2018 book 66

Jacqueline Winspear's To Die But Once
The Maisie Dobbs books are well into WWII now; the mystery plot here involves the murder of a young boy who's part of a team working to fireproof Air Force bases. As usual with these books, the mystery is almost a sidebar to everything going on with the characters—and since they’re at war, there’s a lot going on. I do sometimes wish Winspear would try a bit more subtlety—all her characters are sort of psychic, or laying on dire pronouncements about war—but I still enjoy these books a lot. B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book is available now.
