Case Histories is Kate Atkinson's first foray into crime fiction, and introduces the popular Jackson Brodie, who returns in One Good Turn, When Will There Be Good News? and Started Early, Took My Dog. A six-part BBC1 drama series starring Jason Isaacs as Jackson Brodie and set in Edinburgh was released in autumn 2011.

A sweltering, 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. Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, Jackson attempts to unravel three disparate Case Histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything is connected...

"Her best book yet, 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 "Sharp humour, together with a number of unexpected twists makes this a typically pacey and intelligent read" Daily Mail "A greedy feast of a story by a masterful author...A profound, exciting and lingering read" Daily Express "Triumphant...Her best book yet...A tragi-comedy for our times" Sunday Telegraph "To read it is to enter a hall of mirrors...Part complex family drama, part mystery, it winds up having more depth and vividness than ordinary thrillers and more thrills than ordinary fiction...A wonderfully tricky book" New York Times
