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.

I disagree with the bad reviews given to this narrator, Kim Hicks. I enjoyed her just as much as Rita Barrington (the narrator of Maisie Dobbs, the first book in the series.) She did a marvelous job with the various accents, and I didn't feel that it was too fast or grating. I guess it just shows that you should definitely preview the narration before buying! I'm off to get the third in the series, and try Orlaugh Cassidy.
