Set in London in the years after World War I, Maisie Dobbs is an independent young woman who has established a business as a “psychologist and investigator”. Her cases often require her to work closely with Inspector Stratton of the Scotland Yard where her insight into the human spirit and psyche lead her to find solutions beyond the obvious. This time Maisie is presented with three cases that appear very different and yet become entwined as she delves into the past of each and puts the pieces together. A young girl discovered dazed and bloody is accused of murder. Sir Cecil Lawton promises his wife on her deathbed that he will find proof that their aviator son really died in France during the war. And Maisie’s dearest friend, while certain that her brother died in the war, would like to know exactly where so that she can leave a memorial. Maisie’s search for answers puts her in danger physically, but it may be the return to her own personal wartime demons that will put her in the gravest danger of all. This is the third novel in the series followingMaisie Dobbs, and Birds of a Feather.
