The return of Jackson Brodie, ex-military, ex-Cambridge Constabulary, now private investigator, ‘a hero for men and women alike’. Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village in North Yorkshire, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son Nathan and ageing Labrador Dido, both at the discretion of his former partner Julia. It’s a picturesque setting, but there’s something darker lurking behind the scenes. Jackson’s current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, seems straightforward, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network – and back into the path of his old friend Reggie.

‘Like all good detectives, he is a hero for men and women alike.’ The Times

‘Laced with Atkinson’s sharp, dry humour, and one of the joys of the Brodie novels has always been that they are so funny.’ Observer
