Product description

Product Description

Early 1938. The German government has agreed to release a British subject from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family member. Because the man’s wife is dead and his daughter ailing, the Secret Service wants Maisie Dobbs – who bears a striking resemblance to the daughter – to retrieve the man from Dachau Prison, on the outskirts of Munich.

Travelling into the heart of Nazi Germany, Maisie encounters unexpected dangers and finds herself questioning whether it’s time to return to the work she loved. But the Secret Service may have other ideas . . .

Join Maisie Dobbs as she travels into the heart of the Third Reich as the shadows of war lengthen.

Having read a few of her books this novel was a slightly different situation for Maisie. It had some mystery and intrigue and was a good read but somehow petered out with a simplistic ending. However did enjoy the story. Recommended.

I read the first book in Jacqueline Winspear's wonderful Maisie Dobbs series back in 2003 - and was promptly hooked. The latest entry (#12) - Journey to Munich - is newly released.

Maisie has been many things - housemaid, student, nurse, psychologist, private investigator and an agent for the British Secret Service. Maisie is such a wonderfully drawn character - her intellect, determination, courage, kindness, loyalty and stalwartness have all endeared her to me. Winspear has moved Maisie's personal life along from that first book - although not always in a direction I wanted - and I have happily followed along.

But I also appreciate Winspear's plotting. She draws on historical fact, social mores and customs of the time periods and mixes in an always intriguing mystery.

The series began in the years of WW1 and Journey to Munich finds us on the cusp of WWII. A British citizen has been held captive for two years in Dachau. The Germans have agreed to his release - but only to a family member. Maisie is sent in to facilitate that release, appearing as the man's daughter. I found the impetus for this plotline fascinating....

"Journey to Munich was inspired by a story told by my mother of a man she worked for in 1944, when she was seventeen years old.......told her that before the war he had been set free from a German concentration camp into the hands of the British government after they had paid for his release."

A secondary plotline involving someone from Maisie's recent past tests her personally. There were a few plot points that thought were a bit unrealistic, but they didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.

Author Jacqueline Winspear created her "Maisie Dobbs" character in her first series book, "Maisie Dobbs", back in 2003.There've been 12 books so far, with this book, "Journey to Munich", as the latest. From the beginning of her series, the character of Maisie Dobbs was drawn very carefully; with an interesting back story that included both Maisie and people who influenced her life's journey. The plots of the first six or so were equally well drawn, but after with her seventh or so book, it seemed as if Winspear was bored with her characters. Both the plots and characters seemed almost to be "phoned in". Her previous book, "A Dangerous Place", was an improvement on those few middling ones, and this one seems to be moving in the right direction.

As long-time readers know, the Dobbs books are set in London, and most were examinations of the city and it's people after the Great War. Maisie had psychiatric training from her mentor, Maurice Blanche, and ran a detective agency. She married, was widowed, sought time and space to recover. As the series continued, time moved on as well. Soon we were in 1938, as the Nazis had come to full power in Germany. Maisie was asked by the government agents if she could go to Munich and extricate a British national who was captured by the Nazis and was being held at Dachau. The German government agreed to free the scientist as long as he was accompanied home by a close relative. As the man's daughter was dying, Maisie was hired by the British government to take her place. She was trained and sent off to Munich. She was also supposed to find the daughter of some acquaintances she had a history with, and persuade her to return to London.

As always, Maisie Dobbs fans will not be disappointed . The observations of the period so well presented and the characters who inhabit the pages take the reader completely into their world. She never disappoints us as she deals with the issues and challenges put in her way. I eagerly await the next in the series.
