Kelly's novelisation of the eponymous British TV series, works as both a classic puzzle and an unnerving portrait of a little English town wracked by a young boy's murder... Kelly folds a loving portrait of rural Dorset and a well-made whodunit into a painstaking account of the grief and unimaginable pain that follow in the wake of one child's murder. * Kirkus Reviews on BROADCHURCH: THE NOVEL * This is the author's own take on the story, with even more atmosphere, emotion and twists than the TV original. * Essentials Magazine on BROADCHURCH: THE NOVEL * The narrative allows for an insight into the mindset of the characters - from the baffled detectives to the raw despair of Danny's parents...a crackingly well-constructed crime story, with a wonderfully shocking conclusion. * Sunday Mirror on BROADCHURCH: THE NOVEL * Loved the ITV series? They you'll adore this clever read from psychological-thriller queen Erin. While a book based on a TV show shouldn't work, this really does...the big reveal still gives you a massive kick in the gut. * The Sun on BROADCHURCH: THE NOVEL *
