Maisie Dobbs faces danger and intrigue on the home front during World War II in this poignant entry in Jacqueline Winspear’s New York Times bestselling series.

Spring 1940. With Britons facing what has become known as “the Bore War”—nothing much seems to have happened yet—Maisie Dobbs is asked to investigate the disappearance of a local lad, a young apprentice craftsman working on a “hush-hush” government contract. As Maisie’s inquiry reveals a possible link to the London underworld, another mother is worried about a missing son—but this time the boy in question is one beloved by Maisie.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Winspear fans will find much to like.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Maisie…is a wonderful creation, representative of her era while being at the same time a thoroughly modern woman. The mystery in this book is cleverly designed, too, allowing the author to explore the environment in England in the early, quiet days of WWII—the so-called phony war, before the Blitz—and to explore England’s 1940s-era criminal underground. A first-rate historical mystery.”

    Booklist

  • “In addition to providing a very good mystery, Winspear does a smashing job describing the bravery exhibited by everyday Britons as the fear of invasion becomes ever more real.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A series that seems to get better with every entry.”

    Wall Street Journal, praise for the series

  • “A detective series to savor.”

    Time, praise for the series

  • “Maisie Dobbs might be classified as a secret weapon judging by her courage and fierce determination as she plunges into wars…Winspear has created a vivid niche.”

    Washington Times on In This Grave Hour
