Want You Dead

Idgie Says:
This is a crime novel involving a psychotic stalker who decides if he can't have the one he loves, no one will have her.  A relationship goes bad, but he's not ready to let her go.

While police procedural novels make me wince and cringe and I tend not to review them, I have to admit that the first two chapters grabbed me and didn't let go.  

The 10th in a series involving police detective Roy Grace. Roy has his own back history that weaves throughout the series and adds depth to his character and why he reacts to certain events as he does.

In Peter James' Want You Dead, thirty-year old Red Cameron meets handsome, charming and rich thirty-five year old Bryce Laurent through an online dating agency, and is instantly attracted to him. But as their love blossoms, the truth about his past begins to emerge, and with it his dark side. Everything he has told Red about himself turns out to be a tissue of lies, and her infatuation with him gradually turns to terror.

Within a year, and under police protection, she evicts him from her flat and her life. But far from being over, her nightmare is only just beginning. For Bryce is obsessed and besotted with her. He intends to destroy, by fire, everything and everyone she has ever known and loved—and then her, too. It's up to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace to stop him before it's too late...
