"A novel that appeals equally to the intellect and the emotions, To Die but Once advances Maisie's engaging story and reaffirms Winspear's eminence in her field.... [A] radiant series."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"History comes alive when a character you think of as a friend is in the thick of the action. That's how Jacqueline Winspear keeps her Maisie Dobbs series so fresh."--New York Times Book Review
"In addition to providing a very good mystery, Winspear does a smashing job describing the bravery exhibited by everyday Britons as the fear of invasion becomes ever more real."--Kirkus
"Maisie Dobbs is always looking for truth and the underlying motives in her cases. Her stories are ones that this reviewer always wants to read because of her character, values and thoughts on life.... A story about WWII and England that is close to the heart."--Bookreporter.com
"The wartime details ... transport us with ease to a milieu where danger is omnipresent but--thanks to the presence of steadfast figures like Dobbs and her like-spirited colleagues--so is hope." --Wall Street Journal
"Winspear has created another rich reading experience for Maisie's many fans, but this title could be seen as entry point for new fans as well. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy a thoughtful mystery."--Library Journal, starred review
"Winspear's protagonist is indomitable and vulnerable, brilliant and kind."--Chelsea Clinton in Entertainment Weekly --This text refers to the paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Spring, 1940. During the months following Britain's declaration of war on Germany, Maisie Dobbs investigates the disappearance of a young apprentice working on a hush-hush government contract. As news of the plight of thousands of soldiers stranded on the beaches of France is gradually revealed to the general public, and as the threat of invasion rises, another young man beloved by Maisie makes a terrible decision that will change his life forever.
Maisie's investigation leads her from the countryside of rural Hampshire to the web of wartime opportunism exploited by one of the London underworld's most powerful men, in a case that serves as a reminder of the inextricable link between money and war. Yet when a final confrontation approaches, she must acknowledge the potential cost to her future--and the risk of destroying a dream she wants very much to become reality.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I found the entire series to be very enjoyable. A bit different from the usual detective yarn. I'm looking forward to the next one - due in a couple of months.
anxiously awaiting the next one!!
