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.

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.

Praise

"[A] bleak historical mystery, strong with period detail and culture...Winspear breathes new life into this solid series...." (Starred review.) - Jessica Moyer 12/01/2008

"[A]n outstanding historical series..." - Marilyn Stasio 03/08/2009

"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." - Tom Nolan 03/21/2009
