Description

Maisie Dobbs--a female investigator every bit as brainy and battle-hardened as Lisbeth Salander (Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air), faces danger and intrigue on the home front during World War II in this poignant entry (#14) in Jacqueline Winspear's New York Times bestselling series--a series that seems to get better with every entry (Tom Holland, Wall Street Journal).

Spring 1940. With Britons facing what has become known as the Bore War--nothing much seems to have happened yet--Maisie Dobbs is asked to investigate the disappearance of a local lad, a young apprentice craftsman working on a hush-hush government contract. As Maisie's inquiry reveals a possible link to the London underworld, another mother is worried about a missing son--but this time the boy in question is one beloved by Maisie.

As USA Today's Robert Bianco says, with clarity and economy, Winspear lays the historical groundwork. . . . The setting matters, but what may matter more is the lovely, sometimes poetic way Winspear pushes her heroine forward. . . . May she shine on the literary scene for many books to come.
