Publisher's Summary

An enthralling tale of love and war, terror and survival from best-selling author Jacqueline Winspear.  

When Catherine Saxon, an American correspondent reporting on the war in Europe, is found murdered in her London digs, news of her death is concealed by British authorities. Serving as a linchpin between Scotland Yard and the Secret Service, Robert MacFarlane pays a visit to Maisie Dobbs, seeking her help. Accompanied by an agent from the US Department of Justice - Mark Scott, the American who helped Maisie escape Hitler’s Munich in 1938 - he asks Maisie to work with Scott to uncover the truth about Saxon's death. Maisie must balance the demands of solving this dangerous case with her need to protect the young evacuee she has grown to love. 

Entangled in an investigation linked to the power of wartime propaganda and American political intrigue being played out in Britain, Maisie will face losing her dearest friend.

Superb!

I've enjoyed all the Maisie Dobbs stories so much. I listen to many books , including Winston Churchill and Michael Portillo and others who write about WW1 and WW2 both factually
and as novels and Ms Winspear's dedication to truth is wonderful. I hope there are more Maisie Dobbs stories to come! Thanks you.

Absolutely brilliant!!

I have read/listened to all the Maisie Dobbs books and enjoyed them all. This book however was a real treat and probably counts as one of my favourites. The plot was gripping, the characters authentic and the experience of being in the Blitz so real.
My only slight criticism might be Miss Teal's ability to employ foreign accents - the Australian one in particular did wobble about a bit- but she does such a good job as Maisie that I didn't wish to knock off a star just for that.
I cannot wait for the next one and can only hope that Maisie's life develops as the end of this story hints it might!!

Great story and great narrator- a winning combinat

I love Maisie Dobbs and always look forward to a new instalment ! I have chosen to listen to the audio book for the last few novels and I enjoy it even more. I find the narrator Julie Teal to be excellent. she really captures Maisie.
