painfully from each one Her life representative of our shared human experience, making it is easy to empathize with Maisie and root for her happiness.Of course, this is a mystery series and not, on the surface anyway, primarily concerned with the heroine s private life In the American Agent, Maisie and best friend Pris are ambulance drivers in London during the Blitz The death and destruction of this period are related to the American populace by radio or wireless broadcasts led by famed American journalist Edward R Murrow The United States, still in the throes of Isolationism following the Great War, is still reluctant to enter the fight against Hitler Catherine Saxon is a young reporter who is working with Murrow and hopes to bring America into the fray, despite the disapproval of her politician father and brother Maisie is asked to investigate when Catherine is found with her throat slit in her rented London rooms Since Catherine was an American citizen and the daughter of a senator, Maisie is paired with American Department of Justice Agent Mark Scott as she tries to identify the killer.Actual transcripts of radio broadcasts from the era punctuate fast moving events and Maisie s lack of closure from a case years before influence her unraveling of this investigation Her efforts to adopt her ward Anna and to resist her attraction to the mysterious Mark Scott, who has secrets of his own, make this 15th series entry particularly compelling as Maisie personal life takes some satisfying turns Winspear is a master of historical suspense and her respect and admiration for her characters is always evident While each Maisie Dobbs is a not to missed experience, The American Agent is a series standout.My thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss for providing an egalley My
