'An astonishingly complex and moving literary detective story that made me sob but also snort with laughter. It's the sort of novel you have to start rereading the minute you've finished it' Guardian

Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance.

Reviews

  • Too many Characters

    Autor: SalAnn
    The book itself was a good book. I found it hard to keep track of the characters because there was so many of them. And upon conclusion I feel the whole story wasn't tied up properly. I imagine if you like this author, you will love this book. She has a wonderful vast use of the English language.
