My Teaser this week is from Broadchurch by Erin Kelly

Broadchurch

Blurb

It’s a hot July morning in the Dorset town of Broadchurch when Beth Latimer realises that her eleven-year-old son, Danny, is missing. As Beth searches desperately for her boy, her best friend, local police officer DS Ellie Miller, arrives at work to find that the promotion she was promised has been given to disreputable Scottish outsider DI Alec Hardy.
When Danny’s body is found on the beach Ellie must put her feelings aside as she works with DI Hardy to solve the mystery of Danny’s death. As the case becomes a murder investigation the news hits the national press, jolting sleepy Broadchurch into the national spotlight.
As the town’s secrets begin to unravel, members of this tight-knit community begin to consider those in their midst. Right now it’s impossible to know who to trust… NetGalley

My Teasers
It’s Hardy’s idea of hell – fresh air, isolation, grass, never-ending sky – but he knows that the world’s full of idiots who love this sort of thing.

The angry mob of villagers wield camera phones, the twenty-first century equivalent of pitchforks and flaming torches.

  1. Happy year and a day, Cleo! This week you have something that is definitely of interest to me. I ‘almost’ liked the tv series when I saw it. Didn’t even realize it was a book–which should be better.

    Mine this week is back again to a series mystery: The Closers by Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch #11) at http://wp.me/pZnGI-aU

  2. Oh, I love that mental image of people waving cameras around! Love that analogy too! I’ve heard good things about this one, so I was interested in it anyway. I’ll be keen to see what you think of it when you’ve finished.

  3. I never watched Broadchurch, I kept missing it and couldn’t be bothered with the catch up as it was all over the TV what was on the last episode. I don’t know if I would read the book though as I know who the killer is.

    Here’s mine

    1. I’m not sure whether I would have enjoyed it if I’d known whodunit but I’ve seen a few good reviews from people who watched the show (so presumably knew) but then I’m biased as Erin Kelly is one of my favourite authors.
