Soho Crime is pleased to re-introduce Jacqueline Winspear’s classic novel, "Maisie Dobbs", to the Soho Crime list. Originally published by Soho Crime in 2004, this newly packaged 10th Anniversary paperback edition features a special afterword from the author.
Critically acclaimed and widely lauded, "Maisie Dobbs" was named a 2004 "New York Times Notable Book", won the 2004 Agatha Award for Best First Novel, received the 2004 Macavity Award for Best First Novel, and was an Alex Award Winner in 2004. Maisie Dobbs has become one of literature’s favorite sleuths, as evidenced by the sale of over one million copies since the original publication.
When "Maisie Dobbs" was first published, “The Associated Press” said “Winspear created a winning character”; “Publishers Weekly” declared it “a delightful mix of mystery, war story and romance'; and "The New York Times" urged readers to “prepare to be astonished.” Ten years later, readers still are.
The praise for “Maisie Dobbs” continued in the June 11th, 2014 issue of “The New York Times Book Review", as Hillary Clinton, in the By the Book Column, declared Jacqueline Winspear an author she “automatically” reads. Citing a love for “series that follow particular characters over time and through their experiences,” Clinton included Jacqueline Winspear among her favorite contemporary writers.
Since the original publication of "Maisie Dobbs", Jacqueline Winspear has written nine more novels in the series, including the "New York Times" bestselling "Among the Mad" and "An Incomplete Revenge". Her most recent novel is "The Care and Management of Lies: A Novel of the Great War" (July 2014, Harper). Originally from the United Kingdom, Winspear now lives in California.
