THE CONSEQUENCES OF FEAR by Jacqueline Winspear, read by Orlagh Cassidy

Narrator Orlagh Cassidy returns to transport listeners back to bomb-shattered London of 1941. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss this long-running series, which has followed Maisie Dobbs from her time as a WWI nurse to her role working with the Special Operations Executive. Jacqueline Winspear’s attention to the details of time, place, and speech, paired with Cassidy’s spot-on performance, make for an engaging and authentic listening experience. In the 16th in the series, Maisie is investigating a murder, and she finds herself in a complex situation involving British and French intelligence agents. She struggles between her duty to serve her country and her dedication to her child. A deeply moving listening experience. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
