9780552772457: When Will There be Good News?

On a hot summer day, Joanna Mason's family slowly wanders home along a country lane. A moment later, Joanna's life is changed forever...
On a dark night thirty years later, ex-detective Jackson Brodie finds himself on a train that is both crowded and late. Lost in his thoughts, he suddenly hears a shocking sound...
At the end of a long day, 16-year-old Reggie is looking forward to watching a little TV. Then a terrifying noise shatters her peaceful evening. Luckily, Reggie makes it a point to be prepared for an emergency...
These three lives come together in unexpected and deeply thrilling ways in the latest novel from Kate Atkinson, the critically acclaimed author who Harlan Coben calls "an absolute must-read."

About the Author:

Kate Atkinson won the Whitbread Book of the Year for her first novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum and has been an internationally bestselling author ever since. Her most recent novels, Case Histories and One Good Turn, both also featured the former private detective Jackson Brodie.

From AudioFile:

Ellen Archer definitely has her work cut out. Kate Atkinson's latest novel featuring Jackson Brodie, private detective, weaves together multiple characters and stories that eventually converge. Joanna Hunter, GP and sole survivor of a family massacre 30 years earlier, goes missing, along with her baby. Reggie, her "mother's help," believes she's been kidnapped. Add to the mix a train crash, drugs, mistaken identity, a couple of dogs, a whole lot of thugs, and even a tutor who is rapture-ready. Atkinson successfully juggles all the balls, and Archer is game. Archer's performance is spirited, hilarious, nuanced, and stunning; characters are distinct, and accents are convincing. Especially endearing is Archer's interpretation of Reggie, whose precociousness and Scots brogue give personality to her constant chatter and badgering of the authorities. A.B.
