Publisher's Summary

It is the Edinburgh Festival. 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 his or her true self.
Unpausable and triumphant, One Good Turn is a sharply intelligent listen that is also percipient, funny, and totally satisfying.

Fantastic audio book

This was such a treat of a story to listen to on all the long drives we've done lately. We hung on every word and revelled in Steven Crossley's delivery. Highly recommended.

Good writing but too much woolgathering

I like the Atkinson novels but in this case I was a bit disappointed, the technique she use of many chatacthers telling the story is ok but it has ben used too much and the story has lost some suspense. I have 4 stars because she can write and create a good setting.
