The fabulous Phryne - she of the Lulu bob, Cupid's Bow lips and a pearl-handled pistol in her garter - is back! The 1920s most elegant and irrepressible sleuth returns for her 17th adventure.

Melbourne, Australia, 1929. The year starts off for glamorous private investigator Phryne Fisher with a rather trying heat wave and more mysteries than you could prod a parasol at. Simultaneously investigating the apparent suicide death of a man on St Kilda beach and trying to find a lost, illegimate child who could be heir to a wealthy old woman's fortune, Phryne needs all her wits about her, particularly when she has to tangle with a group of thoroughly unpleasant Bright Young Things.

But Phryne Fisher is a force of nature, and takes in her elegant stride what might make others quail, including terrifying seances, ghosts, Kif smokers, the threat of human sacrifices, dubious spirit guides and maps to buried pirate treasure... Download and start listening now!

    " Phryne Fisher is my absolute favorite character in literature today. I adore her; I want to be her in my next life. She has it all and flaunts it because she knows how temporal and fleeting life is. This was another winner of a book. It is New Year's in Melbourne and hot, very hot. It's like July in Dallas, Texas with a hot wind blowing all the time to make you mad. Phryne has to solve the murder of young man who runs an antique store and find a missing heir. All the favorite characters are there: Jack Robinson, Bert and Cec, Mr. and Mrs. Butler, Dot, along with Ruth and Jane and, of course, Lei Chung. "

    " Interesting mixture of upper class English and Australian slang but it took me too long to accept the manners of Miss Fisher, so I think I'll leave this series alone. "
