Review by @Kirsty Rowan: We Need to Talk About Kevin - Sweet Jesus, make sure you're steeled up for this one. Shriver will mercilessly stick in her claws, rip out your heart and throw in a sizeable dash of nausea for good measure. That said, this is a brilliant novel, raw and powerful and will leave you feeling exhausted. Make sure you have tissues and a stiff drink handy when reading.
Maisie Dobbs' first assignment for the British Secret Service takes her undercover to Cambridge as a professor, and leads to the investigation of a murderous web of activities being conducted by the up-and-coming Nazi party.
