The highly anticipated return of Jackson Brodie, ex-military, ex-Cambridge Constabulary, now private investigator, 'a hero for men and women alike'*.
Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village in North Yorkshire, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son Nathan and ageing Labrador Dido, both at the discretion of his former partner Julia. It's a picturesque setting, but there's something darker lurking behind the scenes.
Jackson's current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, seems straightforward, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network-and back into the path of someone from his past. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking new novel, both sharply funny and achingly sad, by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.
'Jason Issacs - best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films - [is] a popular and adept narrator, who has done all five Brodie novels with great flair. This book has all Atkinson's genius hallmarks: funny, sad, heartwarming and gripping.' Daily Mail

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We’re thrilled to welcome back Kate Atkinson’s iconic hero Jackson Brodie. Now living a gentle life investigating cheating spouses by the sea, the former detective finds himself hauled back to crime’s cutting edge after helping a suicidal man on a Yorkshire cliff. From here, Kate Atkinson shows off her ability to weave several delicate narrative threads together as Brodie begins to get to the heart of an undercover operation with ties to an underworld sex industry. Atkinson is also exceptionally good at springing surprises on both Brodie and the listeners of this audiobook—this is a dazzling return for her buccaneering detective.
