Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline WInspear (Book Review)

Winspear, Jacqueline. Messenger of Truth. New York: Henry Holt, 2006.

Maisie sets out to investigate the death of an artist (Nick Bassington-Hope) when his twin has a feeling that there may have been more to the event than the accidental death ruled by the police investigation. Her assistant Billy's daughter is fighting an illness. Maisie recognizes the need to get out of her relationship with Andrew Dene. The investigation leads them to Nick's converted railroad car properties in Dungeness as well as to the London nightlife and art world. This installment resonated more with me than previous installments in the series. I found myself wishing that I could actually see an exhibit of the fictitious artist's work! (4 of 5 stars)
