Book Review | Want You Dead by Peter James

want you dead, peter james, novel review


I decided to read this book cause it is kinda related to me when the word "online dating" caught my attention. Please don't misunderstand me. I love talking with strangers online and the synopsis of the book is interesting to me! I have spent less than one week to finish reading this novel and finally come to the last page yesterday. I find it its quite interesting and I wanted to make a quick review of the book. Well, you know, just to have something to be updated on my site :P 
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 . . .
I believe by reading the synopsis help you visualise the story. It is about a girl named Red who seeks a love from an online dating site and finally met someone who caught her heart. They were so in love with each other until one day they broke up when the truth about Bryce has been revealed. He is actually a freaking psycho. Everything he told to Red was all lies. Red then met her new boyfriend but sadly he is being murdered. Her life turned into a nightmare when everything that she loves is suddenly burned down to ash. Even though I know the novel is a fiction, but I learned that dealing with a psycho is hell difficult! That person won't let you go until they get what they want from you regardless whatever it takes. You will live in a constant fear. As for Bryce, he knows how to get his way to stalk, to spy and to scare Red. If you read this book, you would know how insane he is!!! I love the part when Bryce monologue to himself. His words will absolutely give you goosebump and chills! 

I would say that the plot of the story is interesting and how the story goes give you the urge to keep reading until the last page. It gives you a curious feeling of what's going to happen next and what the predator is capable of doing to harm their victims. Never underestimate this kind of people! There's actually a lesson to learn of course. Never trusted people easily and always listen to your mum because they got the best instinct in the world. If she's doubting your boyfriend, means that there's something wrong with him :P 

Trust me, this book is interesting and not boring at all. This is my first time reading Peter James' novel and I would like to say that he knows how to excites his reader with his words. The English words are not complicated at all and I would recommend you to read the book if you are into crime genre! 

Toddles! x
