Book: Case Histories - Kate Atkinson

Blurb: 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. Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, he attempts to unravel three disparate case histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything is connected...
Rating: *****
Review: An excellent read. The story is well-written and you can sympathise with the characters. A good story that I didn't want to put down once I had started reading - try and ensure you have uninterrupted reading time if you are going to start this book. Believe me, you won't want to be disturbed!!
