"[A] bleak historical mystery, strong with period detail and culture...Winspear breathes new life into this solid series...." (Starred review.)
"[A]n outstanding historical series..."
"The book's puzzle is challenging, but what charms most is Dobbs herself: a woman 'not as adept in her personal life as she was in her professional domain,' and all the more engaging for that."
From the Publisher
Annotation England is still rebuilding after World War I and an air of anxiety lingers, so the mysterious letters threatening the prime minister and London's security provoke a particular urgency. Maisie Dobbs, who's an experienced psychologist as well as a private investigator, recently joined a special division of Scotland Yard and, in the midst of these menacing pressures, must quickly adjust to working as part of a team. Jacqueline Winspear ratchets up her series' intensity in AMONG THE MAD, as her heroine faces new challenges.
Editors Note A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"An outstanding historical series . . . deeply empathetic.” (The New York Times Book Review)Christmas Eve, 1931. On the way to see a client, Maisie Dobbs witnesses a man commit 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. Tapped by Scotland Yard’s elite Special Branch to be a special adviser on the case, Maisie is soon involved in a race against time to find a man who proves he has the knowledge and will to inflict destruction on thousands of innocent people. In Among the Mad, Jacqueline Winspear combines a heart-stopping story with a rich evocation of a fascinating period to create her most compelling and satisfying novel yet.
