    " The first book in this series grabbed me right away. This fourth one? Not so much. I "got it" early on in the book and just slogged through it afterwards to get to the end. The direction the series is taking, with Maisie knowing what's best for everyone in each and every situation, and with guidance from the beyond, is taking me further away from enjoyment thereof. "

    " I enjoyed this installment in the Maisie Dobbs series very much. The series as a whole is so interesting and involving -- can't believe there's only one more to go. This particular mystery...about a painter who may or may not have been accidentally killed...was interesting, though not to the level of the prior two in my estimation. The subplot involving Billy's family was a highlight. "

    " Not as much fun as the first three Maisie Dobbs books. The plots is more complex and Maisie follows many leads that create a backstory but do not contribute to solving the mystery at hand. Maisie continues to become increasingly independent as she mingles with people who introduce her to cultural and social issues that she missed out on during her sheltered adolescence in service and under the tutelage of Maurice. And the Great War continues to cast forth its wounded participants into all sorts of post-war difficulties. The plight of the underclass, personified by Billy Beale and his family, moves toward center stage in this book. "

    " This series is still keeping me engrossed. Maisy Dobbs is a fascinating protagonist and each novel deepens the dimensions of her character. These are not "happy" books, but they are quite satisfying. The author raises serious issues and invites the reader to wrestle with them along with Maisie. "
