Maisie Dobbs’ private practice as a “psychologist and investigator” is taking off when she receives a curious assignment from a wealthy journalist celebrated for her front-line reporting in World War I. Georgina Bassington-Hope explains that her twin brother has died, and she is convinced he has been murdered despite the police and the coroner’s conviction that his death was an accident. She wants Maisie to dig deeply and find the truth. Over the following weeks, Maisie’s life will be dominated by this unsettling case.

A complex intellectual puzzle

Georgina’s brother, Nick, was a brilliant painter whose work was beginning to earn him a fortune when he tumbled from a scaffold where he was about to hang his masterpiece. Maisie finds it difficult to obtain evidence that his death was anything but accidental: the case is a complex intellectual puzzle. Her thoroughness, obsessive attention to detail, and refusal to take anything at face value eventually lead Maisie into dark corners where the truth eventually emerges. The story is unsettling but it lacks the repeated violence of so much other detective fiction. Maisie works with her brains, not her fists.

Class resentment in Depression-era England

Messenger of Truth, the fourth in Jacqueline Winspear’s venerable series of Maisie Dobbs novels, is set in the closing days of 1930 and the early months of 1931. With the terrors of World War I still vivid in every mind, the Depression is in full force. Unemployment is rampant, and the fascist politician Oswald Mosley is gaining a following with his demagogic message. The ostentatious wealth of Georgina’s family contrasts with the desperation all around. Maisie’s class awareness rises as the gross inequities weigh on her more and more heavily. Having been born and raised close to the edge of poverty, Maisie has gained an education only through the lucky accident that the aristocratic family that employed her “in service” has given her opportunities for education and advancement closed to millions of others.

The Maisie Dobbs Series just keeps getting better! I was first introduced to Maisie Dobbs via Journey to Munich, the latest installment in the series. But I soon realized that I NEEDED to read the entire series, and thus my latest book was Messenger of Truth. In this book, Maisie Dobbs, Psychologist and Investigator, is approached by Georgina Bassinton-Hope to investigate the circumstances surrounding her brother Nick's recent demise. The juxtaposition of the very wealthy Bassinton-Hopes and the poor assistant to Maisie Dobbs, Billy Beale, is very interesting, especially because when Miss B-H, as Billy Beale chooses to call her, is informed of the death of Beale's precious daughter, Lizzy, merely glosses over the death as "oh, too bad (or something like that).." It makes her seem very callous in disregarding the death simply because they couldn't afford the Doctor's visit that may have saved her. In any case, Maisie investigates the death of Nick, an up and coming artist whose fall off of a scaffold doesn't seem to be the accident it was deemed to be. I hesitate to add more information about the book because I don't want to give away the ending of the book!

This will be my last date with Maisie Dobbs. She has some irritating habits, like zenning-out to discover plot twists. Too much hand wrenching, introspection, and stoicism. If there were even a slight bit of humor to lighten the rigid personality, and situations, I might try again. But, alas.....

I actually began these books while awaiting the next Her Royal Spyness romp, which are great fun to read, and a smart main character you can't help but love.

Maisie Dobb is tedious. I think I would like the Billy Beale Character, but he is merely a 2 dimensional plot twist to add to Maisie's "depth", unsuccessfully.

I tried the Maggie Hope stories, but they were thinly veiled Progressive propaganda, and not well researched.

So, now I'll just have to wait.

A superb series of historical mysteries with a unique "psychologist/investigator" who insists on fixing the people affected by the results of her investigations. There is much time spent on (presumably) accurate fashion notes, visits to various UK locations including Downton Abbey-ish great estates, driving around in a sporty little MG, an encounter with Oswald Mosley, and a major development in Maisie's personal life and another in Billy Beale's. As in previous volumes, the Great War's effects are still present, and the Depression is creeping more and more into the picture.

As one can tell from the above, this is a busy book filled with important events that fans of the series will devour. The mystery itself involves an artist, and its resolution was the least convincing one thus far. The descriptions of the artwork fell far short of being convincing.

Jacqueline Winspear is a gifted author in my opinion. Each of her stories have multiple facets. Maisie's personal growth which includes her ability to really look at herself as honestly as she can, the stories concerning her characters where she sees them factually and as non-judgemental as possible, and an in-depth look into the world as it once was that you can't get from a history book. Her writing draws you in so that it is hard to put the book away. There are other reviews that cover this story so I won't repeat the overview. I am glad that I am reading the books in order and would recommend others do so. I looked for other authors who write similarly to Winspear and, when finished with this series, will read them and hopefully find them as thought provoking and entertaining as the Maisie Dobbs protagonist.
