After nine years, Atkinson has brought us the next chapter of Jackson Brodie’s life. We find him a little older, maybe wiser, and now living in a quiet seaside village, occasionally visited by his teenage son. In his role as a private investigator, Brodie has been working more predictable jobs, like his current unfaithful husband, suspicious wife surveillance case, until a chance encounter with a suicidal man, throws him back into a high level investigation along side ex-colleagues from the police force. We enter the sinister world of organized crime, and a roller coaster of intrigue and violence begins. If, like many of us, you’ve been waiting for a new Jackson Brodie novel, this will not disappoint!

Iconoclastic detective Jackson Brodie returns in a triumphant new novel about secrets, sex, and lies.
Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son and an aging Labrador, both at the discretion of his ex-partner Julia. It's picturesque, but there's something darker lurking behind the scenes.
Jackson's current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, is fairly standard-issue, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network -- and back across the path of his old friend Reggie. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking novel by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.
"Thank goodness the long Jackson Brodie hiatus is over." --Janet Maslin, New York Times
