    Maisie Dobbs is back, and this time she has been hired to find a wealthy grocery magnate's daughter who has fled from home. What seems a simple case at first becomes complicated when Maisie learns of the recent violent deaths of three of the heiress's old friends. Is there a connection between her mysterious disappearance and the murders? Who would kill such charming young women? As Maisie investigates, she discovers that the answers to all her questions lie in the unforgettable agony of The Great War.

    Linda P-C says: "Yikes! This is a problem."
    "Love Maisie Dobbs book but hate this narrator!"
    Overall

    As much as I love Ms. Winspear's books, I have to give this one a lower rating because of the narrator. Either the narrator (and producer?) thought this sounded better read at mach 12 speed or something has gotten messed up on the production end. Whatever the reason, I find it impossible to listen to. When Ms. Hicks narrates Billy's part, it feels like fingernails down a chalkboard. Brrrrr! I guess I'll read the print copy instead. The narrator of the first and subsequent books is far superior to Ms. Hicks, in my opinion.
