    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. Jackson has never felt at home in Cambridge, and has a failed marriage to prove it.

    Brilliant, but such a shame it's been abridged

    'Case Histories' is a great story (or series of inter-connected stories) featuring the charismatic Jackson Brodie (so excellently given voice by Jason..Show More »

    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. With Case Histories, Kate Atkinson showed how brilliantly she could explore the crime genre and make it her own. In One Good Turn she takes her masterful plotting one step further.

    Abridged!

    A very good author, and well narrated, but sadly I didn't realise that it was an abridged version. Totally ruined it for me.Can we please have a full ..Show More »

    In rural Devon, six-year-old Joanna Mason witnesses an appalling crime. Thirty years later, the man convicted is released from prison. In Edinburgh, 16-year-old Reggie works as a nanny for a G.P. But Dr Hunter has gone missing and Reggie seems to be the only person who is worried. Across town, Detective Chief Inspector Louise Monroe is also looking for a missing person, unaware that hurtling towards her is an old friend - Jackson Brodie - himself on a journey that becomes fatally interrupted.

    Loved it

    I've not read the print version so can't comment. But I have read other books by her and enjoyed both ways!

    A day like any other for security chief Tracy Waterhouse, until she makes a purchase she hadn't bargained for. One moment of madness is all it takes for Tracy's humdrum world to be turned upside down, the tedium of everyday life replaced by fear and danger at every turn. Witnesses to Tracy's Faustian exchange in the Merrion Centre in Leeds are Tilly, an elderly actress teetering on the brink of her own disaster, and Jackson Brodie, who has returned to his home county in search of someone else's roots.

    The best one of the series

    This is my favourite Jackson Brodie story. I love the story of Tracy and her relationship with the little girl. This however is just a small part of..Show More »
