Reviews

  • "An absolute joy to read...the pleasure of One Good Turn lies in the ride, in Atkinson's wry, unvanquished characters, her swooping, savvy, sarcastic prose and authorial joie de vivre."

    Guardian
  • "Atkinson is frequently very funny...while the tone stays light, the plot continues to darken....manages to be that rarest of things - a good literary novel and a cracking holiday read."

    Observer
  • "It doesn't really matter in which genre Atkinson chooses to write. Her subject is always the irrecoverable loss of love and how best to continue living once you have glumly recognised that "That was what the world was like, things improved but they didn't get better." Her gift is in presenting this unnerving and subversive philosophy as a dazzling form of entertainment."

    Sunday Times
  • "Atkinson, while having fun with the murder-mystery genre, slyly slips us a muted tragedy."

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "High suspense and rattling pace...charged with adrenalin and a spry humour."
