London, 1931. Nick Bassington-Hope, veteran of the Great War and controversial artist, is suddenly found dead. His death from a fall, the night before a much-anticipated exhibition of his work, is recorded as "accidental". But his sister is not convinced. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Georgina Bassington-Hope believes her brother was murdered, and she turns to Maisie Dobbs for help. Maisie's investigation takes her from the desolate beaches of Kent to the dark underbelly of London's art world. Still fragile after her war-related breakdown, Maisie's immersion in her work could lead her to lose more than she bargained for, while a desperate family with strong ties to her heart urgently needs her help.

I love the Maise Dobbs series. They are mysteries (or probably a better description is detective stories) set in England. THe first book is set in 1929 or 30 and they go on from there chronologically. So far in the ones I've read there's always a connection to World War I and how those events continued to shape the lives of people for the next decades.

The books are well plotted, have strong ongoing character development, fascinating period details and lots of historical context. Plus some detective work, some romance and very little gore.
