Case Histories: Kate Atkinson

I got this book free from ALA, so there were a couple of typos which I'm sure Ms. Atkinson has fixed by now.

I enjoyed this book tremendously. Each chapter represents a different thread that alternates between approximately 3 different stories about mysteries that are being solved by the main character. Jackson is the name of the Private Investigator who goes about solving the crimes in typical fashion. I enjoyed the fact that Jackson was actively thinking about his future, and wanting to break out of the business and retire happily in France. Although you definitely got the impression that never would happen. The individual stories themselves were interesting, and the author devoted the same amount of time to each.
