We’ll be discussing Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. The first book in the popular mystery series, the novel introduces “psychologist and detective” Maisie Dobbs, a young woman who starts her working life as a lady’s maid in interwar England. Given a boost up first from her employer, Lady Rowan, then from an apprenticeship with master Detective Maurice Blanche, she starts her own agency.
In November, we’ll be reading The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters. This Edgar Award-winning mystery novel follows a police detective as he investigates a suspicious suicide — but it has an interesting twist — the case takes place as an asteroid approaches the earth. With six months before the end of the world, why bother solving one death? We’ll discuss this question and more on Tuesday, November 18.
