Big Sky by Kate Atkinson
About the Book
Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son and an aging Labrador, both at the discretion of his ex-partner Julia. It's picturesque, but there's something darker lurking behind the scenes.
Jackson's current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, is fairly standard-issue, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network -- and back across the path of his old friend Reggie. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking novel by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today.

About the Crime Club
Please Note: due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Crime Club will meet virtually until further notice. Email email@example.com if you are not already on the crime club email list but would like to receive information about upcoming virtual meetings.
The Crime Club reads one paperback mystery a month and its discussions are led by Joanne Picard. We typically meets the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. It's free and everyone is welcome to join. We talk about the characters, the plot, the setting, and the language. We reveal why we liked the book or why we didn't. Sometimes we agree and sometimes we don't. Mostly we have a good time talking crime.
Each selection of the mystery book discussion group is discounted 20% at the Odyssey Bookshop. Click on the link below to order online. Use code BOOKCLUB to apply the discount at checkout.
