be further ramifications revealed in future novels.

    The narrator is excellent and a fine mimic of different accents, ages and genders to bring to life the larger than life characters inhabiting the story.

    "A much looked toward to, but disappointing book"

    I've loved the Roy Grace series from book one, but perhaps it is time for him to retire gracefully. Without spoiling the plot for others, the actions of the main female character and her apparent ability to avoid detection were not really believable, and the Sandy thread rather drawn out and predictable. So, sorry Mr James, I shall take great pleasure in re reading all the previous Grace books, but not this one.

    Another tip top Roy Grace masterpiece. Totally gripping from the get go. I simply couldn't put it down.
    The ongoing thread with Sandy is genius.
    Can't WAIT for the next one!

    "Possibly the best Roy Grace book - to date!"

    This is a book of journeys. And to be honest, it could have had another 2 or 3 chapters added to it & still not have been too long.

    I loved that we got to know & learn more about each of the characters - not just the regulars. I so want Roy's boss to get his come up-pence, which I suspect he will in the next book.

    This was a very enjoyable 'read' and takes me back to why I love these books, much more so than the last one, if I'm honest.

    Enjoy!
