Maisie Dobbs—one of the most complex and admirable
characters in contemporary fiction (Richmond Times
Dispatch)—faces danger and intrigue on the home front
during World War II.
During the months following Britain’s declaration of war
on Germany, Maisie Dobbs investigates the disappearance
of a young apprentice working on a hush-hush government
contract. As news of the plight of thousands of soldiers
stranded on the beaches of France is gradually revealed
to the general public, and the threat of invasion rises,
another young man beloved by Maisie makes a terrible
decision that will change his life forever.
Maisie’s investigation leads her from the countryside of
rural Hampshire to the web of wartime opportunism
exploited by one of the London underworld’s most powerful
men, in a case that serves as a reminder of the
inextricable link between money and war. Yet when a final
confrontation approaches, she must acknowledge the
potential cost to her future—and the risk of destroying a
dream she wants very much to become reality.
