When Will There Be Good News?

Kate Atkinson, Author, Ellen Archer, Read by , read by Ellen Archer. Hachette Audio $34.98 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60024-452-0

The latest Atkinson mystery finds detective Jackson Brodie back in the English countryside, where he becomes caught up in a missing person’s case that forces old memories and past mistakes to the forefront of his mind. Told from a mainly female perspective, both that of detective chief Louise Monroe and victim Joanna Mason, the story is delivered perfectly by narrator Ellen Archer. She is fully and completely aware of the undertones in most of her characters’ voices, and when she captures them, she creates a stirring experience for her audience. As Brodie, Archer is slightly less effective, only because she opts for a straightforward, dry tone that is less flashy. But her portrayal of Reggie, a 16-year-old Scottish boy, is amazingly astute and shaded. A Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, July 28). (Sept.)
