Case Histories (2004) is a detective novel by British author Kate Atkinson and is set in Cambridge, England. It introduces Jackson Brodie, a former police inspector and now private investigator. The plot revolves around three seemingly unconnected family tragedies – the disappearance of a three-year-old girl from a garden; the murder of a husband by his wife with an axe; and the apparently motiveless murder of a solicitor's daughter. Atkinson has since published four additional novels featuring Brodie: One Good Turn (2006), When Will There Be Good News? (2008), Started Early, Took My Dog (2010) and Big Sky (2019).



Kirkus Reviews found this novel revealing the talent Kate Atkinson showed in her first award-winning novel, "back on form"[1] with this story. Atkinson is "a gripping storyteller".[1] This is a "compulsive page-turner that looks deep into the heart of sadness, cruelty, and loss," which "ultimately grants her charming p.i. ... a chance at happiness and some measure of reconciliation with the past."[1]
