A deathbed plea from his wife leads Sir Cecil Lawton to seek the aid of Maisie Dobbs, psychologist and investigator. As Maisie soon learns, Agnes Lawton never accepted that her aviator son was killed in the Great War, a torment that led her not only to the edge of madness but to the doors of those who practice the dark arts and commune with the spirit world. In accepting the assignment, Maisie finds her spiritual strength tested, as well as her regard for her mentor, Maurice Blanche. The mission also brings her together once again with her college friend Priscilla Evernden, who served in France and who lost three brothers to the war, one of whom, it turns out, had an intriguing connection to the missing Ralph Lawton.

Problem with part 1
I believe there is file a problem with Part 1 of Pardonable Lies by Jacqueline Winspear. I burned this book to CDs and put it on iPod; same issue exists with both devices. I also re-downloaded the file - no change. At about the 293 minute point, the book integrity is lost - it starts repeating - the chapters make no sense based on previous content, previous sections are repeated until 264 minutes from the end of part 1, when it gets back on track.
The story is great; the electronic filefor Part 1 is the problem which Audible needs to fix.

Maisie Does It Again
I am a Maisie Dobbs fan. I've read her two previous books but I decided to listen to her third--Pardonable Lies. The narration by the author was well done and this made the book very enjoyable to listen to. I also enjoyed the interview with the author at the end of the book.
