2010 book 59

Kate Atkinson's When Will There Be Good News?
I found out recently that Atkinson has a fourth Jackson Brodie book coming out in August (yay!) which made me want to reread the last one--which, on rereading, I would totally argue is the best of the three. It's great how Atkinson sprinkles humor and literary references into what is otherwise a fairly grim story involving a guy murdering a family, a horrible train crash, a swimming pool accident, and seriously crazed domestic abuse. Plus Jackson Brodie, the hardened cop Louise Monroe, and awesome and intrepid mother's helper Reggie. I hope we get to see the latter two characters in the new book too.
