Jacqueline Winspear’s Elegy for Eddie opens in London, 1933, where Eddie Pettit, a gentle soul more boy than man, has died in a violent accident. His friends and neighbors believe Eddie was murdered, and when the police won't investigate, their only hope is private investigator Maisie Dobbs. Determined to do right by Eddie, Maisie searches for answers amid the working-class streets of Lambeth, where he lived. But when Maisie’s assistant, Billy, takes a beating, narrowly escaping death, and she uncovers two “suicides” with ties to Eddie, she is convinced these loose threads of intrigue will lead to someone with power, money—and no conscience. The question is: What did Eddie know? And Maisie won’t rest till she learns the answer.

This was the first Maisie Dobbs book that I've read. Now I want to read the others.
I've read all of the Maisie Dobbs books and am hooked on them. Please continue to
I Love Maisie Dobbs! While this was not my favorite, Winspear does a fabulous job of giving us a complex, conflicted character against a background of a society recovering from one war as it faces the next. Several threads leave me anxious for the next MD title.

I have read all the Maisie Dobbs mysteries and this one may be my favorite. The focus on Maisie's struggle to come to terms with her new position and how to use it was really presented well. As always, the book is a blend of on the ground work and the psychological. Winspear does not disappoint and she keeps me wanting more!
