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.… (mehr)

Thismhad a very long and slow start. It wasn't until about page 200 that Maisie begun to draw her case map that was then never referred to again. 2.5 stars ( )

The British Secret Service are sending Maisie Dobbs to Munich to rescue an important businessman. Her cover is that she is his daughter. Unfortunately with it being 1938 Germany nothing is ever straightforward or safe.
Another enjoyable well-written thriller in this series. ( )

I’d been looking forward to this one and I did enjoy it but I wasn’t expecting to have to suspend disbelief as much as I did. Many times! I really liked it anyway but I struggled to believe a lot of the details of what happened. I appreciated all the suspense though.

I do like Maisie and the series books and I appreciated how this one built on previous happenings. All the books do that but I found it particularly satisfying in this book.

I’ve read many WWII/Holocaust books and this was the first book in the series where the setting was familiar to me. I’m glad that part of this book, unlike the last book but all the other series books, did take place in England. I love the English settings. They’re among the things I like most about this series. It seems we’re never going to totally leave WWI though and except for brief mentions I wish we would.

I love the blurring of class lines. We’d seen it with Maisie and Sandra, and Billy to some extent. Here I especially appreciated Brenda and all the relationships she has including the one with Maisie.

I love everything about the ending and its various resolutions, particularly as with regards to Maisie & Sandra & Billy and about the new tradition of the regular Sunday lunches with everyone involved.

I appreciate the author’s notes at the end about the inspiration for this particular Munich story and about her writing in general.

I simultaneously read a Kindle e-book edition and an Overdrive audio edition, both borrowed from my public library. This has become my favorite way to read in the last year+. ( )

Maisie travels to Munich at the request of the British Secret Service to retrieve Leon Donat, a businessman and inventor, from Dachu. She impersonates his daughter, but the mission does not go as planned. She meets a US agent and also is asked to convince Elaine Otterburn to return to England to be with her son. It is amazing that she was able to carry a concealed hand gun around Munich under the noses of all the Nazi soldiers. ( )

Only the tiniest bits of 1938 Munich color and history making for a disappointing read. Mostly uninteresting characters, none fleshed out, and Maisie herself, sorry to say, I couldn't give one whit about and her petty upper class struggles and enemies and friendships. ( )
