Kate Atkinson on form again, 8 Aug 2006
One Good Turn is a sort of follow on to Case Histories, including some of the same main protagonists and as such marks a real path for Kate Atkinson into the murder mystery genre. It follows some of the themes set off in Case Histories but stands alone fabulously too. It is a must for anyone who is going to or has ever been to the Edinburgh Festival! However as an adoring fan of Atkinson I miss the more whimsical style of her earlier novells and this darker, murder orientated style isn't nearly as inspiring in my view but is still fantasticaly compelling.
