    Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet, Lost on the left, Found on the right, and the two never seem to balance. His days are full of people clamouring for answers and explanations. A jealous husband suspects his wife. Two spinster sister make a shocking find. A solicitor investigates an old murder.

    Lisa says: "Very satisfying"
    "Hooray for Kate Atkinson"
    Overall

    Hooray for Kate Atkinson she is truly a gifted writer. I loved the characters and found them to be realistic. She described the way people live in England truthfully and so incredibly well. This book was totally wonderful and really held my attention throughout. I LOVED IT and would recommend this author again without any hesitation.

    When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage, not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

    "I liked it - sort of and more like 3.5"
    Overall

    This is the first time I have ever reveiwed a book in writing though I do recommend books for people to read often by mouth.

    I really like Dan Browns books and had purchased this book in paperback but never read it. Once I got used to the reader's voices and got through the first part I was hooked. I think it would be better if you could rewind a bit or fast forward a bit if you wanted to, but putting that aside the reader actually sounded like Ray Milland when he did his British accent which I quite liked actually. The story was sort of predictable with some surprises at the end but not really in the same class as either Angels and Demons or The DaVinci Code so as long as you don't expect that kind of writing you wont be disappointed. A good read but not worth so much money - it should have been way cheaper as it certainly doesn't deserve the price that it costs and I probably would have given it a higher rating if it had been cheaper. But I did like it and really like listening to books on my Ipod.
