Want You Dead by Peter James

Description: Virtual romance becomes a terrifying obsession in Want You Dead…

Single girl, 29, smouldering redhead, love life that’s crashed and burned. Seeks new flame to rekindle her fire. Fun, friendship and – who knows – maybe more?

When Red Westwood meets handsome, charming and rich Bryce Laurent through an online dating agency, there is an instant attraction. But as their love blossoms, the truth about his past, and his dark side, begins to emerge. 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 Red’s nightmare is only just beginning. For Bryce is obsessed with her, and he intends to destroy everything and everyone she has ever known and loved – and then her too . . .

Opening:Karl Murphy was a decent and kind man, a family doctor with two small children whom he was bringing up as his own.

Although I love this series, some of the ratings from fellow followers of Roy Grace seem to indicate that they have fallen out of raptures. Is it the Sandi thing? As Louise points out, we would all like to see her out of the picture now and there was ample opportunity to do that via crossbow at the church, dontcha fink? In my mind’s eye she rushed in front of the groom right at the crucial moment, sorted.

Yet *le sigh* you missed the chance to rid us all of the albatross, Mr James: sharpen up! I’m not kidding when I say this background Sandi storyline wouldn’t even make a soap opera episode.
