The series set after World War I are very interesting reads for me. Maisie Dobbs worked in France during the war as a nurse so the flashbacks are also indicative of what her work during the war involved. This particular book involves three separate mysteries of missing people - all missing in action so to speak and whose families in one way or another seek closure.
The results of Maisie's investigations are intriguing. You knew at the beginning that it is what not it seemed. No one had actually died the way the way they said (otherwise there would have been no mystery!) but the tale is very interesting and what transpires on the way and how it gets actually solved is what is good.
Maisie is not just part of an investigation here. In this story she also forms very much part of the emotional side of the story as she becomes personally involved in many ways. I did not care much for the psychic side of Maisie but then you cannot have everything.
This is a series involving Maisie Dobbs and I would certainly like to read more. The fact that I read this book in a large font made it so much easier on the eye as well.
