We are thrilled to announce the publication of a new Jackson Brodie novel by Kate Atkinson. Big Sky will be published on 18th June 2019.

Big Sky is a brilliant new literary crime novel from award-winning, number one bestseller Kate Atkinson.  Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-Cambridge Constabulary, currently working as a private investigator, makes a highly anticipated return, nine years after Started Early, Took My Dog.
 

About Jackson Brodie

Jackson Brodie is a private investigator, originally from Yorkshire. A former soldier and policeman he now makes his money working from investigating infidelity and finding missing cats. Jackson's tough-guy exterior belies a deeply empathetic heart. He's unable to resist coming to the rescue and increasingly he becomes a magnet for the bereaved, the lost and the dysfunctional. His ability to connect comes from his own tragic childhood that still haunts him.

Jackson Brodie was played by Jason Isaacs in the TV series Case Histories.
