Abstract:

Maisie Dobbs must catch a madman before he commits murder on an unimaginable scale.

It's Christmas Eve, 1931. On the way to see a client, Maisie Dobbs witnesses a suicide on a busy London street. The following day, the prime minister's office receives a letter threatening a massive loss of life if certain demands are not met - and the writer mentions Maisie by name. After being questioned and cleared by Detective Chief Superintendent Robert MacFarlane of Scotland Yard's elite Special Branch, she is drawn into MacFarlane's personal fiefdom as a special adviser on the case.

Jacqueline Winspear's beloved gumshoe, Maisie Dobbs, returns to solve another befuddling case. On Christmas Eve in 1931, Maisie Dobbs observes a man take his own life on the streets of London. The morning after, the Prime Minister's office is sent a letter endangering the lives of many people if certain orders aren't met. Shockingly, Maisie's name is written on the list.

Having witnessed a suicide on a busy London street, Maisie Dobbs learns that she has been mentioned in a threatening letter to the prime minister and is subsequently recruited by Scotland Yard.
