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.

Yikes! This is a problem.

I listened to the first book in the series and liked it so much I purchased the second before I was quite finished. I didn't notice that the narrator was different. Within five minutes of beginning the second book I would have asked to return it, if I thought it were possible! This woman speed reads her way through the book, making Maisie sound like a zombie and Billy sound like a total idiot. I have no idea what the narrator of the 3rd and 4th installments is like, but I WILL listen to a preview first. I wish I had taken the time to read this one in print, and I may do that yet, as the awful narration spoiled my enjoyment of the story.

I recommend the story - but not the narration.

This is the first time I've listened to a book in this series. I enjoyed the story very much, but I have to say that the narrator is the MOST irritating I've ever heard. The main character's voice is fine, at least until the final scene, but several of the others speak with a horrible whining screech. In the early chapters, it is only the women who speak so annoyingly, but as the book progresses, the men too start speaking this way. EEEeergh!
