Publisher's Summary

In the midst of the hop-picking season in the village of Heronsdene, Kent, Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, undertakes an assignment from James Compton, son of her long-time supporter, Lady Rowan Compton, to look into aspects of a land purchase on his behalf. Quickly drawn into the local community, with its prejudices against the seasonal workers from London and the traveling gypsies who flock to Kent at harvest-time, Maisie soon becomes involved in an effort to discover the source of petty crime in the area, as well as a spate of fires that has blighted Heronsdene for years.

As she is pulled deeper into the investigation, Maisie is increasingly intrigued by the peculiar mood of melancholy and secrecy that shrouds the village, a feeling that is inflamed by the villagers' fear - but just what has caused them to be so afraid? The beloved sleuth must draw on all her training and experience to discover the truth in this gripping, atmospheric installment of the best-selling series.

Don't miss other titles in the Maisie Dobbs series.

    "Never Again!"

    Never again will I read a negative review before listening to the book involved!I have been chronologically reading the Maisie Dobbs series and after a negative review of "An Incomplete Revenge" skipped it and went on the the next novel .
    However,I decided to rectify my omission and Thoroughly enjoyed the novel from the plot to the characterization to the narrator...I sincerely believe that "...the willing suspension of disbelief" should be the credo of an intelligent reader who has enjoyed previously enjoyed works by the same author.Keep on Ms Winspear.......please

    "Good but not her best."

    I noticed when someone writes a negative review people don’t find the review useful. Even so I feel like if I’m going to review a book at least I should write some type of review. This is my least favorite of all of her books so far. Although we have followed her life from an early age, all of a sudden she is part gypsy and is aware of all of their ways and language. Also she is proficient with a divining rod to locate any item if she thinks of it hard enough. I like her books and will listen to all of them but I think this story was weak and not practical or probable. At parts, I wish I was able to fast-forward because it was long and drawn out. In her previous books I never even thought of doing something like that because I like each part of the story. I hope her next book is well thought out and not written just to get a book out on the market.

    "Different"

    The mystery in this one is weaker than the others in the series, but the character development is terrific. I really enjoyed it.

    "The Best of Both"
    What made the experience of listening to An Incomplete Revenge the most enjoyable?

    Love love love Orlagh Cassidy as narrator. I haven't listened to anything else she has narrated but I will based just on her name. She brought to life charactors I love.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    All of the Maisie Dobbs books are fastenating. I can never guess the ending before I get there.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The Maisie Dobbs series always leaves me deeply contemplative. Usually I laugh and cry along the way, but am always moved.

    "Completely Pertinent Today"

    They say that Trees in a forest are connected in ways we humans don't detect. Is it possible that connection lives on in books and humans, by the spores of the paper coming from that forest? I fee this book so keenly, speaking to me about prejudice and world hate today. Wow, I did not expect this. I'm so glad I came back to this series.

    "Maisie, you are brilliant!"

    When I read this installment of Maisie Dobbs' series, I felt it was the best yet. Maisie is a complex character, and far, far ahead of her time. How she is able to accomplish so much as a single woman in the 1930's is . . . well, fiction . . . but I love her nonetheless.

    Author Jacqueline Winspear integrates the perfect amount of period detail, but in a way that does not feel overbearing. I always feel transported to another place and time. The highest complement I can give Winspear, however, is how she weaves the various subplots into each novel. I want to take a basket of food and offer to babysit for Billy and Dorene Bealle. I want to sip sherry with Maurice and absorb his wisdom. I want to be Maisie Dobbs!

    "Intricate and exciting story and (spoiler)"

    what a relief that Simon finally and truly died. At this point in the series, just the mention of his name made me groan. And not in sympathy. And what a relief that he was cremated, because future cemetery visits would have done me in. Otherwise, brilliant as ever.
