    In London’s Pimlico neighborhood lies a tenement described in architectural guides as “a building of no interest whatsoever.” But the residents of Corduroy Mansions—including a literary agent, a wine merchant, a thoroughly unpleasant member of Parliament, and a vegetarian dog—are a rather fascinating lot.

    "Wise and funny observations from my fave author."
    Overall

    I have read and/or listened to all of Alexander McCall Smith's books, but somehow missed the start of this new series. I began listening to "Corduroy Mansions" in audiobook format at the beginning of an intercontinental flight and it was a real struggle not to laugh out loud. I just couldn't stop listening and am now seriously jet-lagged!! Mr. McCall Smith was the first author in the yearly Pen and Podium series here in Denver. Nobody since has been as interesting, charming and funny. He's my favorite author.

    In the summer of 1932, Maisie Dobbs' career takes an exciting new turn when she accepts an undercover assignment directed by Scotland Yard's Special Branch and the Secret Service. Posing as a junior lecturer, she is sent to a private college in Cambridge to monitor any activities "not in the interests of His Majesty's government". She soon finds herself investigating a web of activities being conducted by the emerging Nazi Party.

    Jeanette Finan says: "A worthy edition to the series"
    "Love this series!"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed every book in this series that features a clever young English woman who served as a nurse during WWI. In some of her characters, she reveals the psychological and physical aftermath endured by veterans, while solving intriguing mysteries. Maisie, à la Upstairs/Downstairs, transitioned from a maid to a college-educated psychologist/investigator who is respected enough to work freelance with Scotland Yard. Go Maisie! (Written by Lynn, not Richard.)
