I'd been looking forward to reading Kate Atkinson's When Will There Be Good News since fininshing the previous title, One Good Turn., which I really enjoyed. This latest title about Jackson Brodie and the characters he gets involved with is rather different from the usual crime/mystery/thriller type of read, much more engrossing for me than those, with lots of interesting characters, strange happenings and coincidences. I was fascinated with the young Reggie, a very bright girl from a somewhat deprived background, whose tenacity in following up on events proves extremely helpful, if at times a tad dangerous. I do hope Jackson brodie gets his life sorted out a bit in the next story ( if there is one)
