    Good Followup
    I just finished reading An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear and found it to be a very pleasurable experience. Although the book is the fourth installment of a series it can be read as a stand alone novel without too much distraction from previous events. Ms Winspear has created an extremely likable, sympathetic protagonist and in general the development of all characters is excellent. The research into the history of the time and other cultures is superb. The only fault in an otherwise marvelous novel is that the plot is not compelling and is even predictable although it is beautifully told. I believe that readers who enjoy strong character development and "people" novels will be as pleased with this book as I was.

    An Incomplete Revenge
    World War I has been over for more than ten years, but its events still cause repercussions for Maisie Dobbs in An Incomplete Revenge, the fifth adventure of the unconventional investigator. Investigating suspicious property crimes, Maisie asks questions in the village of Herondene. Local gentry and villagers' secrets are revealed as she investigates. Readers learn more of Maisie's history and speculate about her future when some ties to her past are severed. A caring person, Maisie becomes involved with those she investigates. Another great adventure set in a time mostly forgotten, it also delves into social and economic ills of the time. Highly readable and well written.

    An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear
    Maisie Dobbs is the most unusual Private Investigator I have ever met. Her analytical and unusual methods of solving a case make for the best kind of reading. She is kind, polite and very caring. She brings unusual people together with her warm personality. After reading her first book about Maisie, I was hooked. Her sensitive descriptions of her work as a nurse and the effects of war on returned soldiers and their families are so timely. This is the fourth in the series and just as absorbing. This entire series would be excellent for a book group.
