Book four in the Maisie Dobbs Mystery series is every bit as good as the others and there's more tension and suspense. Maisie is called upon to discover if the accident that killed an artist was really an accident or if it was murder. In her pursuit to find the truth, she questions her motives in becoming a private investigator. In the end she does uncover the truth of the accident and discovers some things about herself as well.
I liked this passage towards the end of the book:
The sea lapped even closer; though Maisie remained in place, her hands holding her collar to protect her neck. It's because it's the beginning, and also the end. That was what she loved about the place where the water met the land - the promise of something fresh, a suggestion that, even if what is happening now is to be suffered, there is an end and a beginning. I could sail away on that beginning, thought Maisie.I already have book five and I've added it to my list for the Cardathon Challenge so I'll be able to read it in the near future.
