Publisher's Summary

In the midst of the hop-picking season in the village of Heronsdene, Kent, Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator, undertakes an assignment from James Compton, son of her long-time supporter, Lady Rowan Compton, to look into aspects of a land purchase on his behalf. Quickly drawn into the local community, with its prejudices against the seasonal workers from London and the traveling gypsies who flock to Kent at harvest-time, Maisie soon becomes involved in an effort to discover the source of petty crime in the area, as well as a spate of fires that has blighted Heronsdene for years.

As she is pulled deeper into the investigation, Maisie is increasingly intrigued by the peculiar mood of melancholy and secrecy that shrouds the village, a feeling that is inflamed by the villagers' fear - but just what has caused them to be so afraid? The beloved sleuth must draw on all her training and experience to discover the truth in this gripping, atmospheric installment of the best-selling series.

Maisie Dobbs begins to unfold

The more I listen to this collection, the better I like them. Ms. Cassidy does a good job of portraying a gentleness in Maisie, reflective of the time. Wrapping the history of post WW1 around the plot of deception and death allows the listener to be carried along with Maisie, as if a passenger in her MG or a sipper of the frequent tea that is offered. This is a sensitive Maisie, her war experiences remain close at hand, her love, lost to the battles, her kind father and this story with gypsies paint a picture of struggles at every level of British society ... plus a gentle dog. Just my cup of tea!

Incredible

Would you consider the audio edition of An Incomplete Revenge to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version

What other book might you compare An Incomplete Revenge to and why?

Peter Hamill's, North River

What about Orlagh Cassidy’s performance did you like?

Her sense of timing is great. One quickly loses a feeling that one individual is reading. All the individual personalities come across splendidly.

Any additional comments?

I'm impressed by J. Winspear's ability to weave several different story lines together and then to resolve them in an intriquing way. She is undoubtedly one of my favorite authors.

Loved it

If you have seen any of my other reviews for Maisie Dobbs books you know I adore them. This particular book has a very intriguing mystery and some interesting personal development for Maise herself. An excellent addition to the series! Orlagh Cassidy is wonderful as the various characters.
