Atkinson Kate

Big Sky

Penguin Random House, London 2019


Another Jackson Brodie novel and it shows signs of wear. Brodie is 10 years older, not wiser.

The plot is knitted together the same way as in most, probably all the other Brodie stories. In realiter, old lady Atkinson lets her many characters live and speak out her own ideas, rarely original ones.

And Brodie/Atkinson do not care much about the law, murderers and criminals go unpunished, if they have committed their crime out of desperation or noble motives.

So we have to say good-bye to Jackson Brodie and his creator.
