      Case Histories is a very good book. The occasional small wrong touch stands out all the more because it is so well-conceived and written, and if parts stretch it all too far (the attempts on Brodies's life, for one) and the resolution is just a tad too unbelievably agreeable, the bulk of the book is an exceptional entertainment.

      Case Histories is the first book in Atkinson’s Jackson Brodie series. I chose this novel because I was in the mood for a good mystery, plus I recently read Life After Life, also by Kate Atkinson, and liked the author’s writing style. Unfortunately, my craving for a good mystery was not satisfied. Case Histories introduces an unhappy Jackson Brodie suffering through a particularly sultry Cambridge summer. He’s unhappy with the heat, with Cambridge itself, and with himself—more particularly his failed marriage, among other things. Over the course of the book he struggles to solve three very cold cases.
