“Messenger of Truth” is the 4th Maisie Dobbs mystery. At the request of his twin sister, Maisie investigates the death of an artist that has already been ruled an accidental death by the police. She learns all that she can from his family and friends and studies his art to paint her own mental picture of the victim. Maisie needs to understand his life in order to determine how he died.

The mystery is a good one and Winspear transports her readers to 1930s England with atmosphere as pervasive as the London fog. As in the other Maisie Dobbs novels, the after effects of WWI on many of the characters as well as on Maisie herself, is a major theme.

If you have enjoyed the previous books in this series, you will probably like this one as well, though I don’t think it is Ms. Winspear’s strongest effort.
