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.
