CURRENTLY READING: When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson
After watching and thoroughly enjoying the BBC series “Case Histories” with Jason Isaacs, I felt compelled to read Kate Atkinson’s When Will There Be Good News?. The enchanting setting of Edinburgh and the quirky character of Jackson Brodie are just too intriguing to pass up.
In rural Devon, six-year-old Joanna Mason witnesses an appalling crime.
Thirty years later the man convicted of the crime is released from prison.
In Edinburgh, sixteen-year-old Reggie works as a nanny for a G.P. But Dr Hunter has gone missing and Reggie seems to be the only person who is worried.
Across town, Detective Chief Inspector Louise Monroe is also looking for a missing person, unaware that hurtling towards her is an old friend — Jackson Brodie — himself on a journey that becomes fatally interrupted.
