This series gets better and better. Depth of characters, thoughtful, well-plotted. Love Maisie's dad, wish we saw more of him. ( )

I really like this series but I didn't care for this latest book quite as much as some of the others. Don't get me wrong, I still recommend it but I think readers are supposed to come away from the book with more compassion for those with mental illness, but that didn't work for me because the mentally ill characters weren't very likable.

Same as the others. This series is like a very long single novel w/ a very even pace. I find it hard to believe that it would be possible to pay one's rent in London by begging, even in 1932. This book taught me the phrase "Mills bomb". ( )

Another solid mystery and more interesting developments in Masie's character. ( )

Maise is enlisted by the local and federal Govt. to find a killer that threatens to poison many Londoners in 1932. He wasa victim of Govt. experiments with different killer gases. ( )

Like Maisie, the novel’s storytelling style is efficient and humorless, but deeply empathetic.

Epigraph
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat. "We're all mad here.
I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

—LEWIS CARROLL,
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
A short time ago death was the cruel stranger, the visitor with the flannel footsteps ... today it is the mad dog in the house. One eats, one drinks beside the dead, one sleeps in the midst of the dying, one laughs and sings in the company of corpses.

—GEORGES DUHAMEL,
French doctor serving at Verdun in the Great War
