Reviews

"Maisie Dobbs is a revelation." --Alexander McCall Smith, Author of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

"Those unfamiliar with the Maisie Dobbs series are best advised to start here and work their way backward. . . . An Incomplete Revenge shows Maisie at the top of her detecting form." --Newsday

"A smart, pragmatic private investigator and psychologist with extraordinary empathic sensitivity . . . Every page of this novel is dense with affectionately rendered period detail. Winspear deftly intertwines multiple story lines. The tale becomes increasingly gripping as the novel progresses toward a truly moving ending." --The Boston Globe

"Winspear's lively and graceful prose, strong sense of time and place, and her ability to create believable and sympathetic characters make the book a joy to read." --The Denver Post

"A pleasure . . . This nuanced series explores England in the aftermath of World War I, when millions of women who lost their husbands, lovers, and sons were left to make their own ways. Maisie is one of that group, and her way is an appealing one." --The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

"A compelling and intriguing puzzle . . . Winspear infuses this moving novel with wisdom, restrained emotion and, as is her custom, issues of morality." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Intriguing . . . Fascinating . . . Skillfully drawn." --The Washington Times

"One of the more robust entries in the historical mystery category." --The Seattle Times

"Often eloquent and deeply human." --The Providence Journal
