Big Sky by Kate Atkinson

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 someone from his past.

Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking new novel, both sharply funny and achingly sad, by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.

Peer & Press Reviews

Kate Atkinson never disappoints and Big Sky, her fifth Jackson Brodie novel, is the stand-out read of the summer.  It’s a masterclass in brilliant writing and whether you’ve read the earlier books in the series or not you’ll enjoy it.

Independent

There’s a lot going on here, all of it rendered with Atkinson’s vastly enjoyable nonchalance…  Atkinson tells a great story, toys with expectations, deceives by omission, blows smoke and also writes like she’s your favourite friend.  Thank goodness the long Jackson Brodie hiatus is over.

New York Times

The brilliance of Big Sky lies in its broad range of memorable characters, each with their own intriguing backstory.  …sharp humour, sparkling prose and acute psychological insight.
