Waterstones Says

Jackson Brodie finds himself at the Edinburgh Fringe in the second of Kate Atkinson’s cerebral crime novels. With the big-hearted former detective under suspicion for murder, he sets about trying to wrest the truth from a richly drawn rogues’ gallery of fellow suspects. Another engaging and multi-layered mystery from the great Kate Atkinson.

It is summer, it is the Edinburgh Festival.

People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - a near-homicidal attack which changes the lives of everyone involved.

Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander - until he becomes a murder suspect. As the body count mounts, each member of the teeming Dickensian cast's story contains a kernel of the next, like a set of nesting Russian dolls. They are all looking for love or money or redemption or escape: but what each actually discovers is their own true self.

“Lacking something”

I want to like Kate Atkinson's novels more than I do. Her plot fits together so neatly with all of the interlacing strands, and while it's effectively a detective story, it's got more depth to it and... More
