Journey to Munich

Maisie Dobbs - A Maisie Dobbs Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Working with the British Secret Service on an undercover mission, Maisie Dobbs is sent to Hitler’s Germany in this thrilling tale of danger and intrigue—the twelfth novel in Jacqueline Winspear’s New York Times bestselling “series that seems to get better with each entry” (Wall Street Journal).

It’s early 1938, and Maisie Dobbs is back in England. On a fine yet chilly morning, as she walks towards Fitzroy Square—a place of many memories—she is intercepted by Brian Huntley and Robert MacFarlane of the Secret Service. The German government has agreed to release a British subject from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family member. Because the man’s wife is bedridden and his daughter has been killed in an accident, the Secret Service wants Maisie—who bears a striking resemblance to the daughter—to retrieve the man from Dachau, on the outskirts of Munich.

The British government is not alone in its interest in Maisie’s travel plans. Her nemesis—the man she holds responsible for her husband’s death—has learned of her journey, and is also desperate for her help.

Traveling into the heart of Nazi Germany, Maisie encounters unexpected dangers—and finds herself questioning whether it’s time to return to the work she loved. But the Secret Service may have other ideas. . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 25, 2016 – Winspear's subpar 12th Maisie Dobbs novel (after 2015's A Dangerous Place) finds Maisie still struggling with a double tragedy. Her beloved husband, James, died during the test of an experimental fighter plane, and the shock of witnessing the accident caused Maisie to miscarry. Meanwhile, the British Secret Service taps her for a mission into Nazi Germany on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938. Engineer Leon Donat is being held in Dachau after being arrested for involvement in the production of an underground newspaper. The Germans agree to release Donat but only to a family member. Since his one surviving relative, his grown daughter, is seriously ill, Maisie is to impersonate her to gain Donat's freedom. As if that assignment isn't perilous enough, Maisie also agrees to look for a woman who has disappeared in Munich, the person who should have piloted the fighter instead of James. Maisie is unconvincing as an undercover operative, and the plot relies too heavily on contrivances.

Customer Reviews

Journey to Munich

This Maisie Dobbs series just gets better with
each book. I would advise the reader to start
with "Maisie Dobbs" , the first book in this
delightful, thoughtful and truly intelligent, as well
as common sense based series. Reading
in order takes you on a journey thru time with
every emotion possible.

For slow readers

Book takes forever. Mostly talking, goes on and on.

Quality Writing

I agreed that starting with the first novel in this series is the best way to approach these books – as each one served as a foundation for the next. I really like historical novels - you learn a lot about the times they are set in. Quality writing - each book excellent! I can also understand how someone might do them as "slow "reading but they are about the process as much as they are about the adventure.
