The first chapter of When Will There Be Good News immediately pitches the reader into this novel. It is both shocking and compelling.
The fine web of relationships are beautifully written, the characters fully realized.
By the conclusion the characters and events work together like tumblers in a lock.
Finally, every one and everything are in their appropriate place.
I've read Case Histories and One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson and enjoyed both. This is wild new territory for a truly gifted writer.
