Britain is at war. Returned from a dangerous mission onto enemy soil, Maisie Dobbs is fully aware of the gravity of the current situation; her world is on the cusp of great change. One of those changes can be seen in the floods of refugees that are arriving in Britain, desperate for sanctuary. When Maisie stumbles on the deaths of refugees who may have been more than ordinary people, she is drawn into an investigation that requires all her insight and strength.
The 13th title in the Maisie Dobbs series from New York Times best-selling author Jacqueline Winspear.

"'I'm a huge Maisie Dobbs fan." (Lee Child)
"Maisie Dobbs has not been created - she has been discovered. And what a revelation she is!" (Alexander McCall Smith)
Familiarity with just about everything from before sometimes is what a listener sometimes needs.
Gratefully, there are fewer of the usual overdone ,clichéd dialogue sequences which are often found in "light" genre fiction.
Be prepared for the plodding plot.
"Another wonderful story"
I hope that one day that Maisie will find love and happiness one day
I like these stories because myself and my daughter can sit together and listen without fear of foul language or comment
