Product description

Review

“Delves deeply into [Maisy’s] complicated relationships and hints at a compelling future.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The cross-cultural theme adds another dimension to Winspear’s London of 1933….This tenth Maisie Dobbs mystery continues the series’ high quality, capturing a time and place and featuring a protagonist as compassionate as she is intuitive. A fine historical mystery with broad appeal.” (Booklist)

“Parting is such sweet sorrow….Winspear adroitly weaves a mystery involving tensions with race, class, and even love….Highly recommended for fans of strong women detectives.” (Susan Moritz, Library Journal)

“To remain connected to life’s possibilities, one’s mind must be open to change….It’s a concept that Winspear explores with grace and generosity in Leaving Everything Most Loved.” (Jay Strafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“Psychology and private investigation: an unlikely combination of professions, especially for a woman in the 1930s. And yet Maisie Dobbs does both, brilliantly.” (Adam Woog, Seattle Times Book Review)

From the Back Cover

London, 1933. Two months after Usha Pramal's body is discovered in the waters of a city canal, her brother, newly arrived in England, turns to Maisie Dobbs for help. Not only has Scotland Yard made no arrests, but evidence indicates they failed to conduct a full investigation. Usha had been staying at an ayah's hostel, a refuge for Indian women. As Maisie learns, Usha was different from the hostel's other residents. But with this discovery comes new danger, as a fellow lodger who was close to Usha is found murdered.

As Maisie is pulled deeper into an unfamiliar yet captivating subculture, her investigation becomes clouded by the unfinished business of a previous case, and by a growing desire to see more of the world. At the same time, her lover, James Compton, gives her an ultimatum she cannot ignore. Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved signals a vital turning point in this remarkable series.
