Read while home alone? sure
Tissues needed? not really
Overall rating: 5 stars
In book 3 of the Maisie Dobbs series “Psychologist and Inspector” Maisie seeks to uncover the truth about two young English soldiers who didn’t come home. Her efforts are hampered by the secrecy of officials, being followed, revisiting her own service in WWI France, and even attempts on her life. Will Maisie’s usual cool, determined demeanor overcome these obstacles as she pursues the truth?
I love Maisie Dobbs! Her time seems more proper, so even in the midst of murder and mayhem it somehow appears gentler. It’s been awhile since I read the early books in this series, and though I enjoy the later books, this was even better. There’s suspense, danger, and excitement, as well as quiet introspection—a masterfully woven story!
