Oh, Maisy Dobbs, helps Scotland Yard fight corruption in military contracts as she solves the mystery of the death of a neighbor’s son. Of course, there’s a lot more to the story than that. As in many series, its advisable to have read the other books for much of the story line depends on character development. ( )

Back to the best of Maisie Dobbs. A great mystery, wonderful stories of the characters I have come to love. It is a page turner and still brings me to tears and laughter. I am very grateful for all that Jacqueline Winspear's genius. ( )

Wonderful series featuring a female detective who uses a psychological approach to solving problems. It gives easy access to British history circa 1930s & 40s. This novel is not the strongest in the series as it depends too heavily on prior knowledge of the recurring characters. ( )

Book description
amazon ca :Maisie Dobbs—one of the most complex and admirable characters in contemporary fiction (Richmond Times Dispatch)—faces danger and intrigue on the home front during World War II.

During the months following Britain’s declaration of war on Germany, Maisie Dobbs investigates the disappearance of a young apprentice working on a hush-hush government contract. As news of the plight of thousands of soldiers stranded on the beaches of France is gradually revealed to the general public, and the threat of invasion rises, another young man beloved by Maisie makes a terrible decision that will change his life forever.

Maisie’s investigation leads her from the countryside of rural Hampshire to the web of wartime
