When Catherine Saxon, an American correspondent reporting on the war in Europe, is found murdered in her London digs, news of her death is concealed by British authorities. Serving as a linchpin between Scotland Yard and the Secret Service, Robert MacFarlane pays a visit to Maisie Dobbs, seeking her help. Accompanied by an agent from the US Department of Justice—Mark Scott, the American who helped Maisie escape Hitler’s Munich in 1938—he asks Maisie to work with Scott to uncover the truth about Saxon’s death.
Jacqueline Winspear, geb. 1955 ist eine englische Autorin, die schon lange in Amerika lebt. Ihre Serie um die Privatdetektivin Maisie Dobbs ist sehr bekannt und erfolgreich und immer gerne von mir empfohlen. “I’ve read every Maisie Dobb’s book and this is one of the best. The setting during the London Blitz creates an urgency and intensity that propels you through the story. All of the characters are interesting, likable people — you care what happens to them. And Maisie and her team are at the top of their game, sleuthing to find the truth with all of its nuances.” (Leserin) (303 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 358 Seiten noch günstig?
