Reviews

"History comes alive when a character you think of as a friend is in the thick of the action. That's how Jacqueline Winspear keeps her Maisie Dobbs series so fresh."--New York Times Book Review
"The wartime details ... transport us with ease to a milieu where danger is omnipresent but--thanks to the presence of steadfast figures like Dobbs and her like-spirited colleagues--so is hope." --Wall Street Journal
"Maisie Dobbs is always looking for truth and the underlying motives in her cases. Her stories are ones that this reviewer always wants to read because of her character, values and thoughts on life.... A story about WWII and England that is close to the heart."--Bookreporter.com
"Winspear's protagonist is indomitable and vulnerable, brilliant and kind."--Chelsea Clinton in Entertainment Weekly
"A novel that appeals equally to the intellect and the emotions, To Die but Once advances Maisie's engaging story and reaffirms Winspear's eminence in her field.... [A] radiant series."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"First-rate."--Booklist
"Winspear has created another rich reading experience for Maisie's many fans, but this title could be seen as entry point for new fans as well. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy a thoughtful mystery."--Library Journal, starred review
"In addition to providing a very good mystery, Winspear does a smashing job describing the bravery exhibited by everyday Britons as the fear of invasion becomes ever more real."--Kirkus
"The novelist paints a fascinating picture of life in England at the dawn of war.... Resourceful Maisie remains an endearingly complex character."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
