Looking Good Dead

Looking Good Dead

★★☆☆☆ Unfortunate

Subtle as a bulldozer and only sporadically gripping, Looking Good Dead, which is at the King’s all week, works on one level as undemanding entertainment, but is not exactly guaranteed to have the crowds flocking back to the theatres.

Not Dead Enough

Not Dead Enough

★★★☆☆ Grace notes:
Quincy meets Crossroads as the latest adaptation of a Peter James thriller, Not Dead Enough, hits the King’s Theatre. Literally.

Peter James’ The Perfect Murder

Peter James’ The Perfect Murder

★★★☆☆ Dark energy:
There is considerable entertainment in Peter James’ The Perfect Murder, an unremarkable, grimly humorous murder mystery elevated by the efforts of Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace.

Dead Simple

Dead Simple

✭✭✩✩✩ Overcomplicated:
While there is much in Dead Simple to satisfy fans of the crime genre, on a dramatic level it is far from convincing.
