Working with the British Secret Service on an undercover
mission, Maisie Dobbs is sent to Hitlerâ€™s Germany in this
thrilling tale of danger and intrigueâ€”the twelfth novel in
Jacqueline Winspearâ€™s New York Times bestselling
â€śseries that seems to get better with each entryâ€ť (Wall
Itâ€™s early 1938, and Maisie Dobbs is back in England. On a
fine yet chilly morning, as she walks towards Fitzroy
Squareâ€”a place of many memoriesâ€”she is intercepted by Brian
Huntley and Robert MacFarlane of the Secret Service. The
German government has agreed to release a British subject
from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family
member. Because the manâ€™s wife is bedridden and his daughter
has been killed in an accident, the Secret Service wants
Maisieâ€”who bears a striking resemblance to the daughterâ€”to
retrieve the man from Dachau, on the outskirts of Munich.
The British government is not alone in its interest in
Maisieâ€™s travel plans. Her nemesisâ€”the man she holds
responsible for her husbandâ€™s deathâ€”has learned of her
journey, and is also desperate for her help.
Traveling into the heart of Nazi Germany, Maisie encounters
unexpected dangersâ€”and finds herself questioning whether
itâ€™s time to return to the work she loved. But the Secret
Service may have other ideas. . . .
