I’d no idea Kate Atkinson wrote crime novels…. and very good this one is too. I shall search the library for the earlier works featuring Jackson Brodie, although I’d also like to know more about Joanna Mason, the main character in When Will There be Good News?. As a 6 year old Joanna survived the unprovoked and brutal murder of her mother, sister and brother and in the novel we meet her 30 years later, a quietly respectable Edinburgh doctor, albeit with a rogue of a boyfriend. I really liked Reggie too….
