CBR4 #34 Case Histories by Kate Atkinson

Case one: A little girl goes missing in the night. 
Case two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. 
Case three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.
Thirty years after the first incident, as private investigator Jackson Brodie begins investigating all three cases, startling connections and discoveries emerge . . .

I read this book on a recommendation. I thought the premise of the book - interweaving the 3 cases together was an unique concept.  Unfortunately, I didn't really like the main character.  The book was organized in a weird chronological order and as a reader you never knew what the next chapter would bring.  Atkinson does capture well how survivors cope with a death of a loved one.
