STARTED EARLY, TOOK MY DOG

Author(s): 

Jackson Brodie is back! Fans of Atkinson (and Brodie) will cheer for this latest entry, which features the erstwhile PI again on the trail of a convoluted case. Once more, Atkinson weaves multiple narratives and storylines, both past and present, creating a captivating tale.

Jackson Brodie is searching for details about the biological parents of an adopted woman — biological parents who don’t seem to exist. As he digs deeper, into what turns out to be a cold case from the ‘70s, the number of missing women he’s searching for begins to multiply. Add in a doppelganger and a dog, and once again, he’s in over his head. (REAGAN ARTHUR, Mar., 400 pp., $24.99)
