Working with the British Secret Service on an undercover mission, Maisie Dobbs is sent to Hitler’s Germany in this thrilling tale of danger and intrigue—the twelfth novel in Jacqueline Winspear’s New York Times bestselling “series that seems to get better with each entry” (Wall Street Journal). It’s early 1938, and Maisie Dobbs is back in England. On a fine yet chilly morning, as she walks towards Fitzroy Square—a place of many memories—she is intercepted by Brian Huntley and Robert MacFarlane of the Secret Service. The German government has agreed to release a British subject from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family member. Because the man’s wife is bedridden and his daughter has been killed in an accident, the Secret Service wants Maisie—who bears a striking resemblance to the daughter—to retrieve the man from Dachau, on the outskirts of Munich. The British government is not alone in its interest in Maisie’s travel plans. Her nemesis—the man she holds responsible for her husband’s death—has learned of her journey, and is also desperate for her help. Traveling into the heart of Nazi Germany, Maisie encounters unexpected dangers—and finds herself questioning whether it’s time to return to the work she loved. But the Secret Service may have other ideas. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Taut, tense, beautifully written…What you may not expect is the inventiveness of Winspear’s twists, the on-edge excitement they provoke, or the philosophical issues and psychological depths they call her to explore.” USA Today
“Maisie Dobbs has found herself another war…Sizzling.” New York Times Book Review
“It’s a knack to keep a long-running series fresh, and narrator Orlagh Cassidy definitely plays a significant role with her portraits of Maisie and her familiar friends and colleagues…Cassidy’s warm narration, with its clear emotional connection to the characters and events, makes this another winner. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Paints a keen picture of a woman and a country struggling to remain calm in the face of sweeping changes…deftly blending historical detail with taut suspense and her usual thoughtful exploration of Maisie’s inner life.” Shelf Awareness
“Maisie Dobbs proves herself wily and fiercely determined again in this twelfth series entry.” Booklist
“Winspear elegantly balances Maisie’s emotional turmoil and dogged patriotism with the growing tensions of a Europe on the brink of war.” Kirkus Reviews
