About this book
Featuring the popular protagonist Jackson Brodie from Atkinson's last bestselling novel, "Case Histories", this is a superior detective story with a cast of unusual characters. "Case Histories" sold over 300,000 copies in paperback, and her first novel "Behind The Scenes At The Museum" won the Whitbread Book Of The Year Award. 'Atkinson, while having fun with the murder- mystery genre, slyly slips us a muted tragedy.' "Sunday Telegraph"
It is the Edinburgh Festival. People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - an incident which changes the lives of everyone involved. Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander - until he becomes a suspect.
