Listeners can continue to follow Maisie Dobbs—investigator and psychologist—as her life and adventures evolve just before WWII. It’s a knack to keep a long-running series fresh, and narrator Orlagh Cassidy definitely plays a significant role with her portraits of Maisie and her familiar friends and colleagues—Inspector Robbie MacFarlane’s Scottish burr is just as thick as ever, posh friend Priscilla’s mothering just as bossy. The passage of time through the series always makes the historical context interesting. New circumstances challenge Maisie as she’s sent to Munich during Hitler’s early rise to power. A good deal of backstory is supplied to help listeners enter the series. Cassidy’s warm narration, with its clear emotional connection to the characters and events, makes this another winner. R.F.W.
