Description of this Book
A BRILLIANT NEW LITERARY CRIME NOVEL FROM NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER KATE ATKINSON: JACKSON BRODIE MAKES A HIGLY ANTICIPATED RETURN Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son and an ageing Labrador, both at the discretion of his ex-partner Julia. It's picturesque, but there's something darker lurking behind the scenes. Jackson's current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, is fairly standard-issue, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network-and back across the path of his old friend Reggie. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking novel by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Big Sky is laced with Atkinson's sharp, dry humour, and one of the joys of the Brodie novels has always been that they are so funny, even when the themes are as dark as child abuse and sex trafficking. * Observer * I romped through it: as ever, the plotting is clever and complex, it's full of the dry wit Atkinson is so good at and it's an absorbing mystery. * Good Housekeeping * Jackson Brodie gets his fifth outing in the new novel by the reliably brilliant Atkinson. * Woman & Home * Jackson Brodie is back and how we've missed him....you're in for a treat. * Red * Atkinson's new mystery hits all the right notes * Sunday Times Style *
||Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
