-  

Featuring books 7 to 9 in Jacqueline Winspear's historical crime series featuring PI extraordinaire Maisie Dobbs, this collection will take you back to the early 1930s when all sorts of post-war mysteries occur.

The Mapping of Love & Death follows the strange case of Michael Clifton, a young American who fought for the British Army (his father's native country) and was declared missing in action in August, 1914. In April, 1932, Michael's remains are unearthed in a French field and his parents ask Maisie Dobbs to try and find out who the unnamed nurse he was writing love letters to is. It finds Maisie looking back on her own bittersweet wartime love - and the revelation that Michael Clifton may not have died in combat after all...

A Lesson in Secrets finds Maisie being given an undercover assignment directed by Scotland Yard's Special Branch and the Secret Service. She's sent to a college in Cambridge to monitor any activities deemed to be 'not in the interests of the Crown' and soon the college's controversial pacifist founder and principal is murdered...

Elegy for Eddie finds a horse-loving gentle soul being killed in a violent 'accident'. The costermongers of Covent Garden are deeply sceptical about the cause of his death and call in Maisie for help. Her investigations bring her to a 'has-been' politician (named Winston Churchill), a callous press baron and the husband of one of her closest friends. Soon she's discovering lies and manipulation on a national scale.

This collection includes books 7 to 9 in Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series.
