    One thought on “Dead Man's Grip

    1. Jenny

Readers of Dead Man's Grip will be surprise with the ending of this book.I love Peter James character Detective [...]

      This was an ARC won from GoodReads. Dead Man's Grip is a police procedural (which is not my normal choice in books). It was not a psychological thriller, nor was it a suspense or a "whodunnit." I found the plot to be very linear and there were no surprises or turns in the story. It really was just a police procedural. I was hoping for some sort of a plot turn. I understand however that Peter James is very good at the this genre and the book certainly does take you along in the footsteps of the c [...]

    3. Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*

      Peter James is such a wonderful authorThis book kept surprising me all the way through - I would never want to get on the wrong side of this man. He has so many novel ways of doing a person in!In this chilling psychological thriller, a fatal traffic accident has unforeseen and unimaginable consequences.Lawyer, Carly Chase, took evasive action and crashed her car into a café instead of hitting the American student riding his bike on the wrong side of the road. But when breathalysed she is found [...]

      The seventh in the Roy Grace series. The opening few chapters involving a road traffic accident sets the scene. Without explaining plot spoilers, those involved in the accident become potential targets for the killer. Overall I enjoyed the book- PJ never disappoints for me. I love the snappy short chapters that are PJ trademark. However, I'm finding it hard to rate as some of the plot strands tend to be significantly less realistic.

    5. Tyrone

      For some reason it actually took a little while to get into this. Normally i devour one of these in a few days. I'm not sure if it was the description of the novel i read from the dust cover, or the involvement of the Mafia in a British police procedural. Or it may be because i also obtained all of the Jack Frost novels at around the same time and couldn't wait to get through those.Anyway, under pressure of getting the book of to the mother in-law who also loves crime novels, i finally got stuck [...]

    6. Amy Andrea

      Dead Man’s Grip by Peter James is a great book if you are in the mood for a mystery thriller. This book keeps you entertained and wanting to read more. The author switches the point of views from chapter to chapter keeping the reader involved and thinking. It is an exciting read about a girl, Carly, involved in a car crash. However, you later find out that it was not just an ordinary car crash. It turns out that the other drivers involved were tortured and killed before the crash and Carly was [...]

      I pre-ordered this book; something I don’t normally do when buying books. However, being a Peter James enthusiast and having spent many years living and working close to Brighton, (where the Roy Grace series of books are featured) I was keen to read the latest instalment. Unfortunately some bright spark in the marketing department, thought it was a good idea to post a video of Peter James explaining the plot of Dead Man’s Grip, his seventh book in the series. Within less than a minute we le [...]

      I keep getting sucked in by the great blurbs by people I really like, praising Peter James to the skies. And I really like good police procedurals, especially British and European ones - there are hundreds of them on my bookshelves. But Roy Grace leaves me lukewarm. He's a bit of a sad case - and the missing wife back story seems more of a distraction than an illumination. He reminds me a bit of Charlie Brown.This book has some decent bits - the attempt to rescue the kidnapped boy at the end is [...]

    9. Diane Challenor

      Too grisly for me, but I had to know what happened. So I raced through it. I can calm down now. My next book will have to be a much slower ride.

    10. Tory Wagner

      Another great outing for Detective Superintendent Roy Grace and his team. The story opens with a car accident that has stunning repercussions for all involved. The victim was the son of Mafia affiliated Americans who immediately seek revenge despite the accidental nature of the death. All three people involved, a delivery truck driver whose truck the victim falls under, a woman who skids off the road to avoid the victim, and the actual killer who hits the man, are targets for a hit man hired by [...]

    11. Joan

      I've just finished reading Susan Hill'sSimon Serraillerseries and was looking for a decent crime detective series. I like Lord Peter Wimsey, Commander Sam Vimes - that sort of character- and this series was recommended to me. Perhaps after being engrossed in Hill's series for the last couple of weeks I was expecting something on similar lines, but I was disappointed. If I had known this novel was about the mob, then I would not have bought it but also I couldn't get interested in the characters. [...]

    12. Cleo Bannister

      I was looking forward to this latest offering from Peter James but was left slightl disappointed. I think it was the hitman element which just didn't feel realistic, especially as all the previous books relayed a feeling that the events could happen.The story begins with Carly Chase getting into her car to take her son to school and being involved, although not directly, in a collision which kills a young American student. The writing is good, the setting well done and it is really nice meeting [...]

    13. Yvette

      A friend insisted that I should read Peter James' crime novels as they were far better than what I'd read before by him (Perfect People and The House on Cold Hill).But I find I've got the same problems here as with the rest of his writing: too predictable, too long windy descriptions which are unnecessary (who cares how many turns he takes during a drive to a crime scene, or that he takes a turn at a filling station or a Tesco), too gratuitously gruesome scenes which bring nothing to the story, [...]

    15. Sandra

      Another great installment of the Roy Grace series. This book was, for me, easier to keep track of than some of the other stories. There weren't quite so many twists and turns or a whole bunch of key characters. The story was, as always, interesting and captivating. As for the recurring thread of Roy's missing wife, I really hope some of it will be solved soon. Won't say any more because I don't want to spoil it for others, but I do think there's more to the story.

    16. Dane Cobain

      I had mixed feelings on this one, which is kind of annoying because I had mixed feelings about the last Roy Grace book that I read. Bizarrely enough, because I read the books out of order, this book is the book before the last one that I read, but that’s my own fault and actually it didn’t make too much of a difference here.The problem that I had with this book is that little things kept distracting me, such as the number of times that police briefings were interrupted by someone’s phone r [...]

    17. donna

      Peter James mystery's are always a good read but this was one of those annoying books where a woman's idiocy is the thing that drives the plot and irresponsible drinking just gets glossed over.

    18. Angela

      A Roy Grace police procedural, this book is very much a James' fast-paced, multiple plot story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can recommend it as a brilliant read.

    19. Colin Mitchell

      Four people's fate come together on a morning in Brighton, leading to a trail of murder and broken lives as Roy Grace and his team hunt the killer. The Grace saga is a little predictive but an entertaining read none the less. It moves along quickly and again has the sub -plot of Grace's estranged wife Sandy flowing through it.I would rate this as 3.5 just.

    20. Karen

      It took me a long time to get through this one, but only because of a reading slump.is is a very good series, the continuity is great and the author keeps me guessing, not something that happens to me very often. I like it that the police make mistakes, and even one of the "bad guys" from a previous book made a (creepy) appearance!

    21. Alla

      “Dead man’s grip” is the newest entry in Peter James’s mystery series featuring Detective Superintendent Roy Grace of the Sussex police force. In Grace’s newest case, Tony Revere—an American student studying in Great Britain and the grandson of a New York mafia don—is run over by multiple cars while biking on the wrong side of the road. And soon, all the drivers involved in the accident begin getting murdered one by one, until there’s no one left except Carly Chase—a middle-age [...]

    22. Elayne

      Loved it! As usual, a thriller worthy of its name from this talented author. I love it that, at first, the reader is puzzled by the different characters and what their role might be in the story, then it all comes together and you have a "ah ha!" moment! Its amazing what one person's folly could cause in the scheme of things, the events that come about because a woman with a hangover, is driving badly, a lorry driver who is exceeding his driving hours, so takes a different route, an impatient va [...]

    23. Paula Dembeck

      This is the seventh installment in the very popular Roy Grace Series. In this crime story the reader already knows the identity of the killer and follows Grace and his team as they try to track him down, wondering how long it will take and if they can apprehend him before he commits another gruesome murder.It is a rainy day when a horrible car accident occurs on the slippery streets in Brighton. The crash involves an Audi, an articulated lorry, a distracted bicycle rider and a mysterious white v [...]

    24. Alex

      I picked up this book without realising it was part of a larger series and that might have tempered my enjoyment a bit. I found the story to be predictable and cliched (especially in regards to the American mob family) and I was annoyed by the backstory regarding Grace's missing wife (probably makes more sense if you read the earlier books). The killer had some imaginative ways of disposing of his victims, but the rest of the characters seemed too familiar. The English police (Grace excepted) we [...]

    25. Diane S ☔

      Received this as a first read giveaway. I have read all the Roy Grace books and this one kept to the high standard set by his previous books. An accident involving a car, a truck and a white van that drives away after hitting a killing a cyclist sets in motion a chain of events that leads to Grace and his team investigating. Also set backs in his private life keep the novel swiftly moving. A fantastic twist at the end just add to this very good read.

    26. Jule

      Peter James Roy grace series is one of my favourite's of this genre - along with Susan Hill's Simon Serralier series. This was one of his best. The story line was plausible, the tension constant and the characters were all interesting.I recommedn the whole series being read in order and the main characters personal lives are interesting 7 evolving.

    27. Anne

      Absolutely loved this one - the best in the series so far for me, and I loved the references to other books and characters (especially the taxi driver!) and thought the Roy Grace personal bits were wonderfully tantalising

    28. Svein F Hestvaag

      James travelling across the Atlantic, and it works. The most appalling stuff though, is the story of Grace’s past, lurking in the shadows.
