Synopsis of book»

April, 1933. To the costermongers of London, Eddie Pettit is simply a gentle soul with a near-magical gift for working with horses. When he is killed in a violent accident, the costers are skeptical about the cause of his death, and recruit Maisie Dobbs to investigate.

Maisie, who has known these men since childhood and remembers Eddie fondly, is determined to help. But it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are equally determined to prevent her from learning too much about Eddie's death.

Maisie's search for answers begins in the working-class streets of Lambeth, but quickly leads her to a callous press baron, a 'has been' politician named Winston Churchill lingering in the hinterlands of power and, most surprisingly, to Douglas Partridge, the husband of her dearest friend, Priscilla. As Maisie uncovers lies and manipulation on a national scale, she must decide whether to risk all to see justice done.
