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