Summary
Maisie Dobbs returns in a powerful story of political intrigue and personal tragedy: a brutal murder in the British garrison town of Gibraltar leads the investigator into a web of lies, deceit, and danger. Spring 1937. In the four years since Maisie Dobbs left England, she has experienced love, contentment, stability, and the deepest tragedy a woman can endure. Now, all Maisie wants is the peace she believes she might find by returning to India. But Maisie's sojourn in the hills of Darjeeling is cut short when her stepmother summons her home to England: Frankie Dobbs, her aging father, is not getting any younger. On a ship bound for England, Maisie realizes she is not ready to return. Against the wishes of the captain who warns her, "You will be alone in a most dangerous place, " she disembarks in Gibraltar. Though Maisie is on her own, she is far from alone: the British garrison town is teeming with refugees fleeing a brutal civil war across the border in Spain. And the danger is very real. Days after Maisie's arrival, Sebastian Babayoff, a photographer and member of Gibraltar's Sephardic Jewish community, is murdered, and Maisie becomes entangled in the case, drawing the attention of the British Secret Service. Under the suspicious eye of a British agent, Maisie is pulled deeper into political intrigue on "the Rock" ---- arguably Britain's most important strategic territory ---- and renews an uneasy acquaintance in the process. At a crossroads between her past and her future, Maisie must choose a direction, knowing that England is, for her, an equally dangerous place, but in quite a different way
