Lynn Barrett is a single mother, trying to cope with life after divorce. And her life becomes an even bigger nightmare when daughter Caitlin is diagnosed with terminal liver disease. She is put on the transplant waiting list, but there is a shortage and most patients will die waiting. In desperation, Lynn turns to the internet and discovers an organ broker who can provide her with a liver - at a cost of L250,000. A few days later the organ broker tells Lynn she has found a donor, a perfect match for Caitlin, who is in a coma following a car crash. Meanwhile Roy Grace is working on the case of the remains of three young people recovered from the seabed off the coast. These remains lead him to a Romanian trafficking organisation of street kids from the Eastern bloc for the UK sex trade; some of them are also traded as organ donors.… (mais)

Tijdens baggerwerken wordt een jongeman uit het water gevist, met al zijn organen verwijdert. Roy Grace wordt op het onderzoek gezet en spoedig worden er nog 2 lichamen aangetroffen, beiden lichamen ook zonder organen. Intussen wacht Caitlynn op een lever en wordt haar moeder Lynn hoe langer, hoe radelozer. Via de legale weg geraken ze maar niet bovenaan de wachtlijst en Lynn beseft dat de tijd begint te dringen. Haar dochter kan elk moment sterven. Ze vindt via het internet een website waar organen te koop worden aangeboden. Het lijkt voor haar de enige uitweg te zijn om het leven van haar dochter te redden. Intussen komt Roy Grace op het spoor van een groep mensenhandelaars die organen duur verkopen op de zwarte markt…

Ten dode opgeschreven heeft een heel donkere cover en ook het verhaal is in die zin wel zwart te noemen. Caitlynn wacht wanhopig op een lever en gaat zeer snel achteruit. Haar moeder is radeloos en zoekt uiteindelijk haar toevlucht tot de zwarte markt voor een lever te kopen tegen een enorm dure prijs. De cover met het bootje past er enigszins bij omdat de lichamen worden gevonden door gebruik te maken van vissersboten. De korte inhoud was iets minder mijn ding, maar ik wou het zeker een kans geven!

Ten dode opgeschreven vormt het vijfde deel intussen van de Roy Grace serie, waarin we opnieuw kennismaken met de vertrouwde aspecten die Peter James eigen is. Verschillende verhaallijnen lopen kriskras door elkaar en lijken aanvankelijk niks met elkaar te maken hebben. Er zijn wel stukken bij die zeker korter hadden gekund en die uiteindelijk, na het hele boek gelezen te hebben, er niet veel toe hebben gedaan en dus echt overbodig waren. Toch las het boek deze keer weer enorm vlot, ondanks het toch wel zware thema dat hier aan bod kwam. Orgaanhandel en de wanhopige pogingen van een moeder om haar dochter te redden. Er worden soms wel ondoordachte keuzes gemaakt en op het einde was het wel een chaotisch boeltje. Het verhaal zat goed in elkaar, maar soms was ik niet echt meer voor de volle 100% mee, wie welke rol nu net weer opnam in het geheel. Het is wel frappant om te lezen hoe hier met mensenlevens wordt gespeeld om grof geld mee te verdienen. Echt onvoorstelbaar en degoutant om over zoiets te lezen en te beseffen dat dit in het echte leven hoogstwaarschijnlijk ook wel al voorgevallen zal zijn. Iets om over na te denken. Ten dode opgeschreven was dus opnieuw een zeer goed boek van Peter James, maar net iets minder goed dan het eerdere deel dat ik las. Ook het ietwat chaotische einde, de vele namen die voorkomen en stukken die overbodig waren en dus geschrapt konden worden, doen me uitkomen op een score van 4 sterren.

This is the fifth book in the DS Roy Grace series and is a more of a standard police procedural that the first four. A dead teenager is found in the waters off of Brighton with his kidneys and liver removed. Soon two other bodies are discovered, both minus their heart, liver and kidneys. Meanwhile, in a parallel story line, we meet 15-year old Caitlin, who is very ill and desperately needs a liver transplant. In another narrative, set in Romania, we learn the terrible plight of abandoned young children who are living on the streets, addicted to drugs, glue or paint-sniffing. Criminals, masquerading as charity workers, trick them into traveling to England, where the intent is to use them in horrific ways. It doesn't take a genius for us to see the future.

DS Roy Grace is now moving on, romantically, after his wife’s disappearance nearly ten years ago. He's hoping to make his relationship with new love, Cleo, more permanent. Co-worker and friend, Glenn Branson, is in an unhappy marriage and is living at Roy's house. Other than that, Grace is a pretty mellow guy. He doesn't have most of the baggage that comes with your usual detective. He's stable, reliable, sensitive, thoughtful and hard-working.

I really enjoyed this book, even though it's quite a long and detailed story. The numerous subplots lend to the tension and even though I knew where the story was headed, I still couldn't have guessed how it would end. This is a series I plan to finish in 2016 and I'm looking forward to the rest.

Somehow less gripping than its precedent book. Still, it's a decent story. And more development in the Sandy issue... ( )

Roy Grace book #5

The plot in this 5th installment is more of a conventional police-procedural than in the previous novel. Although, not particularly original in itself it is by far not your ordinary run of the mill bad cop/good cop story we find in most story of this genre. We may think that after so many books the vitality and freshness may have started to dwindle but I had no fear that Mr. James would deliver another blockbuster and he did.

In a few words:

When a dredger uncovers the body of a young man on the sea bed, Roy Grace is called in to investigate a crime that offers no clues other than an empty body cavity, leaving him totally baffled to find out what had happened. But when similar corpses are later uncovered it became clear to the investigators that they were dealing with murders of young people and the harvesting of their organs for sale.

“Dead Tomorrow”, ties the desperation of a mother with a daughter suffering acute liver disease to the vulnerable street kids and the burgeoning trade in human organs.

More thoughts:

In every good story we have a leading man, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, is not the stereotype characters we find in many novels. Roy has no alcoholism, misogyny and psychological disorders rather he is stable, reliable, sensitive and hard working. He is a hell of a cop. We will also find that all the supporting characters are so very human: from victims, to the pressured, to the investigators. In interweaving plot we learn of their personal lives, the nitty-gritty portrayal of teenagers and their emotions.

This is a most realistic portrayed plot I have read in a long time. It plays out more as a chase than an intricate layering of clues and red herrings. Its 500 or so pages move like the breeze even with the many details the tempo never bogs down. Mr. James created another world for us to temporarily become part of and for us to actually care what happens to his characters. What holds together this long novel is a strong narrative….

I certainly got my money’s worth ( )

Spännande om ett fruktansvärt ämne och människors ondska. Saknar dock djupet i karaktärerna och berättandet blir på ett sätt ytligt med schabloner på det goda och det onda. ( )

[James' methods] recall the famous instructions to preachers on how to address congregations: tell ’em you’re going to tell ’em; then tell ’em; then tell ’em you’ve told ’em... Unsurprisingly, there are no compensations to be had in the way of tone in [Dead Tomorrow].
