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. . . .

Best Maisie Dobbs so far – this is my sixth book of the woman investigator set in World War I. After the disappointing “Leaving Everything Most Loved,” published 2013, I feared Maisie had retired for good. This 2016 book has the detective entering Germany in the late 1930s in pre-World War II as Hitler’s influence is being felt. She conveys the confusion felt by average Germans, the abuse rendered by Nazi leadership, and the bravery of those who dared challenge the overlords. Billy and Sandra are absent through much of this tale and it’s Maisie on her own. She assumes the role of the daughter of a Nazi prisoner to expedite his release.

WWII spy intrigue well read by Orlagh Cassidy, you are drawn into the story and held until the end. There is just the right amount of suspense with good believable characters. The female hero keeps her calm cool demeanor in spite of what seems like overwhelming odds. A good read engrossing to the end.
