Краткое описание

The Mapping of Love and Death: A Maisie Dobbs Novel.

(Winner of the 2011 Bruce Alexander Memorial Historical Mystery Award) In her seventh outing in Jacqueline Winspear's Agatha and Macavity Award–winning series, inquiry agent Maisie Dobbs is contacted by the parents of a long-lost soldier. American cartographer Michael Clifton volunteered to fight for England in 1914, but disappeared before the war's end; his remains have finally been discovered, 14 years later, in a collapsed dugout in a French field. But the nature of his injuries suggest he may have been murdered before the cave-in, while a bundle of love letters found with him impel Maisie to track down a mysterious nurse. "Compared to Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers in both style and tone, Winspear has crafted yet another fascinating installment to her best-selling series, combining a clever assessment of the social, cultural, and economic turmoil of 1930s Europe with a tidy and entertaining mystery. However, Winspear's melancholy voice, vivid descriptions of Depression-era London, and war-haunted characters add just the right amount of gloom to keep modern readers turning the pages. Winspear focuses nearly as much on Maisie's personal life and social circle as she does on the mounting body count, but most critics thought that the momentum and suspense don't suffer as a result.... Maisie's followers will delight in her new adventure."—Bookmarks Magazine"Winspear's seventh Maisie Dobbs novel (after Among the Mad) finds the detective employed by the parents of a soldier and cartographer, Michael Clifton, who fought during World War I.... The only clues found with the body are Clifton's deteriorated journal and love letters to an unnamed nurse. There's also the dilemma of the California land purchase, potentially lucrative, that Clifton made just before he enlisted. With no deed of sale or will apparent, the land is mired in legal entanglements. This case has long grown cold, but Maisie is too relentless an investigator to let it prevent her from bringing a murderer to justice. An engaging plot coupled with captivating characters makes this the best Dobbs novel to date."—Library Journal (starred review)
