I was intrigued when I heard that Graham Norton was releasing his debut fiction novel, having watched him on TV for years and finding him immensely entertaining I wondered what his writing debut would bring and set about getting the book from net galley.
Those that seen Norton may have certain expectations on what he would write about and you’ll probably find yourself very surprised when you start this book.
PJ Collins is the local police officer in a village not used to much police action, over weight and not used to drama when a body is discovered on an old farm PJ is suddenly at the centre of what could be the unravelling of a huge village secret.
In their youth Eve Ross and Brid Riodran fought over the affections of Tommy Burke, but then he disappeared ‘to London’ leaving both women in the lurch and with lives that could have been very different.
In the following investigations many secrets are unearthed and old rivalries stirred – it’s definitely not what you’d expect from Norton but a wonderful and exceptionally well written debut novel full of surprises (of the good kind!)
An excellent debut which I will be recommending to all!
