Listening doesn't get much better than the newest Maisie Dobbs mystery performed by the series's longtime narrator, Orlagh Cassidy. She brings pristine pacing and a deep understanding of the regular characters combined with an ever-fresh perspective on new characters and the action. The book begins in London at the start of WWII, amid sandbagged buildings and the departure of the city's children to the safety of the countryside. Maisie agrees to investigate the murder of a WWI Belgian refugee who had settled in England. All is not as it seems, and complications ensue, including those of the heart as Maisie helps a lost young evacuee. This is an excellent series and a listening experience that is pure pleasure.
