Description

One single act of kindness becomes an endless reign of terror . . .

Tom Bryce did what any decent person would do. But within hours of picking up the CD that had been left behind on the train seat next to him, and attempting to return it to its owner, he is the sole witness to a vicious murder. Then his young family are threatened with their lives if he goes to the police. But supported by his wife, Kellie, he bravely makes a statement to the murder enquiry team headed by Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, a man with demons of his own to contend with.

And from that moment the killing of the Bryce family becomes a mere formality - and a grisly attraction. Notice of Kellie and Tom's deaths has already been posted on the internet. You can log on and see them on a website. They are looking good dead.

Looking Good Dead is the second bestselling title in the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.

Review quote

A sick website which features videos of people being murdered is at the dark heart of this razor-sharp crime thriller. Gripping - but not for the faint-hearted. * News of the World * James dreams up a horrific intersection of extreme perversion and Internet technology in his frightening, expertly constructed second Det. Supt. Roy Grace novel . . . the rapid-fire suspense builds to a terrifying, graphic conclusion that leaves tantalizing room for future installments in the series. * Publishers Weekly * Sharply plotted, suitably sordid. * Daily Express * I couldn't put it down. -- Mark Timlin * Independent *
