HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 25 February 2014
Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, is asked to try and find a businessman’s daughter. Maisie is dubious about the case because she suspects Mr Waite’s motives as his daughter, Charlotte, is an adult and cannot be compelled to return to her father’s home. When she realises that the name of a recent murder victim is one of the friends listed in Charlotte’s address book Maisie is very worried about the case.

This is a thought provoking mystery set in the nineteen twenties where the shadow of World War I is still lying heavy on many people including Maisie. There are interesting characters and motivations and a well drawn historical background. Maisie is battling with her uneasy relationship with her father and her own position in society which is unusual. Her business is helping her to establish herself and Billy Beale, her assistant is settling into his job and proving his worth.

If you like your crime novels with added depth and then try this series. Maisie herself has many interesting qualities and is developing into a well-rounded person with problems of her own to solve. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys Carola Dunn’s Daisy Dalrymple or Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher.
