Publisher Description

The first book in Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie Mysteries series, called "The best mystery of the decade" by Stephen King, finds private investigator Jackson Brodie following three seemingly unconnected family mysteries in Edinburg.

Case one: A little girl goes missing in the night.

Case two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack.

Case three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

Thirty years after the first incident, as private investigator Jackson Brodie begins investigating all three cases, startling connections and discoveries emerge . . .

Customer Reviews

Nancy from Petaluma ,

Case Histories is a great vacation read

Several mysteries (a missing child, a randomly murdered young woman, another woman who continually changes identities) all come together in a mostly satisfying read by a compelling author. I wasn't ready for the end, but maybe I'll find closure in the next book starring private detective Jackson. Can't wait to see what Jackson will be up to then.

A surprisingly good journey

Distinctive style. Very good writing & good characterizations (I would like to know Jackson). Plot a little far reaching but always engaging —- themes a tad heavy at times but also surprisingly tender & funny at others.

Absolutely fantastic

Case Histories is one of those rare books (think Stieg Larsson Trilogy, Tana French's series) where giving a five star review is so beneath the level of brilliance, it seems unfair. This is truly a masterful work.
