Publisher's Summary

Don't imagine for one moment that I'm not watching you....
The Metropole Hotel, Brighton. After a heady New Year's Eve ball, a woman is brutally raped as she returns to her room. A week later, another woman is attacked. Both victims' shoes are taken by the offender....
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace soon realises that these new cases bear remarkable similarities to an unsolved series of crimes in the city back in 1997. The perpetrator had been dubbed 'Shoe Man' and was believed to have raped five women before murdering his sixth victim and vanishing. Could this be a copycat, or has Shoe Man resurfaced?
When more women are assaulted, Grace becomes increasingly certain that they are dealing with the same man. And that by delving back into the past - a time in which we see Grace and his missing wife Sandy still apparently happy together - he may find the key to unlocking the current mystery. Soon Grace and his team will find themselves in a desperate race against the clock to identify and save the life of the new sixth victim....
Dead Like You is the sixth novel in the multi-million copy bestselling Roy Grace series from number one author Peter James.

This was another amazing tale of crime and skullduggery which, as always, is solved by the wonderful Roy Grace. The plot is complex but entirely believable. Whilst the narrator was good I do not feel their voice was best suited to this sort of book.

A cracking book....but a lousy listen.

I have no problems with the storyline or the way it is structured, which puts me at odds with another reviewer who didn't feel it read like a normal Roy Grace novel.
In fact I quite enjoyed the storyline and couldn't wait for my next commute so I could hear what would happen next.
Sadly, what completely naused this book up for me was the awful narration. It was clear to me that the narrator either had a stinker of a cold or adanoidal problems.
With audio books, the presentation is all. However this was like a beautiful display in a shop window with broken glass :-(
