"Jacqueline Winspear adds a fascinating episode to the Maisie Dobbs series, which justly gains fans with each new story...Cassidy nicely conveys Maisie’s honest wisdom, sensible approach to her “inquiries,” and spirited manners. The details of village life, a community of Gypsies, and the shifts in attitudes of the late 1920s make a vivid audio mystery."

"Orlagh Cassidy, who also read Messenger of Truth, not only captures a range of London and Kentish accents, but she also individualizes even the most minor characters...This engrossing mystery will be hard to put down, and the listener will be sad when the final, lively strains of a fiddle are heard."
- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review -
"Cassidy, the reader of Pardonable Lies (2006), also featuring sleuth Dobbs, narrates with precision and care...[Her] reading is personal and moving."
