First Sentence: The front door of the one-proud terraced house opened, and a long-legged young woman, in a short silk dress that seemed to both cling and float at the same time, stepped out into the fine June sunshine on the last morning of her life.

On his way home from work, Tom Bryce finds a CD left behind by a passenger on the train. In an effort to identify the CD's owner, Tom opens it in his computer and witnesses the brutal murder of a young woman. When he tries to open it again, he receives a threat against himself and his family. Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is called to the scene where the dismembered body of a young woman, sans her head, has been found. Grace's team must first identify the body and catch the killer before more die.

This book is good; really good. I was captivated on page one and held until the very last page way too late that same night. The story is exciting, human, grisly, sexy, profane and I enjoyed every bit of it. All of the characters are very well developed; Tom's struggle to keep his business going, his wife's feeling of desperation, Roy's still coping with his wife's disappearance yet trying to move forward while trying to keep his job on track. It's a well-rounded plot with good sense of place and great dialogue, both verbal and internal. Thank heaven book three is due out very soon. Highly recommended.

My favorite English mystery writer is Peter Robinson, Peter James is very good and in a somewhat similar style-which I love. Looking Good Dead gets you interested right away and keeps you turning the pages. I like the setting in Brighton. The characters are well developed and interesting-leaving me wanting the next installment. It seems all my favorites are patterned after my favorites TV mysteries-Inspector Morse. This one is similar-the imperfect Detective Superintendent, who thrives on solving a difficult case but not the office politics and is a little clumsy with the fairer sex. This is the second in this series (DS Roy Grace). The first-Dead Simple-might even be better, but I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend Looking Good Dead.

This is the second Roy Grace novel by Peter James that I've read in the series. I'm going through the process of reading all of them in the order they were written. I'm late to this journey, but the trip is quite a blast. Having just read the first two I'm now diving head first into the third. Can't get enough of these novels. They're spectacular!

Roy Grace is on the case again. Maligned and manipulated , he encounters a menacing internet video company whose product is to die for! A rattling good English police crime yarn with an almost " Die Hard" finale! The "looking for Sandy and the amazing forensic scientist" is a worthy distraction from the grim chase.

Clever

The writing is page-turning. It has been a while since I read something I wanted to keep reading until I finished, but the Roy Grace series has me hooked. On to book 3!

Loved the character including the mystery of his wifes disappearance. Good mystery and good plot development. The pace was good throughout with near misses and thrills. Good characters on the civilian side; just people, neither good nor bad, ending up in a jam through a very believable twist of fate.
I didn't like the premise. Yes it was creepy enough but a bit manufactured. It's not up to his earlier books. The plot was thin to begin with. I wish he'd stayed with the abuse of immigrant labor part a bit more instead of heading off into who was killed stuff.

I won't wash my hands of him because he does write well. I just think this plot got too involved with other plot points.
