Waterhouse leads a quiet, ordered life as a retired police detective—a life that takes a surprising turn when she encounters Kelly Cross, a habitual offender, dragging a young child through town. Both appear miserable and better off without each other—or so decides Tracy, in a snap decision that surprises herself as much as Kelly.

Suddenly burdened with a small child, Tracy soon learns her parental inexperience is actually the least of her problems, as much larger ones loom for her and her young charge.

Meanwhile, Jackson Brodie, the beloved detective of novels such as Case Histories, is embarking on a different sort of rescue—that of an abused dog. Dog in tow, Jackson is about to learn, along with Tracy, that no good deed goes unpunished. 

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Atkinson skillfully weaves…story lines together, creating an almost melancholy tale about the passage of time and the ripple effect of consequences of past acts…Atkinson’s prose is so lovely, with startlingly keen observations and wit, even those uninterested in the solving of various whodunits will be spellbound.” Entertainment Weekly
“Crime has given Atkinson the freedom to write an ambitious, panoramic work, full of excitement, color and compassion.” Sunday Times
“Kate Atkinson has done it again: created an extremely readable mystery filled with innuendo, all kinds of literary references and lovable characters…She takes the reader right inside her characters’ brains…Started Early, Took My Dog is filled with wit, humor, surprising coincidences, and twists and turns. Atkinson fans will love it, and it's sure to earn her new devotees.” Vancouver Sun
“An irrepressible exuberance shines throughout…Folds past and present together with Atkinson’s customary flair…Extraordinary combination of wit, plain-speaking, tenderness, and control.” Guardian
“The plot is as pleasingly intricate as ever and just as heavily populated with beautifully summed up characters…Atkinson tells us what’s going on with an imagination that keeps our minds reeling and our jaws dropping.” Toronto Star
“Fans of Atkinson (and Brodie) will cheer for this latest entry, which features the erstwhile PI again on the trail of a convoluted case. Once more, Atkinson weaves multiple narratives and storylines, both past and present, creating a captivating tale.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
