Detective Superintendent Roy Grace has to solve a disturbing murder whilst protecting an innocent eye witness in Looking Good Dead, by award winning crime author Peter James.

When a young woman’s body is found butchered in Brighton, Roy Grace cannot help but think of his own missing wife and her unsolved fate.

Elsewhere in the city, when Tom Bryce finds a disc left on a train, he simply tries to do the right thing – return it to its owner. But this attempted act of kindness makes him the sole witness to that same vicious murder.

Learning that Tom has made a statement to Grace’s team, the killers have to act. But when they plan the murder of the Bryce family, it’s not just revenge – it’s entertainment.

Although the Roy Grace novels can be listened to in any order, Looking Good Dead is the second gripping title in the bestselling series. Enjoy more of the Brighton detective’s investigations with Not Dead Enough and Dead Man's Footsteps.

Now a major ITV series, Grace, starring John Simm.

If you like a fast-action, well-written thriller, then I would recommend this book. As another reviewer mentioned, there are some sexually violent scenes and I wish that Mr. James had not included them but overall, the story is well-plotted and interesting. I have read another book by James and in that, there was no sexual violence and it was a male who was the central victim. The narrator was excellent with taking on the various characters' voices and is especially good when the author throws in some humour.

I don’t much mind the vulgar language, but women in this book are mostly treated as despised sex objects, and violence, including sexual violence on children, is graphic and gratuitous. Ugh.
