Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Orlagh Cassidy’s brilliant, fully-voiced reading is as perfect here as she has been for all the other Maisie Dobbs mysteries in the series. Her children’s, East Indian accents plus the economic class differences in accents are all well-done. She is of course now Maisie Dobbs. And her reading of Winspear’s descriptions so evocative of the period (London, 1933) are perfect.” SoundCommentary.com (starred review)
“[Narrator] Orlagh Cassidy immerses listeners in Maisie’s personal situation, making her confusion palpable. She presents Maisie on more solid ground in her investigation of the murders of two Indian women. Cassidy draws believable characters—from Mr. Pramal, the brother of one of the dead women, to Maisie’s office assistants and the street urchins she questions. With major life changes on the horizon, listeners will eagerly await Maisie’s next adventure.” AudioFile
“Winspear adroitly weaves a mystery involving tensions with race, class, and even love.” Library Journal
