London 1930. Maisie Dobbs, the renowned psychologist and investigator, receives a most unusual request. She must prove that Sir Cecil Lawton's son Ralph is really dead. This is a case that will challenge Maisie in unexpected ways, for Ralph Lawton was an aviator shot down by enemy fire in 1917. To get to the bottom of the mystery, Maisie must travel to the former battlefields of northern France, where she served as a nurse in the Great War and where ghosts of her past still linger. As her investigation moves closer to the truth, Maisie soon uncovers the secrets and lies that some people would prefer remain buried.

Maisie Dobbs investigates the mysterious death of a controversial artist—and World War I veteran—in the fourth entry in the bestselling series London, 1931. The night before an exhibition of his artwork opens at a famed Mayfair gallery, the controversial artist Nick Bassington-Hope falls to his death. The police rule it an accident, but Nick's twin sister, Georgina, a wartime journalist and a infamous figure in her own right, isn't convinced. When the authorities refuse to consider her theory that Nick was murdered, Georgina seeks out a fellow graduate from Girton College, Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, for help. Nick was a veteran of World War I, and before long the case leads Maisie to the desolate beaches of Dungeness in Kent, and into the sinister underbelly of the city's art world. In Messenger of Truth, Maisie once again uncovers the perilous legacy of the Great War in a society struggling to recollect itself. But to solve the mystery of Nick's death, Maisie will have to keep her head as the forces behind the artist's fall come out of the shadows to silence her. Following on the bestselling Pardonable Lies, Jacqueline Winspear delivers another vivid, thrilling, and utterly unique episode in the life of Maisie Dobbs.

In her fifth outing, Maisie Dobbs, the extraordinary Psychologist and Investigator, delves into a strange series of crimes in a small rural community With the country in the grip of economic malaise, and worried about her business, Maisie Dobbs is relieved to accept an apparently straightforward assignment from an old friend to investigate certain matters concerning a potential land purchase. Her inquiries take her to a picturesque village in Kent during the hop-picking season, but beneath its pastoral surface she finds evidence that something is amiss. Mysterious fires erupt in the village with alarming regularity, and a series of petty crimes suggests a darker criminal element at work. As Maisie discovers, the villagers are bitterly prejudiced against outsiders who flock to Kent at harvest time—even more troubling, they seem possessed by the legacy of a wartime Zeppelin raid. Maisie grows increasingly suspicious of a peculiar secrecy that shrouds the village, and ultimately she must draw on all her finely honed skills of detection to solve one of her most intriguing cases. Rich with Jacqueline Winspear's trademark period detail, this installment of the bestselling series, An Incomplete Revenge, is gripping, atmospheric, and utterly enthralling.

Where the boundary lies between falsehood and fiction, between an actual untruth and an admitted invention, has set off many debates in intellectual circles. In classical studies, this issue has gained prominence through the upsurge of interest in the ancient novel and through recent work on the rhetorical character of ancient historiography.This pathfinding collection of essays charts the borderland between falsehood and fiction in the ancient world, especially by considering how far "lying" was distinguished from "fiction" at different periods and in different genres. The areas covered are early Greek poetry (E. L. Bowie), Plato (Christopher Gill), Greek and Roman historiography (J. L. Moles and T. P. Wiseman), and the Greek and Roman novel (J. R. Morgan and Andrew Laird). Michael Wood and D. C. Feeney discuss the literary critical questions involved and draw connections with contemporary debate. All Greek and Latin passages are translated into English, and the collection is designed to be accessible to students of literature and history generally, as well as to Classicists.

‘Politics is a noble, but also a dirty, business. To gain election — and retain office — in a democratic system, politicians are frequently compelled to be dishonest. They engage in benevolent lying because obstruction by stupid voters will otherwise stop them advancing the national interest as they see it.’So claims the author of this eye-opening book, which straddles politics, philosophy, morality and economics. Alex Rubner’s own background as an economist advising policy-makers gives authority to his words and a personal dimension to his illustrations.

Following a childhood of parental abuse, and subsequent homelessness, Nancy Davenport went on to graduate from UCLA Phi Beta Kappa, later receiving her Master's Degree in Social Work. An accomplished poet and artist, she dedicated her life to counseling children and families affected by child abuse. While writing this memoir, Nancy was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. Suddenly faced with devastating illness, she became determined to complete this work in order to spread her message that child abuse is as likely to be found in a mansion as in a mobile home. Eternal Improv is an inspiring work of profound courage and hope. "What an accomplishment! Nancy Davenport's searing, raw, witty account of a deeply disturbing childhood and brave escape from an abusive father is marked by the wisdom of reflection and the grace of forgiveness. Rising above homelessness and starvation to achieve academic and professional success against tremendous odds, Nancy has written her memoir while struggling daily to live with the invasive consequences of Lou Gehrig's disease. Completing this book demonstrates a strength beyond words, for as she has lost her ability to speak, so her voice booms from the page."-Jacqueline Winspear, author of Maisie Dobbs, Birds Of A Feather, and Pardonable Lies "Nancy Davenport's recollections reveal a writer with a clear eye, a dry wit, and a crusty, resilient spirit. Reading them makes the heart ache."-Linda Hunt, Academy Award-winning actress "Nancy Davenport writes about her childhood abuse, homelessness and debilitating disease without ever dipping into self-pity, victimhood or easy platitudes. Her memoir crackles with wit, irony and wisdom. It's a story of something all too rare in today's world: courage."-Barbara Abercrombie, Instructor in the UCLA Extension Writers' Program and author of Writing Out the Storm
