Fiction. Literature. Mystery. HTML:The first book in Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie Mysteries series, called "The best mystery of the decade" by Stephen King, finds private investigator Jackson Brodie following three seemingly unconnected family mysteries in Edinburg.
Case one: A little girl goes missing in the night.
Case two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack.
Case three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.
Thirty years after the first incident, as private investigator Jackson Brodie begins investigating all three cases, startling connections and discoveries emerge . . .

Like 4 stars i guess. 3.75 if I could. Good mystery book, some fun twists. I think I'm tired of reading so much about England though. ( )

Delicious, brilliant writing, funny and at times horrific story of young detective, Jackson Brody, investigating three historical crimes. ( )

This is the first of Kate Atkinson’s books which I have read, and the first to feature the private detective Jackson Brodie. The book seems to start strangely, and you wonder what is going on: you are presented with three quite distressing ‘case histories’ – a young girl goes missing without trace; a young woman dies in an apparently senseless attack at a solicitor’s office; a new mother murders her husband with an axe. None of these stories seem related, but when the book proper starts, all of these tales are explored and are seen to intertwine. Enjoyable and well-written, with really interesting characterisation.

On the strength of this I went out and bought the other books in the Jackson Brodie series, all as ebooks, at a great price from Kobo Books. ( )

(2004) BBC Masterpiece Mystery series based on this novel brought me to read it. Pretty good procedural that suffers from the constant jumping around of points of view and time the author uses from chapter to chapter. Will give others in series a try, but not a top read. (Booklist) Jackson Brodie, the world's most empathic private eye, who seemingly channels his clients' grief while attempting to provide closure. Addicted to the plaintive songs of female country-and-western singers and heartsick over the breakup of his marriage and his separation from his daughter, Jackson becomes friend and confidant to the people who seek his aid. One of his cases involves the florid, bickering Land sisters, who, after cleaning out their father's house upon his death, are stunned to find the bedraggled blue bunny that was their sister's most prized possession before she went missing 30 years ago. Another case concerns lonely, obese Theo, who, out of concern for his daughter's safety, insisted that she work in his law office rather than as a bartender, only to find that he put her directly in harm's way. As Jackson methodically tracks down decades-old clues, Atkinson employs omniscient narration to step in and out of crime scenes both past and present. Playful humor, an impressive technique, and an offbeat detective with a penchant for weeping are the most obvious pleasures of a page-turner that succeeds in being both brainy and thoroughly entertaining.

We have a woman who once thought she was marrying a “great mathematician” but now finds herself—a mother of four daughters and pregnant again—wondering what her glowering husband “would look like when he was dead.”
 
Atkinson has always been a gripping storyteller, and her complicated narrative crackles with the earthy humor, vibrant characterizations, and shrewd social observations that enlivened her first novel but were largely swamped by postmodern game-playing in Human Croquet (1997) and Emotionally Weird (2000).

She should have done science, not spent all her time with her head in novels. Novels gave you a completely false idea about life, they told lies and they implied there were endings when in reality there were no endings, everything just went on and on and on.
It wasn't that [he] believed in religion, or a God, or an afterlife. He just knew it was impossible to feel this much love and for it to end.
