Dead Simple is the stunning first novel in the number one bestselling Roy Grace series from award-winning author, Peter James.
It was meant to be a harmless stag night prank. A few hours later four of his best friends are dead and Michael Harrison has disappeared. With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Grace – a man haunted by the shadow of his own missing wife – is contacted by Michael’s beautiful, distraught fiancée, Ashley Harper. Grace discovers that the one man who ought to know Michael Harrison’s whereabouts is saying nothing. But then he has a lot to gain – more than anyone realizes. For one man’s disaster is another man’s fortune . . . Dead simple . . .
My Thoughts: I read and loved the first 8 books back-to-back and then for some unknown reason forgot to read the rest of the series so I shall attempt to catch up with books 9-12 soon. I love Roy Grace and the personal backstory between his ex-wife, his current girlfriend, his partner and even his goldfish and combined with a different crime to solve in each book – this really is a superb series.
