Staff Reviews

Maisie is still reeling from her status as a widow, dealing with the grief and anger of loss.  Priscilla provides a safe shelter within her family, but Maisie is an independent woman who needs to be on her own.  The hunt for an apartment has commenced.  It is in this frame of mind she is approached by Brian Huntley and Robert MacFarlane of the Secret Service.  Her country needs her.  One of England’s boffins has been locked up by the Nazis in Dachau.  Already in 1938 it is clear to the men in the secret service that they may well have need of a boffin, a man who invents things and has a gift for figuring out problems. The Germans have no idea of their prisoner’s talents and so a deal has been struck for his release, but it has conditions.  Instead of the usual methods, they will only release him to a member of his family.  Maisie is needed to pretend to be the daughter, go to Munich and collect the man.  Complications ensue.  Not least of which is the help requested by a man she holds responsible for her husband’s death.  Winspear paints a vivid picture of Germany under Hitler before the war.  An American enters the story in a brash manner, adding to the storyline. I look forward to each new entry in the Maisie Dobbs series!
