The American Agent Reviews

    Feb 10, 2019

    I have been reading this series from book one; this is book fifteen. In this episode Maisie is helping the American Agent that helped her escape from Munich in 1938. They are attempting to solve the London murder of an American reporter. The Germans are bombing England and Maisie and f...

    I really like this series and have been reading it for years. Unfortunately, I appeared to have missed one and I would have liked to have read it before this one. I would like to have met Mark Scott and read his adventures with Maisie before tackling this one but I was able to keep up....

    How I loved this book! It may be the first Maisie Dobbs novel I've read but it certainly won't be the last. Such a moving, evocative portrayal of London and Kent under attack from the Blitz in the last weeks of 1940, and a fascinating mystery investigated by a woman I adored. There wer...

    The American Agent has made me a very happy reader. Firstly, because I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Secondly, because it?s introduced me to a new historical crime series (a genre I love) to follow in future. Thirdly because, being the fifteenth in the series, it means I?ve got four...

    I think one thing I appreciate most about Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series is the author's allowing her heroine and those in her universe to experience life's ups and downs without pulling any punches. Maisie has experienced tremendous loss in her life, but manages to take the...

    Maisie Dobbs is just one of my favorite mystery series! Winspear does a fabulous job of incorporating the time and place. This book takes place during the Blitz of London and you really get a feel for what that might have been like. ...

    This story takes place in the 1940s during the London Blitz. Maisie Dobbs and her BFF, Priscilla Partridge served as ambulance drivers helping the wounded from the bombs dropped nightly on London. They meet Catherine Saxon, an American war correspondent on one of their drives. She is l...

    Brava Ms Winspear. You and Maisie have outdone yourselves. Another good mystery, but the real brilliance of this book and others in this series is Jacqueline Winspear?s superlative ability to pull the reader into the time and place of the story. Through her descriptions of her cha...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s March, which means it?s time for this year?s Maisie Dobbs adventure. I?m just sorry her publisher isn?t sponsoring the ?Month of Maisie? any longer, as that always made for a terrific excuse to pick up one of the earlier boo...

    I do love a Maisie Dobbs story and have been reading Jacqueline Winspear?s fab series for years, not always in order as it depends what the library has in stock, but one thing?s for sure, I always love catching up with Maisie. I love finding out what?s going in her personal and p...

    The latest Maisie Dobbs ? The American Agent by Jacqueline Winspear is coming out on the 26th of March and I was lucky enough to get a review copy via Edelweiss. Thank you so much. Naturally, I do not want to talk to much about the plot, this is book 15 in the series and naturally...

    I'd give this about a 3.75 if I could. The war years continue to be a vast improvement in the Maisie Dobbs series--I guess Winspear's writing itself has improved, though there's still a humorless edge to her books that makes the characters flatter than they could be. And the sticking p...

    It's September, 1940, and the German Luftwaffe is blitzing bombs down on London nightly. Maisie, who you may recall was a nurse on the battlefields in France during WWI, and her best friend Priscilla Partridge have volunteered to be ambulance drivers, doing what they can night after ni...

    MAISIE RETURNS AS BLITZ RAINS TERROR ON LONDON The latest in the beloved Maisie Dobbs? series wins on all fronts! It features my fave historical mystery character during my fave historical period. BLITZ The victim, Catherine Saxon, is an American reporting from London during t...

    The sense of living ?ironically, fearfully, courageously, determinedly? through the experience of the London blitz along with the characters is the highlight of this installment in the Maisie Dobbs series. Increasingly, though, I wish for a more complex protagonist. Maisie is i...

    Once again Jacqueline Winspear has written a Maisie Dobbs mystery that takes us into England's traumatic past. Her excellent novels about World War I have led to excellent novels about World War II. This novel is about the blitz, which was even more terrifying than I had imagined. The ...

    Wonderful ...

    Winspear continues her wonderful historical mystery series set in England in the early 20th century. It's a turning point for Maisie as she realizes the importance of family and good friends during the Blitz. I especially enjoyed the references to Joseph Kennedy, who was the American a...

    It is the middle of the London Blitz, and Maisie Dobbs is still operating as a volunteer ambulance driver, and waiting for the decision about whether or not she can adopt Anna, the evacuee that she has guardianship of. Things get complicated, however, when Maisie is pulled in to invest...

    I have read the Maisie Dobbs series in order. I think the plot of this case was one of the cleverest Jacqueline Winspear has devised. Set in 1940, the novel takes place during the London blitz and has two compelling threads: solving the murder of a promising young journalist and settin...

    One of my very favorites in this series! We, along with Maisie, see a very different side of WWII as she both works on an ambulance crew as well as investigates the murder of an American journalist. I really enjoyed the personal aspects of Maisie's life and hope the author continues th...

    Vintage Maisie!!! Yay. Thank you Emilie for loaning me an ARC. ...

    I have read the Maisie Dobbs series in order. I think the plot of this case was one of the cleverest Jacqueline Winspear has devised. Set in 1940, the novel takes place during the London blitz and has two compelling threads: solving the murder of a promising young journalist and settin...

    One of my very favorites in this series! We, along with Maisie, see a very different side of WWII as she both works on an ambulance crew as well as investigates the murder of an American journalist. I really enjoyed the personal aspects of Maisie's life and hope the author continues th...

    Vintage Maisie!!! Yay. Thank you Emilie for loaning me an ARC. ...

    Wonderful!!! last couple in series haven't been particularly memorable but loved these characters and story! ...

    Fantastic book! ...

    Another moving and well constructed story. ...

    In The American Agent, the fifteenth novel in the Maisie Dobbs series, we find our titular heroine working as a volunteer ambulance driver during the 1940 London Blitz. A tale of triumph over tragedy, it is sure to please the author?s many fans. While the mystery portion might work f...

    Over the last few years I have tried dozens and dozens of historical mysteries with supposedly strong female leads and none of them have come close to Maisie Dobbs. The stories just flow and it is so easy to fall into them and be carried along. There is also a really depth and subst...

    I couldn?t put this down. The characters, both new and old, were so very sympathetic, and this reader, like Maisie, wanted justice for poor Cath. Winspear does a tremendous job of conveying the horrors of London during the bombings, and the tension of the atmosphere. I only wish this...

    I have been reading this series from book one; this is book fifteen. In this episode Maisie is helping the American Agent that helped her escape from Munich in 1938. They are attempting to solve the London murder of an American reporter. The Germans are bombing England and Maisie and f...

    How I loved this book! It may be the first Maisie Dobbs novel I've read but it certainly won't be the last. Such a moving, evocative portrayal of London and Kent under attack from the Blitz in the last weeks of 1940, and a fascinating mystery investigated by a woman I adored. There wer...

    The American Agent has made me a very happy reader. Firstly, because I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Secondly, because it?s introduced me to a new historical crime series (a genre I love) to follow in future. Thirdly because, being the fifteenth in the series, it means I?ve got four...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s March, which means it?s time for this year?s Maisie Dobbs adventure. I?m just sorry her publisher isn?t sponsoring the ?Month of Maisie? any longer, as that always made for a terrific excuse to pick up one of the earlier boo...

    I do love a Maisie Dobbs story and have been reading Jacqueline Winspear?s fab series for years, not always in order as it depends what the library has in stock, but one thing?s for sure, I always love catching up with Maisie. I love finding out what?s going in her personal and p...

    The latest Maisie Dobbs ? The American Agent by Jacqueline Winspear is coming out on the 26th of March and I was lucky enough to get a review copy via Edelweiss. Thank you so much. Naturally, I do not want to talk to much about the plot, this is book 15 in the series and naturally...

    I'd give this about a 3.75 if I could. The war years continue to be a vast improvement in the Maisie Dobbs series--I guess Winspear's writing itself has improved, though there's still a humorless edge to her books that makes the characters flatter than they could be. And the sticking p...

    Once again Jacqueline Winspear has written a Maisie Dobbs mystery that takes us into England's traumatic past. Her excellent novels about World War I have led to excellent novels about World War II. This novel is about the blitz, which was even more terrifying than I had imagined. The ...

    I'd give this about a 3.75 if I could. The war years continue to be a vast improvement in the Maisie Dobbs series--I guess Winspear's writing itself has improved, though there's still a humorless edge to her books that makes the characters flatter than they could be. And the sticking p...

    It's September, 1940, and the German Luftwaffe is blitzing bombs down on London nightly. Maisie, who you may recall was a nurse on the battlefields in France during WWI, and her best friend Priscilla Partridge have volunteered to be ambulance drivers, doing what they can night after ni...

    The sense of living ?ironically, fearfully, courageously, determinedly? through the experience of the London blitz along with the characters is the highlight of this installment in the Maisie Dobbs series. Increasingly, though, I wish for a more complex protagonist. Maisie is i...

    Once again Jacqueline Winspear has written a Maisie Dobbs mystery that takes us into England's traumatic past. Her excellent novels about World War I have led to excellent novels about World War II. This novel is about the blitz, which was even more terrifying than I had imagined. The ...

    Wonderful ...

    Winspear continues her wonderful historical mystery series set in England in the early 20th century. It's a turning point for Maisie as she realizes the importance of family and good friends during the Blitz. I especially enjoyed the references to Joseph Kennedy, who was the American a...

    It is the middle of the London Blitz, and Maisie Dobbs is still operating as a volunteer ambulance driver, and waiting for the decision about whether or not she can adopt Anna, the evacuee that she has guardianship of. Things get complicated, however, when Maisie is pulled in to invest...

    I have read the Maisie Dobbs series in order. I think the plot of this case was one of the cleverest Jacqueline Winspear has devised. Set in 1940, the novel takes place during the London blitz and has two compelling threads: solving the murder of a promising young journalist and settin...

    One of my very favorites in this series! We, along with Maisie, see a very different side of WWII as she both works on an ambulance crew as well as investigates the murder of an American journalist. I really enjoyed the personal aspects of Maisie's life and hope the author continues th...

    Vintage Maisie!!! Yay. Thank you Emilie for loaning me an ARC. ...

    Wonderful!!! last couple in series haven't been particularly memorable but loved these characters and story! ...

    I really like this series and have been reading it for years. Unfortunately, I appeared to have missed one and I would have liked to have read it before this one. I would like to have met Mark Scott and read his adventures with Maisie before tackling this one but I was able to keep up....

    How I loved this book! It may be the first Maisie Dobbs novel I've read but it certainly won't be the last. Such a moving, evocative portrayal of London and Kent under attack from the Blitz in the last weeks of 1940, and a fascinating mystery investigated by a woman I adored. There wer...

    The American Agent has made me a very happy reader. Firstly, because I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Secondly, because it?s introduced me to a new historical crime series (a genre I love) to follow in future. Thirdly because, being the fifteenth in the series, it means I?ve got four...

    I think one thing I appreciate most about Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series is the author's allowing her heroine and those in her universe to experience life's ups and downs without pulling any punches. Maisie has experienced tremendous loss in her life, but manages to take the...

    Maisie Dobbs is just one of my favorite mystery series! Winspear does a fabulous job of incorporating the time and place. This book takes place during the Blitz of London and you really get a feel for what that might have been like. ...

    This story takes place in the 1940s during the London Blitz. Maisie Dobbs and her BFF, Priscilla Partridge served as ambulance drivers helping the wounded from the bombs dropped nightly on London. They meet Catherine Saxon, an American war correspondent on one of their drives. She is l...

    Brava Ms Winspear. You and Maisie have outdone yourselves. Another good mystery, but the real brilliance of this book and others in this series is Jacqueline Winspear?s superlative ability to pull the reader into the time and place of the story. Through her descriptions of her cha...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s March, which means it?s time for this year?s Maisie Dobbs adventure. I?m just sorry her publisher isn?t sponsoring the ?Month of Maisie? any longer, as that always made for a terrific excuse to pick up one of the earlier boo...
