Kelly has completely captured the rolling tension, cinematic detail and superlative characterisation of the [TV] programme...and even if you are new to the story, you will be instantly mesmerised...Original viewers of Broadchurch will quickly identify the little twists and new details added to the novelisation - a neat touch that enhances the story even further. Whether or not you were a fan of the TV show, this is one crime book that does not disappoint.
Kelly takes ownership of this novelisation by exploring characters' relationships and unvoiced emotions; she's masterful at weaving unbreakable connections between characters, and then tainting them with fear, guilt, and suspicion...a must-read for followers of character-driven police procedurals like those of Elizabeth George, Denise Mina and Tana French.
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.
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 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.
This is the author's own take on the story, with even more atmosphere, emotion and twists than the TV original.
With the addition of new material never seen on screen, Kelly takes a fresh perspective on the murder investigation, particularly the breakdown of a close-knit community. Whether you've seen the series or not, this is definitely worth your time.
