A disparate assortment of characters witnesses a traffic accident leading to "road rage" during Edinburgh's summer arts festival. One is Jackson Brodie, the private eye from Case Histories. This is more a comic novel than a genuine mystery, enhanced by Atkinson's insight into her characters' motivations and social environs. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

Hooray! Harry Bosch is back – investigating two complex but disparate cases. Retired from the LAPD, Harry’s a private detective, hired by a reclusive millionaire to find a possible heir; he’s also a volunteer investigator at a small, underfunded police department, tracking a terrifying serial rapist. One of Connelly’s very best. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
