Do yourself a favour and read the first before you read this and then, like me, eagerly await the next (even if I think I might have an idea who Gina's secret admirer is...) Please don't make us wait too long for book 3!
I can't say enough that you should read this book and its prequel! You'll enjoy it! It's funny, gripping and believable. Its terrifying for anyone who works in the industry because you can kinda see it happening. (Spoiler - Google Shipman for further reading after completion)
Fair warning, its clear that there is some setting up for a third book! Great news but if you are wanting to see some form of resolution of a couple of things you may find yourself pulling your hair out. No bad but I've been pulling since Feb.
In summary read the book! And I'm off to the wiggery.
As the investigation unfolds the twists and turns become more of a puzzle, unusual activity at the golf course, above average deaths at the local care-home, and a series of clues that just make the detective’s radar ping.
Book 2 of the Norfolk Coast Investigation Stories series and the events of book 1, “Collide-O-Scope” are still being felt in the fishing village of Brandale. Gina has recovered physically but emotionally the scars are deep. Sammy is having nightmares and being bullied at school by kids whose fathers are either waiting for trial or out of a job. The impact on Kate and Gina isn't good either, Gina has withdrawn, and Kate doesn’t know how to get through to her.
As always Andrea Bramhall’s story arc are excellently thought through and executed. This is a solid detective story, occasional leaps of intuition and faith, but essentially the local “Plod” following a series of interrelated clues and gradually uncovering how the events we see in the prologue came about.
The characters are becoming old friends, deepening as we get to know them, filling out details, colouring in history; their friendships and relationships growing over time.Read more ›
The novel opens in 2013 when dementia sufferer, Alan, walks in on a man suffocating another care home occupant. After a struggle Alan stumbles off to get help. Cut to 2016 and DS Kate Brannon is called in to the discovery of a skeleton found in a sealed off bunker. Everything about the case is undetermined from the cause of death to the victim's identity so Kate has her work cut out.
I enjoyed Under Parr. It has a good mix of a twisty plot and strong characterisation. Obviously the reader has more idea of motive than the police but the discoveries they make and secrets they uncover are mostly surprising and make for an absorbing read.
I liked the fact that many of the characters who come under suspicion or just into contact with the police are genuinely nice people with a desire to help and nothing to hide. It makes for a refreshing change. Apart from the investigation there is a fair amount of interaction between Kate and her colleagues and her girlfriend, Gina. I think the banter between the characters is natural and often amusing. I feel the novel is top heavy on Gina and Kate's relationship as Ms Bramhall rehashes all the key elements of her previous novel (no point in reading it now) and concentrates on Gina's efforts to survive its aftermath. While it is sweet it has no bearing on the investigation.
Under Parr is a good read.

OMG I can not believe Bramall ended her book the way she did. Talk about leaving it open, Frustrated is an understatement. So I'm guessing there is going to be a third. Read morePublished 3 months ago by jane shambler
