Review

A wry and immensely readable beginning to what promises to be a vivid new addition to crime fiction (Mail on Sunday)

Maisie Dobbs is a welcome and unusual addition to the crowded world of literary detectives. ... A very readable whodunnit (Sainsbury's Magazine)

Sue Baker's 'Quarterly Highlights' (Publisher's Weekly)

Simultaneously self-reliant and vulnerable, Maisie isn't a character I'll easily forget (Elizabeth George)

Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs is a welcome addition to the sleuthing scene. Simultaneously self-reliant and vulnerable, Maisie isn't a character I'll easily forget (Elisabeth George)

Very well written ... [Jacqueline Winspear has] a very bright future as a crime novelist (Daily Mail)

Even if detective stories aren't your thing, you'll love Maisie Dobbs (New Woman)

Readers sensing a story-within-a-story won't be disappointed. But first, they must prepare to be astonished at the sensitivity and wisdom with which Maisie resolves her first professional assignment (New York Times)

Much more than just another detective story... thought-provoking (Newbooksmag)

American readers loved it; many Brits will, too. (Guardian)

Readers sensing a story-within-a-story won't be disappointed. (New York Times)

It's a long time since I've read a crime novel that begins as well as Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs ... very well written ... [Jacqueline Winspear has] a very bright future as a crime novelist (Daily Mail)

Feisty, working-class heroine Maisie is a deliberate throwback to the sleuthettes of old-fashioned crime writing and will appeal to all those fans who pine for uncomplicated characters and a strong demarcation between good and bad. The well-plotted story, its characters and the picture of London between the wars are decidedly romantic. American readers loved it; many Brits will, too. (The Guardian)

The book is much more than a cosy mystery - it is also about women's growing emancipation and the profound changes to society after the First World War. (Mail on Sunday's You)

A notable new heroine whose adventures are set to continue. (Saga)

'In Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear has given us a real gift. Maisie Dobbs has not been created - she has been discovered. Such people are always there amongst us, waiting for somebody like Ms. Winspear to come along and reveal them. And what a revelation it is!'

Alexander McCall Smith
