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.

    " This is a great series. Great vacation reads or escape from work reading. "

    " I like each Maisie Dobbs book more and more, although I didn't care as much for this audio book narrator as the last one, and I'm a little peeved that the narrator changes with each installment. This one did a rather annoying voice for Andrew Dean, and I couldn't tell if he was supposed to be annoying or not, and I kept expecting him to turn into a jerk (thankfully, he didn't). We get to know Maisie better with each case. The whole series is recommended if you like historical mysteries that are more about the psychology (of the crime and the crime-solving) than alibis and train schedules. "
