In the sleepy British seaside town of Broadchurch, Detective Ellie Miller has just returned from vacation, only to learn that she’s been passed over for a promotion at work in favor of outsider Alec Hardy. He, escaping the spectacular failure of his last case, is having trouble finding his way into this tight-knit community wary of new faces. But professional rivalry aside, both detectives are about to receive some terrible news: Eleven-year-old Danny Latimer has been found murdered on the beach.

For Ellie it’s a personal blow; Danny was her older son’s best friend. She can’t believe anyone in Broadchurch would ever have harmed him. But Alec considers everyone, even Danny’s parents, suspect in his death. It’s a living nightmare for everyone involved … even before the press arrives and starts stirring up the secrets every town member keeps hidden behind closed doors.

An intimate portrait of a town and the ordinary grievances that have slowly simmered for years before boiling over in an unthinkable crime, this remarkable adaptation of the hit television show Broadchurch tells the story of a shattered family, a reeling town, and the two imperfect detectives trying to bring them answers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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 (starred review)

  • “A police officer haunted by failure gets a chance at redemption…The solution will surprise many.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Narrator Carolyn Pickles, who is in the popular Broadchurch TV series, uses a flat tone to present the facts of this well-plotted mystery…While projecting empathy for the Latimers, Pickles dispassionately reveals the secrets and lies of the townspeople as they’re unearthed. Her timing and pacing never falter as she keeps listeners glued to the story.”
