Another runaway adventure with glamorous heroine Phryne Fisher!

The devastating Phryne Fisher is under fire again in her seventeenth mystery. Melbourne, 1929. The year starts off for glamorous private investigator Phryne Fisher with a rather trying heat wave and more mysteries than you could prod a parasol at. Simultaneously investigating the apparent suicide death of a man on St Kilda beach and trying to find a lost, illegimate child who could be heir to a wealthy old woman's fortune, Phryne needs all her wits about her, particularly when she has to tangle with a group of thoroughly unpleasant Bright Young Things. But Phryne Fisher is a force of nature, and takes in her elegant stride what might make others quail, including terrifying séances, ghosts, Kif smokers, the threat of human sacrifices, dubious spirit guides and maps to buried pirate treasure ...

The second in the classic Phryne Fisher series from Kerry Greenwood, featuring the irresistible heroine Phryne. Whether she's foiling kidnappers, seducing beautiful young men, or simply deciding what to wear for dinner, Phryne handles everything with her inimitable panache and flair. Danger, excitement, and love-this is how the glamorous Phryne Fisher is determined to live her life in her second enticing adventure. Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight ought to be enough excitement for most people, but not Phryne Fisher, amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades. In this, the second Phryne Fisher mystery, the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher, handling a murder, a kidnapping and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease-and all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she's flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child from kidnapping, she handles everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.

Phryne is back in a thrilling mystery that takes her into dark convents and dank cellars in a frantic search for missing girls. The decidedly raven-haired Miss Phryne Fisher returns to delve deep into the dark cellars of Melbourne. 1929: pretty little golden-haired girls are going missing in Melbourne. But they're not just pretty. Three of them are pregnant, poor girls from the harsh confines of the Magdalen Laundry. People are getting nervous. Polly Kettle, a pushy, self-important Girl Reporter with ambition and no sense of self preservation, decides to investigate--and promptly goes missing herself. It's time for Phryne and Dot to put a stop to this and find Polly Kettle before something quite irreparable happens to all of them. It's a tale of convents and plots, piracy, murder and mystery . . . and Phryne finally finds out if it's true that blondes have more fun. 'Elegant, fabulously wealthy and sharp as a tack, Phryne sleuths her way through these classical detective stories with customary panache.' - The Age

'With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre.' - The Australian. This fabulous compendium of the fourth, fifth and sixth books in the critically acclaimed and much-loved Phryne Fisher mystery series, sees the divine and delectable Hon Phryne Fisher now comfortably ensconced in Melbourne society - but among the parties, the dancing, the flirtations and the assignations, somehow murder always finds a way in... In Blood and Circuses, there have been strange things happening at Farrell's Circus and Wild Beast Show - someone seems to want it to fail, and is prepared to resort to poison, assault and murder. Phryne goes undercover as a trick horse-rider, but she'll need all her tricks, intelligence and courage to see her through this mystery. Death at Victoria Dock sees Phryne tangling with bank robbers and anarchists on her way through tatoo parlours, pubs and spiritualist halls to find out who murdered a very young man who died in Phryne's arms. But when her beloved maid, Dot, is kidnapped, there's nothing that will stand in Phryne's way. In The Green Mill Murder, Phryne finds there are hidden perils in dancing the night away - like murder, blackmail and young men who vanish. But there are compensations to this case, including a dashingly handsome band leader, some fancy flying across the Australian Alps and a most unexpected tryst with a gentle stranger. 'Phryne . . . is a wonderful fantasy of how you could live your life if you had beauty, money, brains and superb self control.' - The Age.

To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand. An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance to enter a world in which he is truly lost. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls, disdainful air and the lavender eyes of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They've certainly taken the heart of Phryne's old friend from the trenches of WWI, John Wilson. Phryne recognizes Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm. Even with the faithful Dot, Mr. and Mrs. Butler, and all in her household ready to pull their weight, Phryne's task is complex. While Mendelssohn's Elijah, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne's past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders. Praise for Kerry Greenwood: 'From beginning to end, Greenwood infuses her series with evocative settings, multidimensional characters and satisfying mysteries.' Booklist 'Phryne Fisher is gutsy and adventurous, and also well endowed with plenty of grey matter. She has it over Robicheaux and Poirot because she's drop-dead gorgeous.' West Australian 'Greenwood's strength lies in her ability to create characters that are wholly satisfying: the bad guys are bad, and the good guys are great' Vogue

'Phryne Fisher is young, wealthy, beautiful, smart, confident and independently minded . and she has a knack for solving murders when she is not sipping a strengthening cocktail or planning another seduction.' - The Australian's Review of Books
