Product Description

Review

'Maisie Dobbs has not been created - she has been discovered. And what a revelation she is!' Alexander McCall Smith 'I'm a huge Maisie Dobbs fan' Lee Child 'An absorbing read' --The Observer

Product Description

London, 1933. Some two months after an Indian woman, Usha Pramal, is found murdered in a South London canal, her brother turns to Maisie Dobbs to find the truth about her death. Not only has Scotland Yard made no arrests, but evidence indicates they failed to conduct a full and thorough investigation.

Before her death, Usha was staying at an ayah’s hostel, a refuge for Indian women whose British employers had turned them out. As Maisie learns, Usha was different from the hostel’s other lodgers. But with this discovery comes new danger — soon another Indian woman who was close to Usha is found murdered before she can speak out.

As Maisie is pulled deeper into an unfamiliar yet alluring subculture, her investigation becomes clouded by the unfinished business of a previous case. And at the same time her lover, James Compton, gives her an ultimatum she cannot ignore...

5.0 out of 5 stars Maisie Dobbs series/books 13 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy the Maisie Dobbs stories written so eloquently by Jacqueline Winspear.
Set just post the Great War, the historical contexts are evocative.
To explain too much would spoil the experience of these intelligent, reflective and informative stories.
The realities of life are woven into the fabric, alongside values in society at all levels.
Questioning the status quo, in a profound and gentle way.
The mysteries are thoughtfully constructed, too.
I will always be a fan.
Please, Jacqueline, don't stop writing them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Maintains the standard 4 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
I have read all the Maisie Dobbs books and I think they are more than maintaining their quality. This one was particularly good with its storyline of attitudes to Asian immigrants before the war combined with Maisie's ongoing personal issues with her fiancée and employees in the period just before WW2. She is an interesting character who has grown like Harry Potter throughout the series. Anyone new would be well advised to go back to the first book and read then in order.. They combine historical and philosophical ideas with the dawning of the use of psychology as a tool in criminal investigation.
All this done by a woman of humble origins.who by good fortune fell under the influence and mentorship of a famous psychologist who encouraged her to follow in his footsteps and make her way as a private psychological investigator.
The period flavour is always well conveyed. These are not blood and thunder books which will set your heart racing but they can be gripping and suspenseful . I find that unlike some crime books the plots of Winspear's books stay with you

5.0 out of 5 stars oh how I loved this book. 20 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all the 10 books about Maisie Dobbs and all the people in her life,I loved her dad I thought he was great and I thought Billy and Sandra were great character's. I hope this is not the end of Maisie I want to know how she does In India and then what she will send in telegraph, yes or no. Please don't let this be the last in the life of Maisie Dobbs you must have loads of stories you could write about her. So sad coming to the end of this book.😤😹💔xx

5.0 out of 5 stars Maisie Dobbs Great Story 17 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have read all of the Maisie Dobbs books and they never disappoint, it's always nice to see what she is up to again, and how she has moved on in her life. Can't wait for the next instalment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Maisie Dobbs' best investigations 24 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover
I am a fan of the Maisie Dobbs books - I have read them all and look forward to new releases. On the one hand this means that I am expecting to love the next book that comes along, but having such high expectations can lead to disappointment. I don't know if I didn't enjoy this book because I had been anticipating its release for a while, was expecting it to be brilliant and was left disappointed or if it just wasn't very good.
I thought the plotline was interesting, unfortunately it didn't come off as the writing wasn't up to that of the previous books. The book seemed to have been rushed. The usually good sub-stories of Maisie's employees, family, friends & the times she is writing about are what to me make the series stand out, but not this time.
It was readable but if it had been my first Maisie Dobbs I don't think I would be bothered to read any more in the series.
If you are new to the series don't start with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prejudice and murder - Come on Maisie! 27 Oct 2014
By Both the Macs VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Never read a Maisie Dobbs novel I didn't enjoy - this one is no exception. It deals with murder (twice), but also, as befits our Maisie, with prejudices; this time about "them and us" - we had only a few immigrants in the UK from the Indian sub-continent back in 1933, but the problems were there, even then, when people wrinked their noses when Indian food was mentioned, and when a woman in a sari passed in the street. An eye opener indeed. Another well researched novel by Winspear to be enjoyed by fans of Maisie Dobbs.
