Description

It was meant to be a harmless stag-night prank. A few hours later Michael Harrison has disappeared, and his friends are dead.

With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Roy 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 more to gain than anyone realizes, for one man's disaster is another man's fortune....

Dead Simple is the stunning first novel in the number-one best-selling Roy Grace series from award-winning author Peter James.

Claustrophobic's Watch Out

What starts out as a revenge prank suddenly turns into a thriller. That is the basis of Peter James’ first book in the series of Roy Grace, Dead Simple.
Roy Grace is the detective who has to find Michael but what he doesn’t know is that the prank has led to more questions from Michael’s friends, leaving the listener to wonder if any of Michael’s friends are trustworthy. All this seems to make it even harder for Grace to figure out what happened to Michael.
There are several things that make this book even more dynamic. Peter James writes from different points of view in the book, that being the criminals, the victim, and the police. By doing this, James fills the book with even more suspense since the characters drive the story, making me wonder what was going to happen next.
Another great point of creating multiple points of view made the characters even more memorable because the characters
are more developed. People might argue that the point of view switches too much but in this book, it’s still easy to follow since Dead Simple is more of a thriller than along with being a mystery. I have read books in multiple viewpoints. Some were done well. Others weren’t. In Dead Simple, it was a great part of the story.
I have to say that this was one of the best books I have listened to this year based on the unique type of plot and the multiple viewpoints, which in this case gave the story a tremendous amount of suspense. I wish I can give this book more than five stars.

Tim Bruce was excellent with the delivery of the story

Starker Auftakt

Serie: Detective Superintendent Roy Grace
Titel: Dead Simple (Part 1)
Autor: Peter James
Sprecher: Tim Bruce

Der Sprecher Tim Bruce macht ein dramtisches Hörspiel aus diesem Buch. Ich kannte bislang nur die deutsche gekürzte Variante und die fand ich als Serienauftakt immer eher mau. Aber so ungekürzt macht alles Sinn. Der (manchmal gar nicht so feine) britische Humor kommt natürlich nur im Original richtig gut rüber. Zauberhaft!

Awesome!!!

In my opinion there's only one little thing to complain about: sometimes I couldn't make out which character was speaking. But since I understood most things and there aren't any questions left, I would definitely say it's still worth it!!
