Reviews

"Books in the Maisie Dobbs series are always as much about the heroine's ongoing journey as they are about the mysteries she solves, and it's the big changes in her life that make this 15th 'Maisie' book one of the best."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Winning."--USA Today
"Excellent.... In Winspear's capable hands, Maisie has evolved into a deeply sympathetic character. Readers will eagerly await her next outing."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"The London blitz is the backdrop to Winspear's latest as the inimitable Maisie Dobbs investigates the death of Catherin Saxon, an intrepid American journalist determined to document wartime Britain's hardships for the folks back home. An immersive tale of wartime grit and grief."--Booklist
"Everything in this series turns on the psychological traumas of war. That's what gives Maisie's sometimes prosaic cases their sturdy backbone and air of urgency--that and Maisie's own dynamic character. Hang on to your helmet and carry on, girl."--New York Times Book Review
"Advances Maisie's inspiring activities, highlights the bravery of an embattled people during the Second World War, and intimates that lessons from that period have yet to be learned."--Kirkus
"Offers an intense portrayal of how ordinary British residents attempted to manage their ordinary lives amid extraordinary and traumatic circumstances. Maisie solves the crime (naturally), but just as compelling is her own personal journey, which leaves her poised to begin yet another new chapter of her eventful life."--BookReporter
"Through it all she has solved sometimes harrowing cases with a mixture of intelligence, intuition, determination and compassion that makes her -- and it's an odd compliment, I know -- one of the most soothing characters in crime fiction. Reading a Maisie Dobbs book is a little like spending time with an old friend you don't see often enough, if your old friend's gig is tracking down and capturing criminals."--Tampa Bay Times
