From the inside front cover:"Early April 1933. To the costermongers of Covent Garden - - sellers of fruit and vegetables on the streets of London - - Eddie Pettit was a gentle soul with a near-magical gift for working with horses. When Eddie is killed in a violent accident, the grieving costers are deeply skeptical about the cause of his death. Who would want to kill Eddie - - and why?"

Finished reading this book today - - another beautifully written book in the Maisie Dobbs series. I love how Maisie's character keeps evolving in each book, and in the pages of this one the complex layers of her character continue to emerge. The research that has been done by the author to capture details of pre-WWII in England add such credibility to the story and provide insight into history in the making.

I think this book is the best one yet in this series. Maisie is a complicated person in many ways, which I already knew, but even more aspects of her were revealed in this book. I really want Maisie and James to make it together as a couple, but that is still up in the air, although their relationship keeps evolving. Maisie is a single woman in her mid 30's running a successful business (unusual for the time period of the 1930's) and very good at what she does, but when it comes to her personal life, things are much more complicated, partly due to the class system which existed in England at the time. She also enjoys the love and companionship of a lover, but needs time on her own and seems afraid to commit. It will be interesting to see where things go from here. The story of her case involving Eddie was also intriguing, but this time I was more taken with the aspects of Maisie herself. It is so good to know that there are more books in this series to continue the story!
