内容紹介

London, 1933. Some two months after an Indian woman, Usha Pramal, is found murdered in a South London canal, her brother turns to Maisie Dobbs to find the truth about her death. Not only has Scotland Yard made no arrests, but evidence indicates they failed to conduct a full and thorough investigation. Before her death, Usha was staying at an ayah's hostel, a refuge for Indian women whose British employers had turned them out. As Maisie learns, Usha was different from the hostel's other lodgers. But with this discovery comes new danger — soon another Indian woman who was close to Usha is found murdered before she can speak out. As Maisie is pulled deeper into an unfamiliar yet alluring subculture, her investigation becomes clouded by the unfinished business of a previous case. And at the same time her lover, James Compton, gives her an ultimatum she cannot ignore...

5つ星のうち 3.0 Leaving Everything Most Loved by Jacqueline Winspear: A review 2015/5/31
投稿者 PlantBirdWoman - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I decided to go ahead and read the last Jacqueline Winspear book that I had on Kindle just to get it out of my queue. It had been there for a long time and I was tired of seeing it. It turns out that this entry marks something of an end to one chapter of Maisie Dobbs' life and so it is a good "ending," a good place for me to pause in my reading of the Dobbs saga and move on to something else for a while.

Dobbs is dissatisfied with her life. She is a successful businesswoman, fabulously wealthy thanks to a bequest from her mentor, has a good and caring (and rich) man as a lover, and is well-respected everywhere she goes. In short, everyone loves Maisie, so why wouldn't she be discontented? Yeah, right!

This is actually one of the things that annoys me about this character. She really seems to have little actual depth of understanding of just how lucky she is. Oh, she gives lip service to such understanding, but it seems about paper-thin depth. Moreover, she never really faces any disapproval from society about her life or any major obstacles to her achieving her aims. Yes, everyone loves Maisie. It strains credulity.

Maisie's discontent this time is rooted in the fact that she doesn't really want to get married, although her lover is pressing her to do so, and she wants to travel, to visit distant lands as her mentor Maurice did. To do that would mean closing down her detective agency, but then what would become of her two employees? Not to worry! Everything falls magically into place, as it always does in the world of Maisie Dobbs.

Maisie decides that she wants to go to India, and what do you know? Just a couple of months before, an Indian woman living in London was murdered. The police have been unsuccessful in solving the crime. Indeed, they don't seem to have expended much effort on it. As Inspector Caldwell admits to Maisie, no one was pressing them for a solution.

Then the woman's brother shows up. He has traveled from India to light a fire under the investigation and find out what happened to his sister. Maisie Dobbs' name was given to him by one of his fellow countrymen who had been another mentor and adviser to Maisie. When he speaks to Caldwell, the police agree to contract with Maisie to carry on the investigation and try to bring some justice to the dead woman.

It turns out to be a complicated mystery that has roots stretching all the way back to India, and soon it becomes even more complicated when a friend of the murdered woman is also killed in the same manner as the first. As Maisie becomes more deeply involved in the investigation, she is more and more intrigued by Indian culture and by the Indians that she meets in the course of her inquiries, all of which makes her more definite than ever that she wants to travel to that exotic land.

But first she has to wrap up her investigation.

She does, of course, with minimal help this time from her assistant Billy Beale who is still suffering from the injuries that he sustained in Elegy for Eddie or her secretary Sandra who is slowly emerging from her widow's shell and taking an interest in life once again.

So, everything gets tied up in a neat little bow. The villain is arrested, but he isn't really such a villain, even though he has murdered two women. He's a victim, too.

The lives of everyone she cares about have now fallen into place, just as Maisie would have wanted, so she is free to move on to her own future. That moving on proceeds slowly as we are treated to a long summing up of Maisie's life so far and as she looks forward to her trip to India. But finally, she's on the boat and on her way.

It's a little difficult to see just where Winspear is going with this, but there are several more entries in the series, so undoubtedly, she has a plan. I think it would be interesting to see, just once, something not work out exactly as Maisie wants it to. Maybe the ship sinks on the way to India, or she loses all her money and is left with nothing but her native resources, or her lover James finally gets fed up with her dithering and marries that dashing young aviatrix with whom he seems to have a lot in common. Well, I can dream, can't I?

5つ星のうち 2.0 Big Disappointment 2014/5/9
投稿者 MysteryBuff - (Amazon.com)

The first books of the series were excellent. By the time Winspear got to Elegy for Eddie, the quality had noticeably slipped but was still very readable. This (final?) book of the series was very poorly written and the story did not hang together. It read like an eBook that was written as fast as possible to get it published. It is badly in need of an editor. The characters had lost their unique personalities--they spoke and acted totally out of character. Had to reread pages several times to figure out who was speaking. Grammar, typically appropriate to each character, was poor even for the highly educated characters. Maisie did things that were so unlike her, such as walking over to Billy and giving him a shoulder massage in the middle of a conversation. Maisie would never have done that. The Maisie in earlier books spoke often of being careful of touch because it was a powerful tool to be used only rarely and with great caution. The sentence structure, previously excellent, was atrocious, requiring my having to reread passages over and over to understand what she was trying to convey. It read like an author was tired of the series and just wanted to dash off something to end it. I will no longer buy Winspear's books without checking out reviews and perhaps skimming the book in a library first. A sad way to finish up an otherwise very good series.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Too much angst 2016/7/27
投稿者 Ms Illini - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I have loved the Maisie Dobbs series, however this book and Elegy for Eddie became weighed down with too much teenage angst. Maisie is too old , too experienced, and too well educated to be so lost about who she is and what she wants. Maisie is very selfish on her relationship with James, I was reminded of the old Supreme's song, You Keep Me Hanging On! Always a good read, I am tired of her self pity. I am also incredulous that she has only made one friend her entire life. No one from the old neighborhood? No other nurse from France or later? No one from University? Most warm and caring people make friends as they go through life, especially during school and war.

5つ星のうち 2.0 ends 2013/4/28
投稿者 mccrystle - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This novel seems to have been written by an author tired of her series. Her continuing characters are flat on the page, their story lines dealt with dispatch, neatly but not believably. The new characters are sketched in, defined in two dimensional terms, making it hard to care about any of them. This is disappointing as her previous efforts made the reader care about the people. It appears that this is either the series ending or a way of clearing out for an entirely new stage for Maisie Dobbs. For a better story of an Indian woman meeting European ways see The Indian Bride (Inspector Sejer Mysteries)

5つ星のうち 5.0 My favorite one in the series so far 2016/7/5
投稿者 Patricia Gibbs - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This book I thought was the best one in the Maisie Dobbs series. So far I have read all of them, and in order. What I really enjoyed about this book was the character development. So many of the other books in the series focused on events as well as character development. This book was focused on a murder as all of them are, however the author focused more on the restlessness of Maisie and how Maisie needed to make a significant change in her life. Everything also seemed to come together for Maisie by the end of the book but the end of this book is just the beginning of what comes next for her.
