Brokenwood: population 5,000 and declining

On the face of it, Brokenwood is another quiet, country town like any other; the kind you might find just a few hours’ drive from any city. The people are nice and there’s a strong sense of community and provinciality. It has a golf club, a mother’s club and regular wine shows, everything you would expect… including buried secrets, treacherous lies and murder. 

Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd and partner DC Kristin Simms watch over the town, investigating the mystifying, inventive and macabre crimes that befall it. Look beneath the peaceful veneer, and you’ll see that murder is curiously at home in Brokenwood.
