The Consequences of Fear: A Maisie Dobbs Novel | Jacqueline Winspear
5 posts | 6 read | 3 to read
As Europe buckles under Nazi occupation, Maisie Dobbs investigates a possible murder that threatens devastating repercussions for Britain's war efforts in this latest installment in the New York Times bestselling mystery series. September 1941. While on a delivery, young Freddie Hackett, a message runner for a government office, witnesses an argument that ends in murder. Crouching in the doorway of a bombed-out house, Freddie waits until the coast is clear. But when he arrives at the delivery address, hes shocked to come face to face with the killer. Dismissed by the police when he attempts to report the crime, Freddie goes in search of a woman he once met when delivering a message: Maisie Dobbs. While Maisie believes the boy and wants to help, she must maintain extreme caution: shes working secretly for the Special Operations Executive, assessing candidates for crucial work with the French resistance. Her two worlds collide when she spots the killer in a place she least expects. She soon realizes shes been pulled into the orbit of a man who has his own reasons to killreasons that go back to the last war. As Maisie becomes entangled in a power struggle between Britains intelligence efforts in France and the work of Free French agents operating across Europe, she must also contend with the lingering question of Freddie Hacketts state of mind. What she uncovers could hold disastrous consequences for all involved in this compelling chapter of the series that seems to get better with every entry (Wall Street Journal).

A nostalgic type of detective novel, based in London during the second World War, it is extremely well written and a plot that's well developed. Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of an unknown person as reported by her young runner, Freddie Hackett. But far larger forces are at play here..

This is another fantastic read in the Maisie Dobbs series. I guess it falls under “Cozy Mystery” because it‘s not gory. I love this character driven mystery series. Maisie has changed so much since the first book, and I love getting to see her evolve.
