The fourth novel featuring Jackson Brodie from the No.1 bestselling author of When Will There Be Good News?, winner of Richard & Judy Best Read of the Year
Kate Atkinson's most recent novel, When Will There Be Good News? was voted Richard & Judy Book Best Read of the Year. After Case Histories and One Good Turn, it was her third novel to feature the former private detective Jackson Brodie, who makes a welcome return in Started Early, Took My Dog. She won the Whitbread Book of the Year prize for her first novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, and has been a critically acclaimed international bestselling author ever since.
Investigator Jackson Brodie just can't seem to stay retired. His fourth outing has him tracking down the birth parents of his latest client. Along the way, he rescues a dog, which has its own problems. Add to the mix a retired childless ex-cop who buys a toddler from a junkie. It's complicated, but narrator Graeme Malcolm masterfully handles the material. (LJ 7/11) (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
