After a bomb explodes in London and a threatening letter is sent to those in power mentioning a certain psychologist/detective, Maisie Dobbs is brought in to assist in the investigation. She's not treated with the greatest respect by the police, but of course her investigation uncovers the most valuable leads. As usual it's a good mystery, but the best parts of the book are the insight into life in Britain at the time, and the terrible aftermath of war (both on the country as a whole, and on individuals).
