    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

    When I started listening I thought I had made a mistake - I didn't like the voice of the man, the aggressive tone and the bad language,but I always think it worth persevering for a while and I'm glad I did. It's one of the those books that might take a bit of getting into, but once the characters were established and the book began to deal with the disappearance of Amy the feel of it changed and it became absorbing. So I would recommend - and if you start listening and have some doubts, keep going you will enjoy it.

    Lottie is tired of long-term boyfriends who don't want to commit to marriage. When her old boyfriend Ben reappears and reminds her of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. There will be no dates and no engagement - just a straight wedding march to the altar! Next comes the honeymoon on the Greek island where they first met. But not everyone is thrilled with Lottie and Ben's rushed marriage, and family and friends are determined to intervene. Will Lottie and Ben have a wedding night to remember...or one to forget?

    I am very surprised to find myself enjoying Sophie Kinsella's books - didn't think they would be my sort of thing, but they are funny and very easy to listen to. They make a good antidote to listening to crime and suspense books which I do a lot of. This was her usual stuff - scatty heroine surrounded by chaos but coming out good in the end. It's like listening to an old fashioned farce, brought up to date. Lots of fun and make me smile. Keeps me in the garden weeding long after I would have given up with this distraction.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was Peter James back on form with a good solid interesting read with all our favourite characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Man's Time?

    Lots of suspense and a worrying plot-line about Roy's girlfriend and new baby to keep the personal interest alive.


    Any additional comments?

    I have loved all the Peter James Roy Grace books and this is one of the best so far so all fans will really enjoy and new comers should start at book 1 and work their way through, they would not be disappointed.
