Publisher's Summary

It is the Edinburgh Festival. People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - an incident which changes the lives of everyone involved.
Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander - until he becomes a suspect.
With Case Histories, Kate Atkinson showed how brilliantly she could explore the crime genre and make it her own. In One Good Turn she takes her masterful plotting one step further. Like a set of Russian dolls each thread of the narrative reveals itself to be related to the last. Her Dickensian cast of characters are all looking for love or money and find it in surprising places. As ever with Atkinson what each one actually discovers is their true self. Unputdownable and triumphant, One Good Turn is a sharply intelligent read that is also percipient, funny, and totally satisfying.

A very good author, and well narrated, but sadly I didn't realise that it was an abridged version. Totally ruined it for me.Can we please have a full version?

Would have loved to have had an unabridged edition

This was fantastic. Kate Atkinson at her best. Jackson Brodie is a wonderful character, brilliantly narrated ("Hello to Jason Isaacs"). I wish this had been available unabridged when I downloaded - I think there is a an unabridged edition available now, however. Sometimes I didn't feel I was getting the full story, hence only 3 stars.
