Publisher's Summary

In the midst of the hop-picking season in the village of Heronsdene, Kent, Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, undertakes an assignment from James Compton, son of her long-time supporter, Lady Rowan Compton, to look into aspects of a land purchase on his behalf. Quickly drawn into the local community, with its prejudices against the seasonal workers from London and the traveling gypsies who flock to Kent at harvest-time, Maisie soon becomes involved in an effort to discover the source of petty crime in the area, as well as a spate of fires that has blighted Heronsdene for years. As she is pulled deeper into the investigation, Maisie is increasingly intrigued by the peculiar mood of melancholy and secrecy that shrouds the village, a feeling that is inflamed by the villagers' fear - but just what has caused them to be so afraid? The beloved sleuth must draw on all her training and experience to discover the truth in this gripping, atmospheric installment of the best-selling series.
Don't miss other titles in the Maisie Dobbs series.

Never Again!

Never again will I read a negative review before listening to the book involved!I have been chronologically reading the Maisie Dobbs series and after a negative review of "An Incomplete Revenge" skipped it and went on the the next novel .
However,I decided to rectify my omission and Thoroughly enjoyed the novel from the plot to the characterization to the narrator...I sincerely believe that "...the willing suspension of disbelief" should be the credo of an intelligent reader who has enjoyed previously enjoyed works by the same author.Keep on Ms Winspear.......please

Different

The mystery in this one is weaker than the others in the series, but the character development is terrific. I really enjoyed it.
