Started Early, Took My Dog (Jackson Brodie Series #4)

Started Early, Took My Dog: A Novel - Kate Atkinson

Jackson Brodie is eternally likable, and Atkinson writes consistently compelling mysteries featuring him and a host of charismatic characters, intricate plots that come together in surprising ways, and stories concerned with place, women, and children. I found this particular novel to be a bit slow to start and loose all around, with perhaps one or two too many characters serving too small a function. But her work is still the only mystery or crime-type fiction I read because she's such an excellent writer!
