    Maisie Dobbs is just one of my favorite mystery series! Winspear does a fabulous job of incorporating the time and place. This book takes place during the Blitz of London and you really get a feel for what that might have been like.

    I think one thing I appreciate most about Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series is the author's allowing her heroine and those in her universe to experience life's ups and downs without pulling any punches. Maisie has experienced tremendous loss in her life, but manages to take the losses and incorporate them into her psyche, growing and learning, however, painfully from each one. Her life representative of our shared human experience, making it is easy to empathize with Maisie and root for ...more

    Maisie and Priscilla are driving an ambulance evenings during the Blitz in 1940 London, when the Luftwaffe is bombing London nearly every night and their help is desperately needed to attend to the many casualties. Catherine, an American reporter, comes along with them on a run one night, and they are impressed by her dedication and forthright personality. Later, Maisie is informed of the reporter's death, and is asked by Scotland Yard investigate, which proves disturbing in more ways than one. ...more

    Maisie is such a dear and reading this is just like catching up with a friend. I’ve been curious how Maisie will fare during the war years- it’s the Blitz and she’s investigating a murdered American journalist and having some personal changes. As always I remain eager for the next installment.
