  • Maisie investigates the murders of Belgian refugee

    It's 3 September 1939, the day that Neville Chamberlain announced that Britain was at war with Germany and Maisie Dobbs is called away from Priscilla's house by an urgent message from Dr Francesca Thomas, former member of the Belgian resistance group La Dame Blanche. A former Belgian refugee who had stayed in England and married an Englishwoman has been shot and murdered, execution style. A humble railway worker, the police believe it was simply aggravated robbery since he had just received his weekly pay packet, but Francesca is not convinced and hires Maisie to investigate and prevent further murders. Maisie has reassembled the old team, and managed to rent her old rooms - although they have had an upgrade thanks to the last tenant. As London starts planning for war and evacuating children to the countryside, the bodies start to pile up - can Maisie find the connection between these seemingly unconnected Belgian refugees before any more people die? Once again, this book brings to life the phoney war feeling immediately after Chamberlain's announcement, the feeling that evacuating the children was unnecessary and everyone forgetting to carry their gas masks. Juxtaposed with this is the very real anxiety felt by people like Maisie, Billy and Priscilla who all suffered greatly in the Great War, or WW1 as we know it, and know that this war won't be over by Christmas, no matter what the young believe.

    Thanks for your feedback!
