Teresa de Eugene, November 6, 2014 (view all comments by Teresa de Eugene)
This is a story of murder, lost children, and detectives/police officers with secrets and puzzles and guilts that last decades and inform their present actions. The characters' histories hit and overlap like drops in water, expanding outwards. Their many adventures are connected by lines of famous poems running in an unlikely way through their heads as they do startling things: beat up a dog abuser and adopt the dog, pay a prostitute for her abused child, and dig into long ago murders for the answers they need now.

Kate Atkinson has done it again. This latest installment in the Jackson Brodie series is every bit as good as the preceding three. A true page turner. I stayed up until 3 AM just to finish it. Highly recommended! Start with "Case Histories" and read them all (in order).

"Staff Pick" by ,

Tracy Waterhouse is an oversized gem of a character — well worth chasing after through this perplexing maze of a plot. When she impulsively decides to buy an abused child from a prostitute on the street, mayhem ensues.  Just try to keep up. You'll be soundly rewarded for your efforts.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "British author Atkinson's magnificently plotted fourth novel featuring Jackson Brodie (after When Will There Be Good News?) takes the 'semi-retired' PI back to his Yorkshire hometown to trace the biological parents of Hope McMasters, a woman adopted by a couple in the 1970s at age two. Jackson is faced with more questions than answers when Hope's parents aren't in any database nor is her adoption on record. In the author's signature multilayered style, she shifts between past and present, interweaving the stories of Tracy Waterhouse, a recently retired detective superintendent now in charge of security at a Leeds mall, and aging actress Tilly Squires. On the same day that Jackson and Tilly are in the mall, Tracy makes a snap decision that will have lasting consequences for everyone. Atkinson injects wit even in the bleakest moments — such as Jackson's newfound appreciation for poetry, evoked in the Emily Dickinson — inspired title — yet never loses her razor-sharp edge. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Review" by , "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, as well as a reliance on coincidence and resistance to neat resolution, both of which run counter to the standard pleasures of the crime genre."
