    To the costermongers of Covent Garden Eddie Pettit was a gentle soul with a gift for working with horses. When Eddie is killed in a violent accident, the grieving costers are skeptical about the cause of his death. Who would want to kill Eddie - and why? Maisie Dobbs' father, Frankie, had been a costermonger, so she had known the men since childhood. She remembers Eddie fondly and is determined to offer her help. But it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are equally determined to prevent her from learning the truth behind Eddie's death.

    What did you like best about Elegy for Eddie? What did you like least?

    I loved the story and it's always great to learn more about Maisie's history.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maisie is always my favorite character, but Eddie's mom and her BFF were great in this story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Orlagh Cassidy?

    Any of the fine British narrators--Lisette Lecat, Kate Reading, the narrator who does the Laurie King series. Just about anyone, really.


    Was Elegy for Eddie worth the listening time?

    Maisie is always worth the listen, but it was almost ruined for me by Orlagh Cassidy's narration. The characters' voices and accents were inconsistent, the narrative portions were smarmy with the emphasis in the wrong place, and she seemed not to care at all about the story or the characters. One of the worst jobs I've ever heard in listening to hundreds of audiobooks.
