In the thrilling new novel by the New York Times bestselling
author of An Incomplete Revenge, Maisie Dobbs must catch a madman before
he commits murder on an unimaginable scale.
It’s Christmas Eve 1931. On the way to see a client, Maisie
Dobbs witnesses a man commit suicide on a busy London street. The following
day, the prime minister’s office receives a letter threatening a massive loss
of life if certain demands are not met—and the writer mentions Maisie by name.
After being questioned and cleared by Detective Chief Superintendent Robert
MacFarlane of Scotland Yard’s elite Special Branch, she is drawn into
MacFarlane’s personal fiefdom as a special adviser on the case. Meanwhile,
Billy Beale, Maisie’s trusted assistant, is once again facing tragedy as his
wife, who has never recovered from the death of their young daughter, slips
further into melancholia’s abyss. Soon Maisie becomes involved in a race
against time to find a man who proves he has the knowledge and will to inflict
death and destruction on thousands of innocent people. And before this
harrowing case is over, Maisie must navigate a darkness not encountered since
she was a nurse in wards filled with shell-shocked men.
In Among the Mad, Jacqueline Winspear combines a
heart-stopping story with a rich evocation of a fascinating period to create
her most compelling and satisfying novel yet.
