Maisie Dobbs

Leaving Everything Most Loved

A Maisie Dobbs Novel

About the Book

In Leaving Everything Most Loved by New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of Indian immigrants in London.
 
The year is 1933. Maisie Dobbs is contacted by an Indian gentleman who has come to England in the hopes of finding out who killed his sister two months ago. Scotland Yard failed to make any arrest in the case, and there is reason to believe they failed to conduct a thorough investigation. The case becomes even more challenging when another Indian woman is murdered just hours before a scheduled interview. Meanwhile, unfinished business from a previous case becomes a distraction, as does a new development in Maisie's personal life.
 
Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved marks a pivotal moment in this outstanding mystery series.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Delves deeply into [Maisy’s] complicated relationships and hints at a compelling future.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The cross-cultural theme adds another dimension to Winspear’s London of 1933….This tenth Maisie Dobbs mystery continues the series’ high quality, capturing a time and place and featuring a protagonist as compassionate as she is intuitive. A fine historical mystery with broad appeal.” —Booklist

“Parting is such sweet sorrow….Winspear adroitly weaves a mystery involving tensions with race, class, and even love….Highly recommended for fans of strong women detectives.” —Susan Moritz, Library Journal

“To remain connected to life’s possibilities, one’s mind must be open to change….It’s a concept that Winspear explores with grace and generosity in Leaving Everything Most Loved.” —Jay Strafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Psychology and private investigation: an unlikely combination of professions, especially for a woman in the 1930s. And yet Maisie Dobbs does both, brilliantly.” —Adam Woog, Seattle Times Book Review
