Anmeldelser

«Heavy on charm»

Bookseller

«'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

«A terrific mystery ... Both intriguing and full of suspense, it makes for an absorbing read.»

Observer

«Set in the 1920s, Winspear's books are strong on atmosphere, and her creation, Maisie, is perhaps the woman Miss Marple would have liked to have been when she was young»

Publishing News

«Birds of a Feather reads like a gripping mixture of Vera Brittain and Dorothy Sayers so fans of both authors will enjoy Maisie's latest adventure.»

New Books

Praise for <i> MAISIE DOBBS, </i> Daily Mail

«'She has crafted a terrific mystery ... Both intriguing and full of suspense, it makes for an absorbing read.- Peter Gutteridge.»

The Observer

«Think Sherlock Holmes crossed with Miss Marple's granddaughter, now add the atmospheric setting of 1930's London and a well-spun plot and you've the basis for the second in Jacqueline Winspear's delightful series of detective novels featuring the indomitable Maisie Dobbs ... Maisie is independent and deploys intelligence, charm and intuition to crack the case»

Scottish Daily Record

«Equally as sharp and intriguing as its predecessor»
