In the third novel of this best-selling series, London investigator Maisie Dobbs faces grave danger as she returns to the site of her most painful WWI memories to resolve the mystery of a pilot's death.

Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone. Alexander McCall Smith's Precious Ramotswe. Every once in a while, a detective bursts on the scene who captures readers' hearts, and imaginations, and doesn't let go. And so it was with Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs, who made her debut just two years ago in the eponymously titled first book of the series, and is already on her way to becoming a household name.

A deathbed plea from his wife leads Sir Cecil Lawton to seek the aid of Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator. As Maisie soon learns, Agnes Lawton never accepted that her aviator son was killed in the Great War, a torment that led her not only to the edge of madness but to the doors of those who practice the dark arts and commune with the spirit world. In accepting the assignment, Maisie finds her spiritual strength tested, as well as her regard for her mentor, Maurice Blanche. The mission also brings her together once again with her college friend Priscilla Evernden, who served in France and who lost three brothers to the war, one of whom, it turns out, had an intriguing connection to the missing Ralph Lawton.

    " My favorite Maisie Dobbs book thus far. Perhaps a bit more predictible than the last two, but I finally actually like and identify with Maisie in a way that I had not in the prior books. Sometimes Winspear gets a touch verbose in the descriptions of things (in this one clothes seemed to be a big deal). But for people who like that style of writing then they'd appreciate it. "

    " As excellent as the previous two--maybe even better. "

    " The second Maisie Dobbs book I've read (I missed the first one), it's a good read. A bit denser than your typical cosy mystery, but entertaining and surprising. Each Maisie story is as much a journey into Maisie's life as it is about the crime she's solving. Sometimes it's a bit heavy on the personal drama (Maisie has a breakdown in this one) and spiritualism (like creating psychic sheilds against ghosts) but the core is solid. "

    " Another great mystery in the Maise Dobbs series. "
