This Week's Spotlight is on Maisie Dobbs' latest mystery

A Dangerous Place by Jacquelin Winspear is the 11th book in her series about Maisie Dobbs, a nurse-turned-private investigator-turned grieving widow.  It's been four years since Leaving Everything Most Loved, the 10th book, led up to her marriage and pregnancy—now, she's a childless, grieving widow trying to get up her nerve to return to Britain where she would face an onslaught of painful memories.  She gets off the ship that would have taken her there to spend a little more time abroad—this time in Gibraltor.  She literally trips over a dead body which the police identify as the brother of her landlady.  But was it?  Maisie doesn't think so.  It's 1937 and the Spanish Civil War is heating up.  She's entangled in inspectors of all kinds trailing her and trying to find out “what she knows.”  Historically accurate, emotionally intense and just enough complicated to keep you guessing—A Dangerous Place—it's on the New York Times Bestseller list so it's now 20% off at Otto's, a booklover's paradise in the heart of downtown Williamsport.
