Description - Case Histories by Kate Atkinson
The first Jackson Brodie novel- literary crime from the prizewinning, number-one bestselling author of Big Sky and Transcription.
'An astonishingly complex and moving literary detective story that made me sob but also snort with laughter. It's the sort of novel you have to start rereading the minute you've finished it' Guardian

Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, Jackson attempts to unravel three disparate case histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything is connected...
