Niamh is pronounced "Neve." It's an Irish name, because Jackson's mum was Irish. Listening to this narrator pronounce it wrong throughout the (really good) novel is irritating.
Another wonderful audiobook edition of Kate Atkinson's fabulous Jackson Brodie series. By now, if we've stayed with the series, we're all in love with Jackson Brodie - that brooding, unlucky former policeman who never seems to get the girl of his dreams (although he does get *a* girl every now and then). Witty, well-crafted, with a serious undertow... I loved this novel as much as I loved the others in the series and can't wait for the next one. My only regret is the loss of the perfect Jason Isaacs as narrator (hello to Jason Isaacs!) but Nicholas Bell does a fine job anyway.

I loved this book. The characters, including the dog, have real depth to them and are beautifully portrayed, and the plot is sensitive and enjoyable. I took to all the characters - poor old Tilly, the ex-copper Tracy, and Jackson himself. There are some lovely touches - little Courtney and her fairy costume, old Harry the fixer baking pies, these all make the characters real. Kate Atkinson has written a really ripping yarn that kept me listening to the very end. I enjoyed the reader too, despite the fact that he does not know how to pronounce Niamh (Neeve) - perhaps not everyone listening will notice. I can't wait to listen to another Jackson Brodie story.

If you have read the other books in this series you will know what to expect - multiple story lines, with Jackson in the middle of them all, that somehow come together in the end. I hope there will be another book - as I have really enjoyed this series.
