Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments The Perfect Murder

A quick read for September by Peter James

Victor Smiley and his wife Joan have been married for nearly twenty years, but each barely recognises the person they wake up with every morning. Victor is so fed up with his job at the local egg-box factory –as well as distracted by his visits to his favourite prostitute, Kamila– that he hardly notices his wife’s constant ridicule. Joan has resigned herself to the fact that Victor will never see beyond her double-chin to a new hair cut or outfit. She even puts up with his constant snoring which keeps her up night after night. Just. For unbeknownst to Victor, Joan is taking her sweet revenge: spending large amounts of money on his credit card, kitting herself out in a sexy new wardrobe, to impress her secret lover, Don. But then, as the bills mount, Victor loses his job. Soon he realises that the only way he can achieve his dream of setting up home with Kamila is to get Joan out of the picture. But Victor is about to get a nasty surprise. For he’s not the only one with murder on his mind . . .

Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Sorry, yes, we like to have a discussion. Avoid spoilers unless you know how to use the tag (view spoiler)

Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9068 comments This was enjoyable even though you could kind of see where it was going. Delightfully unlikeable characters!

Steven | 202 comments yeah i read this one a few years ago actually. i enjoyed it, it was the first peter james I'd read and it encouraged me to try some of his longer work. Might give it a re read now the group are reading it.

Adele (adelemitch) Thank you for making me reread this again. I initially picked this up not knowing anything about Peter James & immediately fell in love with his writing style. Then found out he had the 'Roy Grace' series & I've never looked back since. Got me out of my Tartan Noir phase anyway.
