Summary
Early April, 1933. To the costermongers of Covent Garden--peddlers selling 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 coaster are deeply skeptical about the cause of his death. Maisie Dobbs' father, Frankie, had been a costermonger, so she had known the men since childhood. But it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are equally determined to prevent her from learning the truth behind Eddie's death. Plunging into the investigation, Maisie begins her search for answers on the working-class streets of Lambeth, where Eddie had lived and where she had grown up. The inquiry quickly leads her to a callous press baron; a has-been politician named Winston Churchill, lingering in the hinterlands of power; and most suprisingly, to Douglas Patridge the husband of her dearest friend, Pricilla. ..
