Unforgettable characters and a fascinating 1920s setting.

It's the end of the roaring twenties, and the exuberant and Honourable Phryne Fisher is dancing and gaming with gay abandon. But she becomes bored with London and the endless round of parties. In search of excitement, she sets her sights on a spot of detective work in Melbourne, Australia. And so mystery and the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de Lisse, appear in her life. From then on it's all cocaine and communism until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

    " Not a bad first book in a series, though a bit pat in its delivery. The main character is a little too devil-may-care to seem real. Still a fun read, and I will be looking for the others. "

    " Phryne Fisher is one heck of a heroine - tall, beautiful, intelligent and a strong, independent woman in 1920's Melbourne. The adventures she gets into are fabulous. You can't help but love her and fortunately this is the first book of a whole series. I hear she just gets better and better. "

    " Wild and crazy Phryne Fisher is not afraid of anything or anybody! And in 1920's Australia, if you're of the criminal bent, you best not get in her line of fire. Cocaine Blues is the first in a series of Phryne's adventures and in this book, we meet all her compatriots--Cece and Bert, the cab driving communists, Dot, her newly adopted ladies maid, Dr. Maxwell, a handy female doctor who can analyze any chemical component! Maybe it will be a fun ride to read more! "

    " Fell in love with the show then decided to check out the books to see how they are and wow was I so taken back at the differences. Phryne Fisher is a bored aristocrat from England who goes to Melbourne not sure what to do with her life but is told to spy on a friend's daughter for fear she may be poisoned. There, Phryne meets a maid Dot who was recently dismissed because she was assaulted and hires her to be her personal secretary where Dot is naive but very traditional to where she needs someone like Phryne in her life. There is another story going on where girls are being murdered after seeing an abortionist and while the show that case along and with the poisoned aristocrat are connected they are separate cases being told where the only thing in common is Phryne gets stumbled into it after having an affair with the sexy Sasha. This book is the first one in the series and while I like the show a bit better, these books are interesting to check out. Phryne is smart, great to hang out with and gives a lot of insight into what she sees while still having fun in her cases. "
