Maisie Dobbs—one of the most complex and admirable characters in contemporary fiction (Richmond Times Dispatch)—faces danger and intrigue on the home front during World War II. During the months following Britain’s declaration of war on Germany, Maisie Dobbs investigates the disappearance of a young apprentice working on a hush-hush government contract. As news of the plight of thousands of soldiers stranded on the beaches of France is gradually revealed to the general public, and the threat of invasion rises, another young man beloved by Maisie makes a terrible decision that will change his life forever. Maisie’s investigation leads her from the countryside of rural Hampshire to the web of wartime opportunism exploited by one of the London underworld’s most powerful men, in a case that serves as a reminder of the inextricable link between money and war. Yet when a final confrontation approaches, she must acknowledge the potential cost to her future—and the risk of destroying a dream she wants very much to become reality.

John Brown is excellent on this book, and it certainly is worth owning. Spurgeon reports that Dr. David Smith says of this work, 'There is not a single instance of carelessness in investigating the true meaning of a text, or of timidity in stating the conclusion at which the author has arrived.' Spurgeon adds, 'What more could be said in praise of any exposition.' John Brown of Edinburgh is a superior expositor, and his work on this book proves it again.
In the 1960's marked changes occurred throughout the world in philosophies and policies related to man's role in life. These changes, prompted predominantly by extensive increases in knowledge and popula tion density, have produced increased pleasures as well as problems. The rising number of people and improved methods of communication and transportation have caused more relationships among people, with their pleasures, competitions, jealousies, conflicts of interest, oppressions, and crimes. Large assortments of drugs have been developed and are easily obtained. There are drugs to speed us up, slow us down, make us sleep, change our perspectives on life, promote propagation of life or prevent it, prolong life or terminate it, and modify the course of life in many ways. Also, numerous mechanical devices have been developed that influence the propagation of life, the termination of life, and the manner in which we live. Many people have changed their overall goals in life, and in par ticular have experienced major changes in attitudes and policies applying to sexual activity, marriage, birth control, abortion, welfare, children, old people, criminals, economics, social status, careers, education, euthanasia, and suicide. There also has been marked enlightenment concerning the effect of the chemical and physical status of the brain upon normal and abnormal thinking and behavior.

The guy, who teaches high school math, was a baseball star in college and has been a songwriter for the last thirty years. Yet in private, behind the mask I’ve so meticulously molded, I’ve been living with a deep and sometimes paralyzing fear. That fear is.... I’m afraid to die.... ....This book is about my journey into that world and my efforts to face that fear, a fear that I believe hides deep within the silent recesses of everyone’s soul, and to see if there’s a way out....
