Maisie Dobbs is back, and this time she has been hired to find a wealthy grocery magnate's daughter who has fled from home. What seems a simple case at first becomes complicated when Maisie learns of the recent violent deaths of three of the heiress's old friends. Is there a connection between her mysterious disappearance and the murders? Who would kill such charming young women? As Maisie investigates, she discovers that the answers to all her questions lie in the unforgettable agony of The Great War.

The adventures of Maisy Dobbs continue in this second book of the series. The character development is great, and I found the mixing of mystery with the main character's skills of intuition, compassion, and integrity very enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed the reader's accent and ability to bring characters to life with her change of voices. Her quick manner of speaking took a few minutes to adjust to, but then was not noticed for the rest of the book. It's best to read the first book in the series before reading this one, in order to get a foundation for the characters.
