People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - an incident which changes the lives of everyone involved. Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander - until he becomes a suspect. With "Case Histories", Kate Atkinson showed how brilliantly she could explore the crime genre and make it her own. In "One Good Turn", she takes her masterful plotting one step further. Like a set of Russian dolls, each thread of the narrative reveals itself to be related to the last. Her Dickensian cast of characters are all looking for love or money and find it in surprising places. As ever with Atkinson what each one actually discovers is their true self. Unputdownable and triumphant, "One Good Turn" is a sharply intelligent read that is also percipient, funny, and totally satisfying.Hide synopsis

You will enjoy this suspense tale by Atkinson not only for the mystery plot but also the wry humor with which she laces her novels. You become interested in the characters as well as the storyline. Her previous novel Case Histories is also one you will want to read if you enjoy this one.
Okay, the novel received EXTRAVAGANT praise. Okay, I began to read it with enormous anticipation and the prose is superb. But. . . It wasn't the stream-of-conscious details of each character's thoughts that weighed me down, although enough IS enough. It was the dampening effect of their personalities ...
I greatly enjoyed this sequel to Case Histories, which i also loved. The characters are vivid and sympathetic -- I like the way she moved the narrative point of view around, so that the story unfolds through multiple perspectives. The Edinburgh setting was beautifully evoked. i have to confess I had ...
