The last words Jamie Ball hears from his fiancee, Logan Somerville, are in a terrified mobile phone call. She has just driven into the underground car park beneath the block of flats where they live in Brighton. Then she screams and the phone goes dead. The police are on the scene within minutes, but Logan has vanished, leaving behind her neatly parked car and mobile phone. That same afternoon, workmen digging up a park in another part of the city, unearth the remains of a woman in her early twenties, who has been dead for thirty years. At first, to Roy Grace and his team, these two events seem totally unconnected. But then another young woman in Brighton goes missing - and yet another body from the past surfaces. Meanwhile, an eminent London psychiatrist meets with a man who claims to know information about Logan. And Roy Grace has the chilling realization that this information holds the key to both the past and present crimes... Does Brighton have its first serial killer in over eighty years?… (mais)

This book begins when we meet Logan, a young woman talking on her cell phone while driving into her apartment’s parking garage. Before her cell phone goes dead she screams and tells her boyfriend there's someone hiding down there. By the time the police arrive, she has disappeared without a trace. Meanwhile construction workers are uncovering a 30 year old skeleton which turns out to b e a woman who disappeared in a similar way. Detective Superintendent Roy Grace and his team begin an investigation trying to link the common elements in these missing persons cases, revealing evidence of the abduction and murder of several young women going back decades. One common thread that keeps appearing is a tattoo found on the bodies that reads “U R Dead.”

Taking up right after events that occurred in Want You Dead, the Brighton police team is still in mourning. Roy and his wife, Cleo, are about to move to a new home and he's stressed out that his current case is interfering with plans to assist with the packing and care of their baby son, Noah. Roy is dedicated to this marriage, a new chance at happiness after the disappearance of his first wife, Sandy, years before. That mystery has yet to be solved, and each book in the series provides another clue to what might have happened to Sandy.

This is one of the best mystery series I've ever read. The secondary characters are woven into each new investigation which really enhances the story. If you are already a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed. Unlike many long running series, this series is still going strong. You Are Dead is one of the best in the series. I can't wait to read the next one.

SWEDISH REVIEW

Den föregående boken var den första jag läst i Roy Grace serien och jag fann boken mycket bra. Så bra att jag blev riktigt glad över chansen att få läsa uppföljaren. Dödsmärkt börjar med att en kvinna försvinner spårlöst från parkeringen under bostadshuset där hon bor. I en annan del av staden hittas kvarlevor efter en kvinna i en park. Det visar sig att hon har varit begravd i trettio år. Inte kan dessa fall ha något gemensamt? Men så försvinner ännu en kvinna och Roy börjar inse att fallen har gemensamma nämnare. Kan kvinnan i parken vara det första offret?

Jag tycker att Roy Grace serien är behaglig att läsa, böckerna är lättlästa och intressanta. Vad som jag tycker fascinerande med denna serie är att Roy Grace första fru Sandy försvann för flera år sedan. Roy är nu omgift och har en liten son. Men han grubblar fortfarande över vad som hände med Sandy och i denna bok kan han kanske äntligen få svar på gåtan.

Fallet var intressant, speciellt när det visade sig Logan, den försvunna kvinnan kan ha hamnat i klorna på en seriemördare. Frågan är om Roy och hans kollegor kan finna henne i livet och det verkar som om kidnapparen/mördaren inte är nöjd med att bara föra bort en kvinna då snart en annan kvinna blir kidnappad. vem är mördaren och vad är hans motiv? Kanske måste de söka sig tillbaka i tiden för att finna svaren. Kan liket vara svaret på deras gåta?

Dödsmärkt är en spännande och intressant bok. Jag tycker om att läsa böcker som sträcker sig tillbaka i tiden och Roy privatliv är fängslande. Slutet på denna bok, tja allt jag kan säga är att det ska blir intressant att läsa nästa bok...

Tack till Massolit Förlag för recensionsexemplaret!

ENGLISH REVIEW

The previous book was the first one I read in the Roy Grace series, and I found the book quite good. So good that I was really happy for the chance to read the sequel. You Are Dead begins with a woman who disappears without a trace from the car park below the apartment building where she lives. In another part of the town, the remains of a woman buried thirty years ago are discovered in a park. Nothing indicates that the cases have something in common. But, then another woman disappears and Roy starts to notice similarities between the victims, could the corpse have been the first victim of a serial killer?

I think the Roy Grace series is very enjoyable to read, the books are easy to read and interesting. What I find fascinating about this series is that Roy Grace's first wife Sandy disappeared several years ago. Roy is now remarried and has a young son. But he is still brooding over what happened with Sandy and in this book he might finally get the answer to the riddle.

The case was interesting, especially when it turned out that Logan, the missing woman may have fallen into the clutches of a serial killer. The question is whether Roy and his colleagues can find her before it's too late and it seems that the kidnapper/murderer is not content to just take away a woman as soon as another woman is kidnapped. Who is the killer and what are his motives? Maybe they need to look back in time to find the answers. Can the body be the answer to their mystery?

You Are Dead is an exciting and interesting book. I like to read books where cases go back in time and Roy private life is fascinating to read about. The end of this book, well all I can say is that it should be interesting to read the next book...

Thanks to Massolit Förlag for the review copy! ( )

This is the 11th Roy Grace novel. I have read the first one and this one. The thing I like is that I was able to read and enjoy this book without having read the other 9. It is a very good, intriguing and gripping read. Once I got into the story, I wanted to finish to see who was responsible as well as what would happen to Roy and Cleo.

On the same night a young woman is abducted, a decades old skeleton is unearthed under a path on the beach. Not immediately, but as the story unfolds, Roy begins to suspect that these events are linked. Many of the characters are from the earlier books and are introduced in a way that is not repetitious. The story quickly intensified which really kept my interest to the end, wanting to know how it would all work out. My heart just went out to poor Norman, grieving for his fiancé Bella and working as hard as possible to try and keep himself busy.

I did realise who the culprit was relatively early in the story, but that did not decrease my interest. There were clues and comments given that enabled me to figure out who the perpetrator was.

In the first book you find out that Roy Grace's wife Sandy disappeared 10 years earlier, and there are developments in this book about her that cause some speculation in the reader's mind about the marriage to Cleo and the mother of his baby boy, Noah. Apparently this story will be clearer in the next book. The book does finish on a bit of a cliffhanger, so if you prefer all the ends to be tied up in your thrillers, you will be disappointed. ( )
