Another one bites the dust

I picked up Maisie Dobbs almost entirely due to the cover art (take a look it's quite good). The buzz didn't hurt either. Neither did the fact that I got it at Goodwill for $1.67. Anyway, the Grumpy Old Bookman has a rather scathing review of it, saying it would seem dowdy back in the days of Agatha Christie. I suppose if you are looking for something unlike today's violent and dark books, it may suit, but I am going to pass on it now.
