The Consequences of Fear: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear

 

 

As Europe buckles under Nazi occupation, Maisie Dobbs investigates a possible murder that threatens devastating repercussions for Britain's war efforts in this latest installment in the New York Times bestselling mystery series.

October 1941. While on a delivery, young Freddie Hackett, a message runner for a government office, witnesses an argument that ends in murder. Crouching in the doorway of a bombed-out house, Freddie waits until the coast is clear. But when he arrives at the delivery address, he’s shocked to come face to face with the killer.

Dismissed by the police when he attempts to report the crime, Freddie goes in search of a woman he once met when delivering a message: Maisie Dobbs. While Maisie believes the boy and wants to help, she must maintain extreme caution: she’s working secretly for the Special Operations Executive, assessing candidates for crucial work with the French resistance. Her two worlds collide when she spots the killer in a place she least expects. She soon realizes she’s been pulled into the orbit of a man who has his own reasons to kill—reasons that go back to the last war.

As Maisie becomes entangled in a power struggle between Britain’s intelligence efforts in France and the work of Free French agents operating across Europe, she must also contend with the lingering question of Freddie Hackett’s state of mind. What she uncovers could hold disastrous consequences for all involved in this compelling chapter of the “series that seems to get better with every entry” (Wall Street Journal).

Consequences by Peter C Bradbury

 

 

Bullying is a huge problem that plenty is said about, but little is done. James would prefer to be apologized to, but if his bullies, or those who did him wrong as he grew up refuse to do so, then they will face the "CONSEQUENCES" of their actions. At first, James isn't worried about himself, he's reached the end of his tether and he's all alone. Yet after meeting up with another victim who attended the same school, his tactics change, and he wants to help others who are also bullied and belittled.Although "CONSEQUENCES" is a novel, I hope it will bring more awareness to the huge problem of bullying, and that people will think about how they treat and act toward others.James is able to deal with his tormentors eventually, but he has the tools to do so. Many millions of other don't.
