In the midst of the hop-picking season in the village of Heronsdene, Kent, Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, undertakes an assignment from James Compton, son of her long-time supporter, Lady Rowan Compton, to look into aspects of a land purchase on his behalf. Quickly drawn into the local community, with its prejudices against the seasonal workers from London and the traveling gypsies who flock to Kent at harvest-time, Maisie soon becomes involved in an effort to discover the source of petty crime in the area, as well as a spate of fires that has blighted Heronsdene for years.

As she is pulled deeper into the investigation, Maisie is increasingly intrigued by the peculiar mood of melancholy and secrecy that shrouds the village, a feeling that is inflamed by the villagers' fear - but just what has caused them to be so afraid? The beloved sleuth must draw on all her training and experience to discover the truth in this gripping, atmospheric installment of the best-selling series. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole | 2/15/2014

    " Another good Maisie Dobbs mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kij | 2/11/2014

    " Another satisfying installment of the only mystery series that I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/29/2014

    " Maisie does not disappoint. This time she is solving a crime in the country among an unscrupulous squire and the gypsies. But Maisie knows gypsies... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/28/2014

    " Listened to this in the car, set after first world war in England. The neat thing about this investigator is her family background with a gypsy grandmother. Lots of information about Romany traditions and culture, but some really sad material about the war. I'll definately read more of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juliet | 1/23/2014

    " Not as good as the last two; very predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/17/2014

    " Each Maisie Dobbs book is better than the last. Ms. Winspear does a marvelous job of creating time and place. This time we are moving into the Great Depression and Maisie must deal with the mysterious death of a family during the war and facing her own loss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 1/9/2014

    " a nice entertaining "in-between" book. The author intertwines many different story lines and then it all comes together at the end, some predictable and a couple that were a surprise. No language or sex which is a treat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma Darragh | 1/1/2014

    " I love Maisie Dobbs more with every mystery she solves. Love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Gillis | 12/31/2013

    " Takes place after World War I in England. Maizie is a detective. 5th in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Underwood | 12/25/2013

    " Maisie Dobbs solves the origin of a series of fires and robberies during the harvestng of hops. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abra | 12/19/2013

    " I am softening on Jacqueline Winspear's semi-psychic post WWI ex nurse woman detective, Maisie Dobbs. This was one of the best of them, so far, with good background (hops picking in Kent) and characters (the Roma, and diddikoi, aka gypsies and mixed gypsy-gorja). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 9/21/2013

    " Set in 1933 England, Maizy Dobbs is a private investigator and a psychologist. A sensible woman with a kind heart. Terrific reader. Great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geoeng51 | 9/18/2013

    " An interesting twist in plot and a more independent Maisy. The physical and social setting for the story are completely outside of my experience, and thus by themselves intriguing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl S. | 5/22/2013

    " Even though this series is dark, I have enjoyed the stories of a young nurse who served on the front lines in WWI trying to build an independant life while overcoming her war experiences and the loss of the man she loved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 4/12/2013

    " Mystery set in WWII England "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 3/24/2013

    " This is the first one I actually figured out! Perhaps I'm getting used to her writing style. One more to go! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dina | 3/14/2013

    " Another great read. I'm really glad Maurice is back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisha (lishie) | 12/4/2012

    " I think this may be my favorite of the series so far. I love Maisie's character more and more and this one really built on her relationships well while playing out the mystery/story. I thought the actual case was very good too, including the Heronsdene "characters" we got to meet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Malia | 7/22/2012

    " I didn't love the supernatural element to Maisie's detection work-- dowsing anyone? I don't think this is a bad book at all, just not to my tastes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 11/12/2011

    " I thought this was another solid entry in the series. This time we get to travel out to the country for hop-picking, and we also find out a little more about where Maisie gets her special "sensing" abilities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine Lynch | 10/26/2011

    " Another great book by Winspear. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ali | 10/23/2011

    " I love these books! They are detective novels - very good historical stuff set post-WWI in Britain. Very strong female lead character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 9/25/2011

    " Brilliant as they always are. Mystery mingled with emotion and universal lessons that make you think. Short enough to feel you have time to read it, and the plot moves along at a pace that never leaves wishing you could skip ahead. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 8/13/2011

    " Gypsies, hop-pickers and a series of small crimes...nothing is as it seems in this small village. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/23/2011

    " During stressful times I read Maisie Dobbs. She never disappoints. A simple satisfying read. I learn something in every book. This time it was about gypsies. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 5/16/2011

    " Good book! I think some of the character relationships would make more sense if I had started from the beginning of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maia | 5/13/2011

    " As usual, excellent historical mystery from J. Winspear. A bit darker than most of hers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/12/2011

    " The gypsy angle was almost too much, but managed to still work in the context of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacky | 5/7/2011

    " I thought this might be the best - as if JW is getting into her stride (rather than the usual #5 wobble!)
    Loved the gypsy history, and the last scene - of Maisie dancing to Django Reinhardt's music on her new gramophone - stays with me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 5/7/2011

    " It's only a three-star read but I gave it four because I really liked the dog. Dogs rule!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/28/2011

    " Fifth in a series of English mysteries. Enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 4/10/2011

    " This is a mystery set in the UK around 1930. A lot of it has to do with the psychology of war and how people can be emotionally and psychologically warped by violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 4/6/2011

    " Even better than the last one for all you nurses & history buffs... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AnnaMay | 3/25/2011

    " I really liked learning more about the gypsies and 'hop-picking.' What a tragic story, though. I like the variety Winspear's books present and am looking forward to seeing where she goes with her series. I'll read a few other books first, then for sure pick up her #6. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 3/3/2011

    " Winspear continues to spin lovely stories from the time period after WWI. I like her characters who encompass all walks of life. I always learn something from her books. "
