Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 2/20/2014

    " It's great to read a mystery where there is an interesting woman lead character who is not a housewife. I really like the idea that there are different ways of thinking about how life can be lived. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Necia | 2/17/2014

    " another fun Phryne book. I'm sad that this is the last book in the series...at least, so far "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry Hilts | 1/22/2014

    " Another light, very enjoyable Phryne Fisher mystery. A wonderful distraction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Smatzny | 1/21/2014

    " Very good. Typical Phryne Fisher. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/17/2014

    " Phyrne Fisher is not sure if she wants to attend a Christmas-to-New Year's party thrown by the beautiful, decadent Templar twins, whom she knew in Paris, but when she's sent a coral snake to discourage her going, her presence is assured. The beautiful women and men who throng around Gerald and Isabella don't make up for the knowledge that there's a hired assassin on the premises. Phyrne is not sure who he is, or who the target is, but she is disturbed when she learns that two children, part of the Templar entourage, are missing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liza | 1/15/2014

    " Enjoyable, certainly, but not my favorite Phryne Fisher novel. The ending was a cop-out, in my opinion. I would have preferred it end more realistically. It would have been bittersweet, but much more memorable. However, MitD had the best opening chapters of any Phryne Fisher book to date. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/4/2014

    " Another delightful Phryne Fisher Mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaret | 12/31/2013

    " This was a good installment in the Phryne Fisher series. My main complaint was that it just had too much going on. Sometimes it was hard to follow which criminal Phryne was chasing after. Overall, I thought it was true to the character developed over the series and I will continue. "

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

    " No spoilers here, but this one disappointed me. Miss Phryne is as fabulous as always, but the biggest villain was not credible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara | 11/14/2013

    " Another very saucy tale of mystery and mahem from the desk of Kerry Greenwood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eli | 11/8/2013

    " It probably would have been nice to live like Phryne Fisher. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/1/2013

    " not up to the usual standards "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenne | 2/1/2013

    " I liked the decadent midsummer New Year's house party weekend, but I missed having the regular characters around, a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/14/2012

    " One of the best so far of the Phryne Fisher mysteries. She sticks with her own class mostly, so less condescension and more fun with the idle rich. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbie | 10/8/2012

    " The Phryne Fisher series is interesting and different. I find them to be entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenda | 8/11/2012

    " This book is set in Australia, December 1928. The setting and outrageous characters are the most memorable parts of this book, but the plot also unfolds at a reasonable pace and held my interest to the very end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stven | 6/24/2012

    " Quite readable and dotted with some good moments, but the cast of characters here is vast and not quite persuasively brought to fictional life. I prefer solutions arrived at by some logical chain of events. I like Phryne Fisher better as a detective than as a chaser. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kris | 6/3/2012

    " Audio - not my favorite Phryne Fisher mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 5/18/2012

    " this plot is a little out there/outlandish but the 3 day party sounds like a lot of fun. Phryne, the main character is as smart,adventurous and shrewd as ever. Fun and funny. lovely cast of characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannan | 3/11/2012

    " Another delightful Phryne Fisher mystery. This one was fanciful and a little bit sexy....1920's sexy that is. I liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/27/2012

    " I always find Kerry Greenwood's books to be very interesting. I love learning about times and practices about which I know very little (or nothing). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 2/18/2012

    " I think this was the best Phryne Fisher mystery I've read. I would be happy to read it again. There is so much in Greenwood's writing to enjoy, and one pass isn't enough to pick it all up. Such a great series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/17/2012

    " Not the best of the bunch, but still a quick, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/1/2011

    " I didn't like this one as well as the earlier PF myseries I have read. The charater is good, but this mystery was kind of dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 3/25/2011

    " this plot is a little out there/outlandish but the 3 day party sounds like a lot of fun. Phryne, the main character is as smart,adventurous and shrewd as ever. Fun and funny. lovely cast of characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasula | 3/23/2011

    " Another lighthearted mystery romp with quirky characters,set in 1928 Melbourne, Australia, where our heroine is asked to prevent the murder of an acquaintance who with his sister have a "cult?" following. Greenwood's Phryne Fisher mysteries are 100% enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/14/2011

    " Fizzy and fast-paced, mix of sophistication, even utter immorality, and total good intentions, charmingly if unrealistically fulfilled. A smashing read for pure adulterated escapism.
    The title is a complete dud - it should have been "The Last Best Party". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sallie | 8/11/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 2/16/2010

    " Another great Australian mystery with 1920s era sleuth Phryne Fisher. She is a character who grows on you and you like her the more you read about her. This would make a great Masterpiece Theatre or Mystery series on PBS. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liza | 2/4/2010

    " Fun fluff mystery -- the writing style is repetitive and formulaic, but the characters and attention to period detail are lovely. "
