Maisie Dobbs

Synopsis of book»

London, 1933.  Some two months after an Indian woman, Usha Pramal, is found murdered in the brackish water of a south-London canal, her brother, newly arrived in England, turns to Maisie Dobbs to find the truth about her death. Not only has Scotland Yard made no arrests, but evidence indicates they failed to conduct a full and thorough investigation.

Before her death, Usha was staying at the Ayah’s Hostel, a refuge for Indian women whose British employers had turned them out, penniless and far from home once their services were no longer needed. As Maisie learns, Usha was different from the hostel’s other lodgers. But with this discovery comes new danger—soon another Indian woman who was close to Usha is found murdered before she can talk to Maisie.

As Maisie is pulled deeper into an unfamiliar yet alluring subculture, her investigation becomes clouded by the unfinished business of a previous case, and by a growing desire to see more of the world by following in the footsteps of her former mentor, Maurice Blanche. At the same time, her lover, James Compton, gives her an ultimatum she cannot ignore.
