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, 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.

    " I enjoy the setting for this series, the late 1920's in Australia, although we don't get much of the flavor of Australia at all. The heroine, Phryne, is growing on me, but slowly--she still needs to have some weakness to seem more realistic. In this story, she solves two separate mysteries, a child's kidnapping and a murder, but the two never overlapped and Phryne solves everything too easily. I'll probably give the series one more try and see if it matures. "

    " Up until midnight finishing this. Fun, fast-paced. Kerry Greenwood has a way with words, a marvelous turn of phrase evoking sights, smells, and the wind in your hair. I'm not giving the plot away. Go read it yourself. "

    " Great character, 2 different mysteries, involves daredevil pilots of early 20th century. "

    " About a 2.5 star read for me. I really liked the first half, then liked it less and less as it went along after that. I like Phryne as a character and I liked the setup initially. I think the second half suffered from too many plots in too short a book so there were a lot of throwaways and several weird and unpleasant digressions. I did like the first one though and will give the third a try. "
