it was ok

I typically really enjoy the Jackson Brodie books but this one fell flat for me. Mainly for two reasons: one is that I read the JB books because I love the character of Jackson Brodie...and in this book, Atkinson almost used him as a side character. His role was minimal and when he did appear, he added almost nothing to the story. Second is that while I'm normally okay with an author not tying up 'all' the ends, not giving the reader information on who the kid really way or what happened to the women that Tracie took her from was quite aggravating to me. I pushed through the book hoping it would redeem itself in the end and then when that puzzle wasn't cleared up, I felt quite cheated at having made the effort.
