In an evil world, everything is for sale....

The body of a missing teenager is dredged from the seabed off the Sussex coast, missing vital organs. Soon after, a further two more bodies are found...

Caitlin Beckett, a 15 year old in Brighton will die if she does not receive an urgent transplant. When the health system threatens to let her down her mother takes drastic action and goes to an online broker in black-market organs. The broker can provide what she wants, but it will come at a price.

As Superintendent Roy Grace investigates the recovered bodies, he unearths the trail of a gang of child traffickers operating from Eastern Europe. Soon Grace and his team will find themselves in a race against time to save the life of a young street kid, while a desperate mother will stop at nothing to save her daughter's life....

The best so far of the Dead... series

I have now listened to 3 of Peter James's books with Roy Grace as the detective. I enjoyed this one, Dead Tomorrow, the most. I really enjoyed the varying plots, and the pace of the book. I would definitely recommend this book the most so far.
Great reader. Sounds so much like Neil Gaiman (at least to me).

Good plot

The plot is enjoyable - with enough twists and surprises to keep you intrigued. Unfortunately the narrator misses the feel of the book and detracts from the enjoyment thereof.

terrible narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I was unable to finish listening to the book because of the narrator. He sounds like a train spotter & should not be allowed to perform another book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Peter James? Why or why not?

I love Peter James & will listen again with a different narrator.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Bauckham?

Stephen Fry, Roy Dotrice, Simon Vance, Anton Lesser or John Curless

Was Dead Tomorrow worth the listening time?

All his books are great, I wish I could get all the way through. I may have to buy the paper edition instead.

Great story

Great story! Maybe the best so far. There was less of Grace's personal story and more detail on the organ harvesting and transportation. Very riveting! It almost read like it should have a countdown clock running in the corner like some older tv thrillers would have. Quite a timeline.

We were introduced to great characters and we, at least I, cared for them.

I liked the fact that the author has cut back on using the exact same words for descriptions-what's in his office, what the PM room looks like, etc.

Narration was spot on.

Predictable

This is for the mass market. No thinking required to consume this book. Rubbish. Slow

A great listen

Another Peter James winner. Don't know how he does it but Roy Grace, Norman Potting and Glen Branson feel like old friends already. Plan to listen to whole series.
Also very well performed.

Author took Way Too Long To Tell The Story

I like a long book but this one went into so much unnecessary detail the story became dull. Only the excellent narration kept me from giving up. I am reading the complete Roy Grace series but my advice to anyone else doing the same would be to skip this one...you won't miss a thing.

Great performance & characters

The female characters I found a little grating but overall very enjoyable. Looking forward to the Sandy story developing.

Good story...with a few loose ends

This was a good book overall. The story started off a bit slow but picked up after a while. I felt like some loose ends needed to be tied up. I don't want to leave any spoilers but I wanted to know more about the resolution of some of the main characters.

Zu viel des Guten

Serie: Detective Superintendent Roy Grace
Titel: Dead Tomorrow (Part 5)
Author: Peter James
Sprecher: David Bauckham

Der Sprecher ist, wie immer, gut verständlich und vermag es auch wieder, den diversen Charakteren Leben einzuhauchen. Der herrliche britische Humor kommt hier auch wieder nicht zu kurz. Der immer interessanter werdende rote Faden um Roy Grace's verschwunde Ehefrau Sandy wird auch immer brisanter. Das Thema dieses Romanes, der illegale Organhandel ist gut recherchiert und extrem brisant. Also scheint mit diesem Roman alles in Ordnung zu sein. Irgendwie kommt aber angesichts der Fülle an Handlungssträngen keine rechte Spannung auf. Bitte nicht falsch verstehen, der Roman ist alles andere als langweilig...aber irgendwie wäre hier weniger mehr gewesen....
