Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 thirty 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.

Review:

"Good as it is, this latest Brodie book nearly bursts at the seams. It shows off an imagination so active that When Will There Be Good News? can barely contain it." New York Times

Review:

"Thank God, in these hard times, for a cheerful, ghoulish, gory book like this" Washington Post

Review:

"[A] psychologically astute thriller...in which understated, deadpan intelligence illuminates characters' inner lives within a convoluted plot." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Three lives come together in unexpected and deeply thrilling ways in the latest novel from Kate Atkinson, the critically acclaimed author whom Harlan Coben calls "an absolute must-read."

I've read most of Kate Atkinson's novels and this is one of the very best. It's suspenseful and deeply heartfelt and explains a lot about Jackson Brodie's haunted personality. Beautifully written, as any Atkinson fan has come to expect.

Interesting characters and terrific plotting make this novel a satisfying read. As the darkest of events unfold, readers are plunged into an exploration of what love and family really is and other heart-stopping dilemmas like murder. Not just another crime novel.
