Spring 1940.  Months after declaring war on Germany, Britain is confronted with one of the bleakest moments in the war--much of their army is trapped between the ocean and the blitzkreig of the German army--in a place called Dunkirk.  Investigator/Psychologist Maisie Dobbs is experiencing her own troubles at the same time.  While investigating the disappearance of a young apprentice who has been working on a top secret government project, Maisie discovers that someone close to her has made a terrible decision that will alter his life forever.  Readers of the series will not be disappointed in this 14th installment of Maisie's story.  New readers to the series will be able to read this novel as a standalone book, although reading the previous books will give the new reader a greater insight into the characters' backstories.  Fans of Laurie King, Rhys Bowen, Louise Penny and Alan Bradley will love this cozy mystery.
