Faced with his most disturbing case yet, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace tracks a serial killer in You Are Dead, by award winning crime author Peter James.
A series of young women – all beautiful, all with long brown hair – have been stalked and abducted. Each victim is found with a brand on their body, a marking that reads ‘U R Dead’. And some of their remains are from thirty years ago.
When Logan Somerville is taken while on the phone to her fiancé, Grace must find a lead, connect the cases and track down the killer before they can strike again . . .
Although the Roy Grace novels can be read in any order, You Are Dead is the eleventh thrilling title in the bestselling series. Enjoy more of the Brighton detective’s investigations with Love You Dead and Need You Dead.
Now a major ITV series, Grace, starring John Simm.
“May just be [Peter James'] best yet. . . . Truly masterful. . . . James is a master of background noises and images. . . . [which] lure the reader into the already compelling but often disturbing mesh of his narrative. . . . A book you really can't put down!” ―Huffington Post --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This may be the very best Roy Grace book I've read. You will not be disappointed! If you've never read this series, I suggest that you begin with book one in the series so you'll have many more outstanding novels to read!
Dr. Crisp's character is very intrigue, interest and unpredictable. Can't wait for the next book, hopefully, Sandy's saga will end with only a lie and a "new/old" son. And hopefully Cleo will forgive Roy. Tnx and pls be hurry to public the next Roy's Sexy Grace book :)!
Spent a lot of time focused on his personal life leaving less time to expand upon the plot and have any action. Not looking forward to the inevitable face to face with Sandy after all these years.

Secondly - there is a 1* review on here titled "dead as a dodo" (by SJ Howard on 28Jan2018). - I second everything he says. No point me repeating all of that again. He's got it spot on.
The writing just feels tired, the perp was obvious from very early on (as was the ID of his 3 friends), the Sandy storyline has gone soooooo far beyond annoying now that it's not funny any more. The references to Fat Boy Slim made me cringe a little.
And the padding - soooooooooooo much padding. For example - Grace was going to give a speech at a funeral and we got everything the vicar said and a lot of other superfluous bumf. Every time someone spoke to a witness we got just a LITTLE too much detail on what they looked like, what their house was like, a bit of their background story. When someone enters a storyline for all of 10 minutes, while they are questioned, we don't need to know all that stuff.
And when there was a Police Press Conference someone stood up and listed the name / job title of everyone on the stage and it took up a whole page. Still - was another page I could just flick past.
Final whinge - the ending was just annoying. As was the whole telling Cleo a lie and going off to you know where. I almost took a * off again for that.
In the end I've given it 2 stars because it's not the worst book that I've ever read (and I did get to the end, mainly by speed reading big chunks of it). But it's def the worst Peter James book that I've ever read.
An excellent plot, perhaps a bit far fetched but as always full of action. Girls are being abducted right off the streets of Brighton, cars and helicopters rushing all over the city. There are underground tunnels, a dodgy doctor, and a couple of surprises at the end. Sandy is still giving Grace grief even from another country, but could this be the end of her. Who knows! Cleo still simpers a bit. Darling this and darling that. Soon as she gets back to work the better.
Having said that, it was a great book to get stuck into.
