Very disappointing

What disappointed you about Want You Dead?

Predictable flat characters, cliched bedroom scenes, too long to reach the end only to find I guessed the ending two chapters in!

What was most disappointing about Peter James’s story?

It is quite the worst novel he has written - almost as though he has run out of new ideas. Sad because I have really enjoyed his work in the past.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Daniel Weyman?

Yes the poor chap made a reasonably good job of what he had to work with ( apart from the 'husky' women's voices!)

What character would you cut from Want You Dead?

On this occasion - all of them!

Any additional comments?

The main character is a woman called 'Red' apparently her real name. She advertises for a date in the personal column, he turns out to be your friendly neighbourhood psychopath ...

It's not a Kind of Magic

Another outing with Grace and company. This one isn't the worst audiobook in the series but it suffers from a villain who is just a bit too difficult to believe. There is some exciting action but the way that the characters act to contrive it really does push the boundaries. While after ten books I'm still a Roy Grace fan of course if I was his boss I would fire him and half of the enquiry team for the way they handled things towards the end.

I'm still enjoying these to be fair and unlike many I really like the author's patience with the Sandy storyline. However, the quality has been variable on occasion. Taken as a whole it is a very good police procedural series but it does have odd books within it that are not up to the overall standard.
