Description
To the costermongers of Covent Garden, selling fruits and vegetables on the London streets, Eddie Pettit was a gentle soul with a near-magical gift for working with horses. So who would want to kill him, and why? Maisie Dobbs remembers Eddie fondly, since her father Frankie had been a costermonger as well. But in this ninth mystery in Jacqueline Winspear's ever-fascinating, Agatha Award–winning series, set in the spring of 1933, it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are determined to prevent Maisie from learning the truth behind Eddie's death. Her search for answers in working-class Lambeth leads her to a callous press baron, a has-been politician named Winston Churchill, and most surprisingly, to Douglas Partridge, the husband of her dearest friend Priscilla.

"Long before the Downton Abbey craze, Jacqueline Winspear was writing remarkable mysteries about life in England circa WWI."—NYJournal of Books

"For readers yearning for the calm and insightful intelligence of a main character like P.D. James's Cordelia Gray, Maisie Dobbs is spot on."—Boston Globe

"If you cross-pollinated Vera Brittain's classic World War I memoir, Testament of Youth, with Dorothy Sayers's Harriet Vane mysteries and a dash of the old PBS series Upstairs, Downstairs, you'd approximate the peculiar range of topics and tones."—NPR's Fresh Air
