Elegy for Eddie (Maisie Dobbs #9)

Elegy for Eddie by Jacqueline Winspear is the ninth book in her Maisie Dobbs series - an historical mystery series set in London in the early twentieth century.

When a group of costermongers (vegetable sellers) who used to work with Maisie's father come to tell her of the death of Eddie Pettit, Maisie begins an investigation close to her heart. She has known Eddie most of her life. He was the gentle giant who had a gift with horses.

Now Eddie is dead - killed in an accident in a newspaper factory. The costermongers do not think it was an accident. They are sure that someone had it in for Eddie.

Winspear delights readers with the latest installment of the Maisie Dobbs series. These books are always engaging, historically accurate and filled with compelling characters.

As a prolific reader it is hard to say who is my favorite author or which series is my absolute favorite, but I can say that the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear is in the top five...maybe the top three.
