Sleep Like the Dead e-book

by Alex Gray


Читать онлайн Sleep like the dead. Shaking his head slightly, Solly picked out a cloth book that rustled as he touched its pages.

Alex Gray Sleep like the dead We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. William Shakespeare,The Tempest It always began in the dark. Not the crepuscular velvet blue of romantic nights but the sort of total blackness one would find deep underground – a coal-black cleft where one wrong move might mean stepping out into a bottomless void.

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. And there was something else; something foul and rank as though some dead creature was buried underfoot. William Shakespeare,The Tempest. The sound of a heartbeat hammering within a tightening chest was the only sign of life unti. ntil that voice called out, soft and heavy within the thick blackness. Then a sigh, relief that he had come again.

Gray's best book yet. It is my first with the series and with the author, Alex Gray. I was surprised at the spare writing style and short chapters. A thoroughly impressive outing from a writer ready to join the top rank of crime authors. I had expected something a bit more descriptive, as I have come to expect of British police procedurals.

He waited, a small smile hovering on his lips as he anticipated the next move in this game. You insult me,’ he said, then waited once more as the Hundi remonstrated with him. ‘Things are not so easy, Mr Jaffrey,’ the Hundi pouted. We are in a recession still. Money is always hard to come by,’ he lied. Jaffrey knew that this would take time.

Already students had arrived back in the city, many of them looking for accommodation or books from their lists, trying to prepare for the autumn term that lay ahead. His postgraduate students had never really left though, working on dissertations that never seemed to be curtailed by the familiar markers of the academic year.

Good to meet the characters again. Hearing about their lives whilst following the plot to its conclusion adds interest to the book.

I have read every one of Alex Gray's novels featuring Lorimer. Each book has been entertaining and enjoyable. This is definitely one of her best efforts.

Enjoyed that there were plots within the plots. The characters are very complex.

Favorite character: DCI Lorimer and Detective Constable Frothy. Solly comes in close as well. Why? They have drive and compassion. Are smart and kind. Empathize and are fair. They want to get justice no matter where it leads and are blind to any prejudices that may be there. It is about getting justice for the victim and finding the truth.

Lorimer and his staff are on the hunt for a killer. But it seems that there are multiple murders that seem unrelated but killed by the same person. While trying to figure out why they stumble on clues that bring in a past and Solly unwittingly. While this is going on we get some personal situations as well such as the notes to Frothy, Lorimer and his wife’s relationship and what she is going through and the Hundi.

the story is fast paced and really keeps you on the edge of your seat. You try to figure it all out and the clues drive you batty because they are just enough to whet the appetite but not quite give you the whole picture for they slowly reveal everything. the personal aspect of the characters makes this more real and a great way to distract your mind and tease you about what you know. Those little nuggets of clues drive you to want more. And even after this one is solved there is still a wee bit of a mystery hanging around and it has you wanting to get the next book that has Lorimer in it. The writing is fluid and grabs you with likeable characters, a mystery that captivates you and has you play detective and a story that is complex with the multiple plots and storylines that weave together effortlessly and beautfiully.

This is a re-issue of a book published in 2011, now as an ebook, and one in a series of DCI Lorimer tales. It is my first with the series and with the author, Alex Gray. I was surprised at the spare writing style and short chapters. I had expected something a bit more descriptive, as I have come to expect of British police procedurals. Perhaps the Scottish nature caused the shift in style of this series. While the story itself was fine, it didn't pull me in enough. I wasn't fully engaged with any of the characters or the setting, although I would have really enjoyed the opportunity. I read the book on a 100 degree day in the desert Southwest. A book set in rainy Scotland seemed just the ticket for a weekend afternoon. But I couldn't quite get there, try as I might. I received my copy from the publisher through edelweiss.
