Synopsis

In the third novel of this bestselling series, London investigator Maisie Dobbs faces grave danger as she returns to the site of her most painful WWI memories to resolve the mystery of a pilot's death.

Every once in a while, a detective bursts on the scene who captures readers' heartsa€”and imaginationsa€”and doesn't let go. And so it was with Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs, who made her debut just two years ago in the eponymously titled first book of the series, and is already on her way to becoming a household name.

A deathbed plea from his wife leads Sir Cecil Lawton to seek the aid of Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator. As Maisie soon learns, Agnes Lawton never accepted that her aviator son was killed in the Great War, a torment that led her not only to the edge of madness but to the doors of those who practice the dark arts and commune with the spirit world. In accepting the assignment, Maisie finds her spiritual strength tested, as well as her regard for her mentor, Maurice Blanche. The mission also brings her together once again with her college friend Priscilla Evernden, who served in France and who lost three brothers to the wara€”one of whom, it turns out, had an intriguing connection to the missing Ralph Lawton.

Following on the heels of the triumphant Birds of a Feather, PARDONABLE LIES is the most compelling installment yet in the chronicles of Maisie Dobbs, "a heroine to cherish" (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review).

About the Author

Born in Kent, England in 1955, author, Jacqueline Winspear was educated at the University of London's Institute of Education. Afterward, she worked in marketing communications before immigrating to the United States in 1990. From the time she was a very young child, Winspear had an unusual awareness of the struggle her grandfather experienced in World War I. She decided to base her writing career on this subject.

Winspear published articles in the Washington Post, Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and other publications. Her short stories have appeared in magazines internationally, and she has recorded her essays for radio in San Francisco. Her most famous work is the Maisie Dobbs series of books. They are about a woman who came of age during a time when women took on the jobs of men, and many remained unmarried because many men had gone to war and did not return home.

Since it had been said that an entire generation had lost its innocence due to the Great War, Winspear took advantage of that unique time to create mysteries as a vehicle for exploring facets of that time. To Die But Once, is her latest in the Maisie Dobbs series released in 2018. She has 14 other novels in the series. Her novels have garnered her several prestigious awards, and have placed her on several bestselling lists.
