Publisher's Summary

Case One: A little girl goes missing in the night.

Case Two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack.

Case Three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

Thirty years after the first incident, as private detective Jackson Brodie begins investigating all three cases, startling connections and discoveries emerge.

    "Great Twists and Fun Read"

    I've become a great fan of Atkinson. She's an excellent story-teller, developing engaging characters and plot lines that surprise.

    "Unique mystery"

    I enjoy all Kate Atkinson's books. She has a unique style moving from one plot line to another, taking the reader on a multi layered adventure and ending by tying up all the loose ends with some surprises.

    "Great writing!"

    I had a hard time getting started because I wasn't paying close attention. I am so glad that I stayed with it! Kate really makes you Think...

    "Thanks, NPR, for introducing me to Kate Atkinson!"

    I thought I didn't really like fiction very much but have now thoroughly enjoyed listening to three Kate Atkinson novels, usually at the expense of something else I should be doing. The complex characters' stories are interesting, sad, and thoroughly engaging, and I laughed a few dozen times at Atkinson's wry, ironic tone.

    "Wonderful series"

    Beautifully written, by turns heartbreaking and hilarious. Every character indelibly drawn, especially flawed hero, Brodie.

    "Meh,.... Shouldn't have been a "detective" story"

    This book was disappointing. Several stories in entwined together....at the very, very end. It was basically three stories and mostly about the detective himself, that somehow were fit together in the last 30 minutes. There were Sind interesting characters, the writing wasn't awful, and the narrator was ok..but if you are looking for a detective story or anything reassembling the twists that are typical, don't waste your credit.

    "Not impressed"

    Gave it a shot, ended up skipping to the last chapter. Maybe it was the melodramatic narration. Whatever the reason, won't be getting another book by author nor narrator.

    "Exceptional narrator for an exceptional book!!!"

    I am loving all things by Kate Atkinson. Terrific wit and observer of human behavior. Great stories, all woven together very cleverly.

    "Intriguing"

    The stories were woven together like rich vines. I didn't want to press pause. The reader was so well suited.
