Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Orlagh Cassidy

Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Orlagh Cassidy returns to transport listeners back to bomb-shattered London of 1941. The author's attention to the details of time, place, and speech and Cassidy's spot-on performance provide an engaging authenticity to this listening experience. In her investigation of a murder witnessed by a boy, Maisie Dobbs finds herself in a complex situation involving British and French intelligence agents. Dobbs struggles between her duty to serve her country and her dedication to her adopted child. Cassidy excels at performing the emotionally fraught dialogue, which shines a light on the external and internal scars of war and their ripple effects on family. Leveraging her talents for accents, pace, and intonation, Cassidy differentiates the many characters young and old. A deeply moving listening experience. E.Q.
