C.J. Box. A stunning debut...At its heart this is a tale of bitter betrayal, lost hopes and broken dreams. The book has a tautness that is impossible to forget and which left me close to tears. It is also the first in a series. Its successor, Trespasser, also featuring Bowditch, is on the way. Grab him now. Daily Mail. Stunning vistas...eye popping scenes - The New York Times Book Review. This is a compelling, moving and utterly impressive debut - Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog. The Poacher's Son is one of the best written debut novels I have read in years.

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 'This is the author's own take on the story, with even more atmosphere, emotion and twists than the TV original.' Essentials Magazine '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 **Starred** Review '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.'
