The great Atkinson put her Jackson Brodie detective series on pause for a while, in order to write a remarkable series of wartime novels (“Life After Life,” “A God in Ruins” and “Transcription”); now, finally, he’s back, in the fifth and darkest installment of the series. Reading it last spring, I was struck by Atkinson’s masterful juggling of a vast array of secondary characters, as Brodie investigates a network of sex traffickers in a quiet Yorkshire town. You flit in and out of their various viewpoints, but Brodie’s — warmhearted, weary, haunted by loss — always feels like coming home.
