This novel has a sprawling cast of characters and it takes quite a while to comprehend how they are related to one another. The plot gets tighter and tighter and even a bit amusing as you get near the end, so hang in there.

Atkinson has an amazing ability to show you the inner worlds of very diverse people, and I love that about her writing. In the first third of the novel, though, there were quite a lot of British in-references that I could not understand in the slightest.

Overall, a pleasing read. Maybe my second or third Jackson Brodie book (he is Atkinson's detective), and I would definitely try another!
