Introducing Maisie Dobbs

"Startlingly original . . . Be prepared to be astonished."— The New York Times Book Review

Maisie Dobbs might not be a household name like Miss Marple or Kinsey Millhone but this third installment in the series by Jacqueline Winspear could change that.

In Pardonable Lies, Maisie Dobbs, a London psychologist and PI extraordinaire will journey back to painful memories of WWI and test her relationships with an old friend in order to fulfill a deathbed request to track down a young pilot who disappeared under questionable circumstances. Excerpt

For another exceptional British mystery of the same period, you might want to give Rennie Airth's River of Darkness, or the latest from Anne Perry, entitled Angel in the Gloom a try.
