The devastating Phryne Fisher is under fire again in her fourth mystery.

A very young man with muddied hair, a pierced ear and a blue tattoo lies cradled in Phryne's arms. But sadly, it's not another scene of glorious seduction - this time it's death. The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, beautifully dressed in loose trousers, a cream silk shirt and a red-fox fur has just had her windscreen shot out inches in front of her divine nose. But worse is the fate of the pale young man lying on the road, his body hit by bullets, who draws his final blood-filled breath with Phryne at his side. Outraged by this brutal slaughter, Phryne promises to find out who is responsible. But Phryne doesn't yet know how deeply into the mire she'll have to go: bank robbery, tattoo parlours, pubs, spiritualist halls, and the Anarchists. Along this path, Phryne meets Peter, a battle-scarred, sexy Slav, who offers much more to her than just information. But all thoughts of these delights flee from Phryne's mind when her beloved maid, Dot, disappears. There's nothing Phryne won't do to get her back safely.

    " Phryne Fisher is driving down by the docks, when the windshield of her car is shot out. She then finds a dying boy and gets mixed up with Latvian anarchists and their revolutionary plans. I really like Phryne and friends and this is no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kenpen | 2/15/2014

    " I really enjoy Phyrne Fisher mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 2/9/2014

    " Phryne stumbles into a gunfight on the way home one night. A young man is murdered and dies in her arms. She is attacked but escapes and vows to find the murderers and bring them to justice. She does so quite well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 2/7/2014

    " I love Phyrne. I love her precisely because she is not the most realistic character in the world. She knows who she is and makes no apologies. She strong-willed, sensual, and intelligent yet also very compassionate. She always sets everything right in the end and this is why I chose this as an audiobooks to listen to while knitting and waiting for my son to have his tonsils out. It was wonderful to be able to cheer on Phyrne while worrying about my little Rabbit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorena | 1/30/2014

    " Phryne Fisher is always a fine character to spend time with, but this book was a little less fun than the others in the series so far. Phryne lets the "Death at Victoria Dock" get to her more than the previous mysteries she has solved, for reasons that don't seem entirely adequately explained. I feel like there was something I missed between the end of the last novel and the beginning of this one, somehow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 1/24/2014

    " Very easy reading, but it's fun to follow the regular characters through their latest adventure. As an expat Aussie, I'm also enjoying colloquial expressions that I haven't heard for many years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lemonitsa | 1/20/2014

    " I enjoyed this book very much. This week has been hectic, between work, home, and helping people prepare for travel, I needed a good story to calm and relax me. Phryne continues to build my interest and I am getting ready to dive into book #5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 1/2/2014

    " Another great Phryne Fisher adventure. This heroine does get around. This is another fast-paced book which is set in 1928, Melbourne, Australia. This one centers around anarchists, dock strikes, and murder. Plucky Dot even play a more major role in this tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audra (Unabridged Chick) | 12/14/2013

    " Fun, although not as good as the first three. I found the mystery less compelling than in the other books. But in terms of characters, Greenwood makes everyone just delightful, even those that show up for a few minutes. I want so badly to live like Phryne Fisher! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hope | 12/12/2013

    " I didn't actually finish this - it didn't appeal to me enough for me to spend the time to do so. I might like the series if I start at the beginning, but I doubt I will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Loomes | 12/5/2013

    " Another really enjoyable Miss Fisher Mystry "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta | 12/1/2013

    " Maybe a tad over the top but nevertheless fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yorky Caz | 11/28/2013

    " Another excellent book, great main character and I like the support network of servants and local police all getting in on Phyhnes cases - highly recommend but read in order "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev | 6/21/2013

    " These books are like candy; they provide pleasure and fascination and then they melt away. Always a treat and always a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/29/2013

    " I always enjoy Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher mysteries. However, this one was not one of my favorites of the series. Too much about Russian/Latvian revolutionaries and anarchists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 12/28/2012

    " Love Peter the Painter. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasula | 11/30/2012

    " The usual light hearted murder mystery with Phryne Fisher in 1928 Australia, this time with anarchists and a lost girl (2 separate mysteries). Always fun and a good escape. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndee | 9/15/2012

    " Not sure I want to continue this series. I have no vested interest in the actions of the heroine... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Cooperrider | 4/15/2012

    " Not my favorite of the series, but a weak Phryne Fisher is still well worth visiting. If I could choose a fictional character to be, Phryne might be it - rich, beautiful, smart, tough, and prone to swanning around in gorgeous '20s clothes and drinking delicious cocktails. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MJ | 2/28/2012

    " Just as yummy and quick as the others. This is #4 I think and it seems the author is no longer associated with a registered wizard. (divorce???) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 12/11/2011

    " Plot was a little confusing at times (but bear in mind, I have spread this book out over about four months due to distractions) but I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their interactions and decisions throughout the book. A pretty good Miss Fisher novel! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 10/8/2011

    " As always Phyrne does not disappoint! Between trying to find a missing girl, tangling with revolutionaries and dealing with her latest 'beau', Phryne handles everything with great aplomb. Can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aliya | 9/15/2011

    " Not my favourite Phryne Fisher, but still good. "

    " Wherein Phryne tangles with anarchists and tracks down a missing schoolgirl. Also, Dot acquires a boy friend. Lovely series: not as antic a P.G. Wodehouse, but in the same vein. "

    " My, these are fun! (A little bloody, but fun...) "
