Christmas Eve, 1931. On the way to see a client, Maisie Dobbs witnesses a man commit suicide on a busy London street. The following day, the Home Secretary receives a letter threatening a massive loss of life if certain demands are not met. Maisie is invited into Scotland Yard's elite Special Branch as a special adviser on the case - and becomes involved in a race against time to find a man who soon proves he has the knowledge, and will, to murder thousands of innocent people. Before this harrowing case is over, Maisie must negotiate her way through a darkness not encountered since she was a nurse in wards filled with shell-shocked men.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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 *
A fine new sleuth for the twenty-first century * Elizabeth George *
'A vivid portrait of depressed London in 1931 and a good, atmospheric read' * Literary Review *
A heroine to cherish * New York Times *
A wry and immensely readable beginning to what promises to be a vivid new addition to crime fiction * Praise for MAISIE DOBBS, Daily Mail *
The British counterpart to Alexander McCall Smith's The No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency * Associated Press *
Feisty, working-class heroine Maisie is a deliberate throwback to the sleuthettes of old-fashioned crime writing. 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. * Guardian *
A terrific mystery ... Intriguing and full of suspense, it makes for an absorbing read * Observer *
Even if detective stories aren't your thing, you'll love Maisie Dobbs * New Woman *
'Think Upstairs Downstairs meets Miss Marple - with a touch of chirpy cheerful Cockney from the Dick Van Dyke school' * Yorkshire Post *
'Perfect for curling up (with a hot chocolate!) when the weather is bad' * Woman's Way *
'A powerful, ultimately uplifting tale' * My Weekly *
'This award-winning author has added another action-packed, well-plotted mystery to her series. It moves at a cracking pace... Good twist ending - very Agatha Christie' * Newsbooks Magazine *
