Summary

Summary

A Washington Post Top 10 Book of the Month

A Crime Reads Pick of Most Anticipated Books of 2019

A Booklist Pick of the Week

Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside town, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son and an aging Labrador, both at the discretion of his ex-wife Julia. It's a picturesque village filled with vacationers and well-off locals, but there's something darker behind the scenes: a quietly, wildly successful business in human trafficking.
Jackson's current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, would seem unrelated, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network - and back across the path of his old friend Reggie, now a police detective with her own way of doing things. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking novel by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A giant mosaic of people and stories that fit perfectly together in a complex, beautiful pattern, offering tremendous reading pleasure on every single page.” Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author
“Atkinson is one of the best writers working today, and her crime fiction, including novels featuring the now-retired Scottish inspector Jackson Brodie, rank among the finest. What takes Big Sky up a notch is its urgent, relevant subject matter: pedophilia rings and how they damage survivors for the rest of their lives.” Washington Post
“Atkinson masterfully juggles Brodie’s consciousness with that of numerous other characters…You flit in and out of their various viewpoints, but Brodie’s—warmhearted, weary, haunted by loss—always feels like coming home.” Seattle Times
"‘A small cast of characters collides and careens in a manner that straddles Greek tragedy and screwball comedy. The humor is sly rather than slapstick, and Atkinson is keenly interested in inner lives and motivations…but the human heart remains the central mystery.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“We marvel at Atkinson’s rare ability to create in a relatively few but stunningly deft brushstrokes at least a half-dozen characters with the depth and complexity to own their own novel. Another dazzler from a writer whose talents know no bounds.” Booklist (starred review)
