A little bit Downton Abbey, a little bit My Fair Lady and a little bit Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the story of Maisie Dobbs begins in the servants' quarters of a London mansion and ends several floors above at the same posh address. From maid to intuitive detective Maisie confronts the trauma of war in her clients and herself while taking over the practice of her mentor, a renowned investigator.  A shifting timeline features Maisie's origin story against the devastating backdrop of WWI while leading the reader through a satisfying mystery and heartfelt conclusion.
