Publisher's Summary

On a hot summer day, Joanna Mason's family slowly wanders home along a country lane. A moment later, Joanna's life is changed forever.

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".

    "a little confusing"

    I read,Case Histories,first and thoroughly enjoyed it. I expected this sequel to be as good. In some ways it was, I liked the way she interconnected the characters from the first book. The bad part was that listening I got distracted quite often and felt like I had to relisten to a few secions. I was losing track of who, what and where! My advice is that its enjoyable if you pay enough attention!

    "do not buy"

    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.

    "when?"

    I don't know when, after Case Histories, I couldn't stand any more than a few chapters
