Industry Reviews
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

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

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

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: Fabulous Magazine

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. - Bella Magazine

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. - Booklist
