My rating: <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/568337155">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Even if this is the firs book of the series with Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, I started with book#5 <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6061545-dead-tomorrow">Dead Tomorrow</a> , then I read book#2 <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/362145.Looking_Good_Dead">Looking Good Dead</a>.<br /><br />Since I was curious to learn more about Grace's wife disappearance, I decided to read the first book of this series.<br /><br />Even if this topic is mentioned several times along the book, the mystery remains unsolved and it doesn't bother me any more.<br /><br />This is the story of Michael Harrison and his fiancee who is buried alive by his friends to play a payback prank on him.<br /><br />Excellent gripping mystery story, a real page-turner and I liked the way Grace and his team conducted the investigation.<br /><br /><img alt="" src="http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/imageLibrary/royal%20pavilion.jpg" class="escapedImg" /><br /><br />Just as curiosity, Peter James is the executive producer of the recent film adaptation of <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0379889/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm#cast" rel="nofollow">The Merchant of Venice (2004)</a> among several other 25 productions .<br /><br />It seems that <em>Dead Simple</em> will have a movie version pretty soon, having James as executive producer once again. To be checked.

So far, apart from just a couple of hitches, Plan A was working out fine. Which was fortunate because they didn't really have a Plan B.
Liked it so much that I'm heading straight into #2
