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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 2/10/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 2/7/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 2/1/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn | 1/13/2014

    " Still loving the Phryne Fisher books. Set in the 1920's they are a wonderful, light hearted mixture of mystery, comedy and intrigue. She is a daring, unconventional, thoroughly enjoyable character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stven | 1/12/2014

    " The recurring characters of the charming Phryne Fisher books are now old friends and Miss Fisher's nerve no less delightful to behold for being familiar. I've read a dozen and will eventually complete the set. Flying Too High was the second book in the series, but it hasn't hurt me to read them out of order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neeuqdrazil | 1/4/2014

    " These are entirely too much fun. I do wish they were longer, though - they're almost novella-length. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasula | 1/4/2014

    " Flapper era woman in Australia becomes private investigator- this is 3rd or 4th in series. Very light, pleasant, good hearted characters. Enjoyable, I would read others in series when in the mood for a fun, quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swanbender2001 | 12/25/2013

    " Phyrne is one of my favorite characters and I always enjoy reading about her escapades and the various characters she surrounds herself with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 11/19/2013

    " This book was just as good as the first in the series. I'm so glad I found these books, lots of enjoyable reading ahead of me with some 15 books to go! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 11/18/2013

    " These are smart, fun confections. The inimitable Phrynne shows off one of her many talents piloting an airplane and even climbing out on the wing as a stunt. Her sharp mind comes in handy when she and her friends work to try to trap a kidnapper before it's too late. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 6/23/2013

    " I keep reading these. I kind of like the flapper detective who is wealthy and very independent and adventuresome. They are short! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patty | 5/25/2013

    " Enjoyable fluff but I am losing interest in the series. The setting is fun, and the characters eccentric and amusing, but they're not enough to keep me coming back again and again. This might make a fun mini-series though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leah | 3/26/2013

    " I did not find it fun or entertaining. It was very blah to me. "

    " I like this series of books but not this one as much as the later ones. I'm not reading them in order; but if you are the books do get better! "

    " A Murder and a kidnapping are on Phryne Fisher's plate in this book. And with her own style, money and friends, she leads the reader on a fun ride. I am loving this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 3/22/2009

    " Flapper/detective who solves mysteries in 1920s Melbourne. Phryne (I guess it rhymes with briny) is bold, independent, beautiful - and a lover of justice and many, many men. Of course it is not realistic, but it is really fun stuff. I am so glad I stumbled across this series. This is Book #2. "
