An Incomplete Revenge

An Incomplete Revenge

With the country in the grip of economic malaise, Maisie Dobbs is relieved to accept an apparently straightforward assignment to investigate a potential land purchase. Her inquiries take her to a picturesque village in Kent during the hop-picking season, but beneath its pastoral surface she finds evidence that something is amiss. Mysterious fires erupt in the village with alarming regularity, and a series of petty crimes suggest a darker criminal element at work. A peculiar secrecy shrouds the village, and ultimately Maisie must draw on her finely-honed skills of detection to solve one of her most intriguing cases yet.

"Winspear vividly evokes England between the wars, when the old order crumbles and new horizons beckoned working women like her appealing heroine. ...this jaunt back to a bygone era is as satisfying as a spin in Maisie's MG."
   —Publisher's Weekly

"A painfully evocative tale of England's struggles with class differences and poverty between the wars, and a clever mystery."
   —Kirkus Reviews
