Dowsing as Deux ex machina,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: An Incomplete Revenge: A Maisie Dobbs Novel (Maisie Dobbs Mysteries) (Hardcover)Would you read a mystery where the detective solves the case by dowsing for lost objects (and on the basis of only one lesson)? It's the sort of thing that makes me not buy the book or swear off the author.
However, it is otherwise a good book and Winspear's preceeding books, while having a touch of the irrational mental schtik, are quite good. But I'll browse the next one thoroughly before I buy.
