I loved the first two Jackson Brodie books, I thought this was AWFUL, I stuck at it, it still had a kind of page turning quality, but the standard of the story and the intertwining story lines was pretty poor in my view. Loose ends, inconsistencies, great leaps of faith to get from point A to err... point somewhere else.
Not good at all. Sorry.Read moreLess

Really enjoyed this book - I found it kept me turning the pages and so I read it very quickly. I enjoy Kate Atkinson's books and it was interesting meeting some of her characters from previous books in this one as well. I'm not that keen on detective stories but this one is very good.Read moreLess
