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.

I've read all of Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brody novels and, though the first was great, this is the best of them. There are multiple story lines, each of them intriguing, and Atkinson does an amazing job of weaving them together for a very satisfying ending. Jackson Brody is back but he is a secondary player through much of this book. The true hero of this story is 16 year old Reggie (Regina) Chase. Reggie is nanny to Dr. Joanna Hunter. When Dr. Hunter goes missing Reggie does everything she can to get the police involved. When they show little interest, Reggie implores Jackson Brody to help her. The title of this book couldn't be more apt. Everyone in the story had to be asking themselves the same question, again and again.

"Review" by , "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."
"Review" by , "Thank God, in these hard times, for a cheerful, ghoulish, gory book like this"
"Review" by , "[A] psychologically astute thriller...in which understated, deadpan intelligence illuminates characters' inner lives within a convoluted plot."
"Synopsis" by , 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."
