Publishers Weekly Review

Cassidy is the perfect voice for Winspear's Maisie Dobbs adventures. It's 1938, and Maisie has returned to England after a time in Spain working as a nurse in that war-torn country. She's still mourning the death of her husband, and her future is unclear. She accepts an assignment from the government to travel to Munich in the guise of Edwina Donant, whose father, Leon Donant, a British engineer of great military importance, is being held in Dachau. The Nazis will only release Donant to a family member, and the engineer's only relative, his daughter, is too ill to travel. In addition to her official assignment, Maisie reluctantly accepts a second rescue mission, one with a more personal connection. In Germany, Maisie discovers that both missions hold their own intricacies and dangers. One wrong move could mean the difference between life and death. Cassidy is completely comfortable depicting Maisie's world. Her clear English delivery moves the intriguing and suspenseful story along at a smooth, steady pace. At the same time, she easily juggles a diverse, multinational array of characters, each with their own distinctive accents and personalities. A Harper hardcover. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
