Product description

Review

"Crime has given Atkinson the freedom to write an ambitious, panoramic work, full of excitement, colour and compassion" Sunday Times "Atkinson's finest novel to date. Indeed, it's one of the finest British novels, in any genre, to have emerged for years...sharp and dexterous, subtle and stylish, very funny and at time extraordinarily cutting...This is very much a state of the nation novel - far sharper and more observant and satirically understanding than anything else out there at the moment. And yet Atkinson also gives us humanity, insight and entertainment...a story that deserves to be read for decades to come" -- Henry Sutton Mirror "The wonder of Atkinson's novels has been their joie de vivre, extraordinary given the high incidence of violent death. An irrepressible exuberance shines throughout..folds past and present together with Atkinson's customary flair...extraordinary combination of wit, plain-speaking, tenderness and control" Guardian "As ever, Atkinson's prose is diamond-cut to twinkle and slice by turns. Her playful sense of humour dances round the darkness of her themes. She skips through the difficult steps required to balance the reader's need for satisfying (and surprising) resolution with a realist's view of human nature and the messiness of real-life criminality" Daily Telegraph "A wonderful stylist...but she was never confined to the crime genre, has written in assorted other modes and excels at them all. Whatever she goes on to write, she leaves Jackson Brodie at a suspenseful and pivotal moment. Future installments are well worth waiting for" -- Janet Maslin New York Times

Review

"Kate Atkinson is an absolute must-read. I love everything she writes." (Harlan Coben, author)

“Kate Atkinson has found the mark again with her latest Jackson Brodie mystery.” (The Guardian)

"Crime has given Atkinson the freedom to write an ambitious, panoramic work, full of excitement, colour and compassion." (The Sunday Times)

"An intensely fascinating study into the effects of time and the constant battle between right and wrong." (The List)

"Readable, compassionate and very funny... too good to miss." (The Spectator)

"The wonder of Atkinson's novels has been their joie de vivre, extraordinary given the high incidence of violent death. An irrepressible exuberance shines throughout...folds past and present together with Atkinson's customary flair...extraordinary combination of wit, plain-speaking, tenderness and control." (The Guardian)

"As ever, Atkinson’s prose is diamond-cut to twinkle and slice by turns. Her playful sense of humour dances round the darkness of her themes. She skips through the difficult steps required to balance the reader’s need for satisfying (and surprising) resolution with a realist’s view of human nature and the messiness of real-life criminality." (The Daily Telegraph)

"Atkinson's finest novel to date. Indeed, it's one of the finest British novels, in any genre, to have emerged for years... far sharper and more observant and satirically understanding than anything else out there at the moment." (The Mirror)

"She's a masterful creator of character with an impressive ability to hold her creations and the many threads of their stories in her hand at once and weave them into a plot that is complex and wholly satisfying." (The Sunday Times)

"Accept Atkinson's vision; enjoy, admire, laugh and be moved...Atkinson is witty and satirical of modern mores; she is a virtuoso of dialogue." (The Times)
