'Winspear pulls it off brilliantly' DAILY MAIL
October 1942. Jo Hardy, an Air Transport Auxiliary ferry pilot, is delivering a Spitfire to Biggin Hill Aerodrome, when she has the terrifying experience of coming under fire from the ground. Returning to the area on foot to find out who was trying to take her down, she discovers an African American soldier bound and gagged in an old barn. When another ferry pilot crashes and dies in the same part of Kent, Jo is convinced there's a connection between all three events and she wants desperately to help the soldier now in the custody of American military police.
Jo takes her suspicions to Maisie Dobbs and as the psychologist-investigator delves into the case, she discovers that the targeting of ferry pilots and the plight of the soldier are bound up with the visit to Britain by the First Lady of the United States, Eleanor Roosevelt. Maisie must work fast to uncover the link, to save the president's wife and a soldier caught in the crosshairs of those who would see them both dead.
