by Kate Atkinson

Open iTunes to Buy


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.

Is this abridged?

Is this book abridged? Running time seems too short and I hesitate
to buy it if it is.


I am a huge fan of Atkinson's previous novel, Case Histories. I loved the characters, I loved the twists and loved how it all came together in the end. One Good Turn, however, holds no so such charm. I found it an impossible read. At one point I simply gave up trying to figure out where I was in the plot and who was talking. I felt like I kept coming back to the same scene, again and again. Avoid.


Kate Atkinson's books should never be abridged, and unfortunately this one is. I enjoyed Case Histories but I couldn't imagine reading(listening) to an abridged version of it. I won't be buying this in audible form.
