Publisher's Summary

Spring, 1940: with Britons facing what has become known as the Bore War - nothing much seems to have happened yet - Maisie Dobbs is asked to investigate the disappearance of a local lad, a young apprentice craftsman working on a 'hush-hush' government contract. 
As Maisie's inquiry reveals a possible link to the London underworld, so the country is bracing for a possible enemy invasion amid news of the British expeditionary force stranded along the French coast. And another mother is worried about a missing son - but this time the boy in question is one beloved by Maisie.

Excellent!

I am totally hooked on the Maisie Dobbs series and this latest book is as good if not better than the previous ones. The story is gripping and the narration perfect. The only problem is that I found it really difficult to stop listening and stayed awake far into the night to follow the plot! Can't wait for the next one!

Fascinating and enthralling

I am always interested in novels that focus on WWII, and Jacqueline Winspears novels are always a real treat. In this one she introduced me to two unknown facts about the war, one involving airforce bases, the other explaining what happened to the Bank of England during the war. Her characters are, as always, convincing portrayals of people one might already know, although Maisie Dobbs herself is unquestionably the star. This is the first audiobook I have listened to, and was very impressed; the voices were of course not quite as I had imagined them, but this was very quickly forgotten, and the story drew me in as her written novels always do. Overall, a big thanks to Ms Winspear and Ms Teal for a wonderful experience.

The best so far?

I have either listened to or read all of the Maisie Dobbs series to date and I think this is up there with the best so far. It was a very personal book and I wasn’t at all surprised to discover that Winspear had drawn on many family stories from WWll for the content. I found the book quite moving in places and it was lovely to benefit from the author’s meticulous research into this fascinating year (1940) of the war.
Julie Teale gave her usual excellent reading. I like her pace and the space she gives words and sentences. Highly recommended.
