  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 February #2
    *Starred Review* Four years have passed in this series since Maisie Dobbs faced the ultimatum of her lover, James Compton, in London in 1933. Letters and news reports recount that Maisie accepted James' proposal and wed, giving up her work as a psychologist and investigator and finding great contentment for a year until James died in a test plane crash and she lost their unborn child. Having traveled to India to find peace after tragedy, Maisie is going home but still can't face the memories England holds, so she disembarks in Gibraltar, a dangerous place in 1937 with the Spanish civil war just across the border. During an evening walk, Maisie finds the body of photographer Sebastian Babayoff. Feeling it's her responsibility to find the truth about the murder, she starts to work, which lifts her near-suicidal depression. Things become more complicated when she finds herself the object of investigation, then stumbles on dangerous activities that support the Spanish Republican forces. This eleventh entry in the Maisie Dobbs series, with enough backstory to stand alone, shows the same meticulous research that grounds these books so firmly in their time and place, along with moving life changes that further humanize the intrepid protagonist. Another winner from Winspear. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
