Description

It seems to add nothing to the story and I didn't get the feeling it was a foreshadowing of things to come in another book. Following the highs and lows of fame, with addictive fans or stalkers, press attention and needing security. Actually there were so fanatics that it helps keep the reader guessing which one might be the ultimate baddy.

The obsessions with the rock superstar Gaia didn't really interest me, but certainly gave the book a different perspective that I surprisingly enjoyed; it made the plot a little bit different. Defying instruction not to contact the police, Kipp reluctantly does just that, and Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is brought into investigate. The best thing about this book was the descriptions and discussion of the Pavilion and it's history.

Moving from the heart of the city of Brighton and Hove to the Sussex countryside is a big undertaking for born townies, Ollie Harcourt, his wife, Caro, and their twelve-year-old daughter, Jade. Synonymous with plot-twisting page-turners, Peter has garnered an army of loyal fans throughout his storytelling career – which also included stints writing for TV and producing films. A week after the night she chases but fails to catch a mysterious trespasser outside her town house, some unknown party texts Tempe four images of a corpse that looks as if it’s been chewed by wild hogs, because it has been. But if you think you know the wonderfully rustic Pavilion, think again, because the book takes us into secret passageways, basements, a tunnel, and even the interior of the building’s central onion dome, which are rarely seen by the public.

Two of the author's old favourites found their way into the story - his missing wife Sandy (did you know, he had a wife who went missing. In terms of characters I really appreciated how Glenn Branson is stepping up to the plate a bit more. As Detective Superintendent Roy Grace arrives at the crime scene, he senses a deeper conspiracy than a mere break-in. Not Dead Yet is the eighth novel featuring Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, from the number one bestselling author Peter James.The thing I really like about James’s books is that he makes you care about the regular list of characters and what happens to them. I understand that this is a commonly used ploy to help delineate character but used to this extent it was off putting.

With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace - a man haunted by the shadow of his own missing wife - is contacted by Michael’s beautiful, distraught fiancée, Ashley Harper. He gains access to the roof structure and pours a metal-dissolving acid onto the chandelier’s fixings. Now Detective Superintendant Roy Grace of the Sussex Police force issues a stark and urgent warning to Carly: She could be next. But then he has a lot more to gain than anyone realizes, For one man’s disaster is another man’s fortune .

Yet when a vicious gangster is released from prison and an unidentifiable headless torso is found, a nightmare unfolds before Grace's eyes. One character central from the start was just thrown away, completely wasted storyline, the man storyline was predictable and as for 2 of the other subplots they were very poorly given one paragraph to conclude in what can only be described as a damp squib of a conclusion. From Peter James, the award-winning author of the Roy Grace series, comes Billionaire, an exhilarating financial thriller. Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. This is crime fiction for those who like to have well-rounded detectives with a believable private life.

Good aspects though: the storyline was a bit different this time, with more links to America where obviously Peter James spends a lot of time so it added a bit of variety in that respect. I also liked the author’s nods to social networking and some real-life actors and actresses- it made it feel very ‘now’ and provided shreds of believability. The House on Cold Hill is a chilling and suspenseful ghost story from the multi-million copy bestselling author of Dead Simple, Peter James. Grace discovers that the one man who ought to know Michael Harrison’s whereabouts is saying nothing.Several characters were involved in various threads, and to begin with it took some remembering who was who.
