Anmeldelser

«It's a long time since I've read a crime novel that begins as well as Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs ... well written ... [Jacqueline Winspear] is set fair for a very bright future as a crime novelist.»

Simon Brett, Daily Mail

«Feisty, working-class heroine Maisie is a deliberate throwback to the sleuthettes of old-fashioned crime writing and will appeal to all those fans who pine for uncomplicated characters and a strong demarcation between good and bad. The well-plotted story, its characters and the picture of London between the wars are decidedly romantic. American readers loved it; many Brits will, too.»

The Guardian

«'In Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear has given us a real gift. Maisie Dobbs has not been created - she has been discovered. Such people are always there amongst us, waiting for somebody like Ms. Winspear to come along and reveal them. And what a revelation it is!'»

Alexander McCall Smith

«Sue Baker's 'Quarterly Highlights'»

Publishing News

«A wry and immensely readable beginning to what promises to be a vivid new addition to crime fiction»

Mail on Sunday

«Even if detective stories aren't your thing, you'll love Maisie Dobbs»

New Woman

«The book is much more than a cosy mystery - it is also about women's growing emancipation and the profound changes to society after the First World War.»

Mail on Sunday's You

«Maisie Dobbs is a welcome and unusual addition to the crowded world of literary detectives ... A very readable whodunnit»

Sainsbury's Magazine

«Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs is a welcome addition to the sleuthing scene. Simultaneously self-reliant and vulnerable, Maisie isn't a character I'll easily forget»

Elizabeth George

«Much more than just another detective story... thought-provoking»

Newbooksmag

«Readers sensing a story-within-a-story won't be disappointed. But first, they must prepare to be astonished at the sensitivity and wisdom with which Maisie resolves her first professional assignment»
