    To the costermongers of Covent Garden Eddie Pettit was a gentle soul with a gift for working with horses. When Eddie is killed in a violent accident, the grieving costers are skeptical about the cause of his death. Who would want to kill Eddie - and why? Maisie Dobbs' father, Frankie, had been a costermonger, so she had known the men since childhood. She remembers Eddie fondly and is determined to offer her help. But it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are equally determined to prevent her from learning the truth behind Eddie's death.

    "Winspear's best of the lot so far of a great lot"

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Masie Dobbs continues character growth and Winspear sets up all the major characters for growth and development in further work.


    Which character – as performed by Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    I'd like to hear a take by a male reader on the next book. Orlagh has done very well, especially with the Scottish accents, but my ears long for a real male doing the male characters. Are there any male-female teams of readers? I'd also like to hear a real Londoner or Southeastern Englishperson doing the voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beat-down of Billy. He's become the lightening rod for novelistic misfortune, yet is a champ. I want to see Billy solve a hard case in narrative exposition and not just off-stage, maybe even save Masie from physical peril and psychological detachability.
