I bought a 2nd copy of this as a Secret Santa, so was keen to read to compare reviews :)

(9/12) This is a sequel to ‘Case Histories’ in that ex-detective Jackson Brodie turns up again, this time in Edinburgh during festival time, struggling with his own idleness (independently rich...see end of previous book) and a high maintenance actress partner. As in all good crime books, death, violence, intrigue and chaos find Brodie, although he doesn’t do a good job of keeping out of the way! The coincidences became a bit tiresome and comic (deliberate?) in the end, although it all added to a complex, although never quite top-drawer, mystery. The final twist was good and fitted well with the Russion-doll metaphor; plots within plots like the Matryoshka.
