If it will get me back in the royal family’s good graces, I’ll grin and bear it. Even on the worst days, I know this will be worth it. I’ll keep my head down and do my job.

So I’ll just get back in her bed one more time…

As Davenport investigates, the trail leads to a political fixer who has disappeared, then—troublingly—to the Minneapolis police department itself, and most unsettling of all, to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons in manipulation. She has very definite ideas about the way the world should work—along with the money, ruthlessness, and cold-blooded will to make it happen.

44 Birds of a Feather - Jacqueline Winspear
Auteur : Jacqueline Winspear
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
Praise for Maisie Dobbs:

"Maisie Dobbs is a quirky literary creation. 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 within this novel. . . .

"Deft. . . . Prepare to be astonished at the sensitivity and wisdom with which Maisie resolves her first professional assignment. . . . Winspear takes her through her ordeal with great compassion."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Surprisingly fresh. . . . Winspear does a fine job with the ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ aspects of the story, depicting the class tensions that inevitably ari
