Miss Phryne Fisher is a glamorous “flapper” who solves mysteries with the help of her minions. Detective Inspector Jack Robinson respects and admires her but also at times finds her “leaping into the fray” rather exasperating. This mystery delves into the seedier areas of Melbourne, Australia. Pregnant girls are sent the Magdalene Laundry, where they are going missing, and a rather pushy young female reporter who views this as her scoop is also missing. Very pretty young blond girls are being abducted as well. A fun read! (submitted by WC)
I love this series. Light and fluffy but with a tough core. Great characters, but you have to suspend reality a bit. However, the crimes are always real and reflective of that time. Helps if you've been to Melbourne and area.
Very good read.
(Book 19 in the Phryne Fisher series)
LOVE Greenwood's writing. Want to get in a time machine and go back. LOVE the words, premise--ENTERTAINING!
This series is so fun and I find these stories to be educational as well. I know little of Australia and even less of Oz in the 20's. It's really fun to read about Phryne's clothes and habits and her lovers. LOVE this series
Really enjoyable book. Love Kerry Greenwood.
One of her best.
Good! Another interesting Phryne adventure. Always fun!
I love the Phryne Fisher mysteries, set in Melbourne Australiia in the 1920s. Kerry Greenwood's latest is, I think, her best yet. Greenwood manages to weave some interesting political philosophies with the adventures of an intrepid and independent female (Phryne) and create intriguing stories. Well done, Kerry!
