What's the connection between the disappearance of a grocery chain heiress and the murders of three women? It is 10 years after the Great War, and the 1920s' era detail forms a perfect backdrop for this Maisie Dobbs mystery. Kim Hicks has a voice to listen to all day without tiring of the sound. Her rich, lush, mellifluous narration is a terrific fit for P.I. Maisie's newest adventure. Jacqueline Winspear, winner of the 2003 Agatha Award for Best First Mystery Novel, provides a cheery, intelligent heroine, as well as an assortment of believable types, while Hicks delivers clear, deft characterizations, excellent accents, and a strong sense of place.
