One Good Turn : (Jackson Brodie) Paperback / softback
Part of the Jackson Brodie series
'An absolute joy to read...the pleasure of One Good Turn lies in the ride, in Atkinson's wry, unvanquished characters, her swooping, savvy, sarcastic prose and authorial joie de vivre' GuardianThe second Jackson Brodie novel (after Case Histories) - literary crime from the number one bestselling Kate Atkinson. It is summer, it is the Edinburgh Festival. People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - a near-homicidal attack 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 murder suspect.
As the body count mounts, each member of the teeming Dickensian cast's story contains a kernel of the next, like a set of nesting Russian dolls.
They are all looking for love or money or redemption or escape: but what each actually discovers is their own true self.
