On a dark night 30 years later, ex-detective Jackson Brodie finds himself on a train that is both crowded and late. Lost in his thoughts, he suddenly hears a shocking sound.
At the end of a long day, 16-year-old Reggie is looking forward to watching a little TV. Then a terrifying noise shatters her peaceful evening. Luckily, Reggie makes it a point to be prepared for an emergency.
These three lives come together in unexpected and deeply thrilling ways in the latest novel from Kate Atkinson, the critically acclaimed author who Harlan Coben calls "an absolute must-read".

Complex and extremely well written, with wonderful characters. I really enjoyed the narration as well.
I wait for Kate Atkinson's books suffering in silence. I'm glad to see jackson's still around and I loved Reggie. A great story which the narrator didn't affect one way or another.I definitely recommend.
I have to admit that after an hour i was tempted to give up on this but stuck with it and was rewarded with a really good character development book and interesting story. Have never read a Kate Atkinson novel but after listening to this i went and bought a couple more. Only problem, apart from the slow start, was a really bad scottish accent by the narrator. I come from the UK and it was no where close to authentic.
I was disappointed but it was average reading.
I have had the misfortune to purchase this item .
It seems that the writer wanted to fill it with several incoherent and very boring stories that seldom relate to each other.
Pls be careful if you think to get it.
