Description

In the thrilling next novel by New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs must catch a madman before he commits murder on an unimaginable scale.

It's Christmas Eve 1931. On the way to see a client, Maisie Dobbs witnesses a man commit suicide on a busy London street. The following day, the prime minister's office receives a letter threatening a massive loss of life if certain demands are not met—and the writer mentions Maisie by name. After being questioned and cleared by Detective Chief Superintendent Robert MacFarlane of Scotland Yard's elite Special Branch, she is drawn into MacFarlane's personal fiefdom as a special adviser on the case.

Meanwhile, Billy Beale, Maisie's trusted assistant, is once again facing tragedy as his wife, who has never recovered from the death of their young daughter, slips further into melancholia's abyss. Soon Maisie becomes involved in a race against time to find a man who proves he has the knowledge and will to inflict death and destruction on thousands of innocent people. And before this harrowing case is over, Maisie must navigate a darkness not encountered since she was a nurse in wards filled with shell-shocked men.

In Among the Mad, Jacqueline Winspear combines a heart-stopping story with a rich evocation of a fascinating period to create her most compelling and satisfying novel yet.

Ce que les critiques en disent

“Not only does [narrator Orlagh Cassidy] navigate nimbly through conversations featuring various British accents, but she also is skilled at capturing personalities through speech.... Between suspenseful episodes, Cassidy invests scenes like cooking a simple dinner with an almost- sensuous domesticity.” —AudioFile, Earphones Award winner

“Winspear creates real suspense set against the troubled social and political scene in early -1930s London and Orlagh Cassidy's superb performance creates the voices and the mood.” —BookPage

“Cassidy's British dialects and emotional eloquence make characters and events feel real, frightening and relevant to today.” —The Herald-Sun

Among the mad

I did not enjoy this book as much as I have enjoyed the other ones of Jacqueline so I hope that my next book will be as good as the other ones that I’ve read

Among the mad... but healing

Orlagh Cassidy does a wonderful job of reading emotion into the dialogue. A difficult task with the very wide range of characters in this novel!

Maisie Dobbs is finding herself, and her strength of character and self--confidence is growing with each case she works through. Bravo!
