Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance.

Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, Jackson attempts to unravel three disparate case histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything is connected.

Journal Entry 4 by wingmarmee463wing at Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Thursday, November 11, 2021
In this murder mystery Kate Atkinson gives the reader nuanced, understated and well constructed storytelling. The story is beautifully written, with rich descriptions of characters, marked by their sheer ordinariness and everyday routines, lives that become extraordinary with the impact of death, brutal violence and the terrifying. There are numerous apparently irrelevant digressions, but which turn out to be anything but. A wonderfully immersive and offbeat read, riddled with black and wry humour.
