In the brilliant new literary thriller by the award-winning author of Case Histories, Jackson Brodie, adored single-dad detective, is caught in a web of mystery following a grisly attack in the street. Two years after the events of Case Histories, which left him a retired millionaire with an occasional girlfriend in Julia, a former client, Jackson has followed her to Edinburgh for its famous summer festival. The incident of road rage he happens to witness sets in motion a chain of events that will pull a wealthy almost-widow, a timid crime novelist, and a female police detective into Jackson's orbit.
