In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison, and chicken soup.

Stopping only for a brief but intensely erotic dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls: Bert, Cec, Dot, and Detective Inspector Call Me Jack Robinson. But ultimately it is her stealth and wit that solve the crime - and all for the price of a song.... Download and start listening now!

    " Always stumbled whenever I read the main characters name -- how to pronounce Phryne? The book characters are a bit stiff and revolves around cultures/phrases/mannerisms unfamiliar to me and this is a bit off putting to try to decifer while wanting only to enjoy the story. "

    " One of a series of mysteries that take place in 1920s Australia. The heroine is an attractive, spunky, independent, and compassionate woman. The stories take place in Melbourne and offer a picture of life in Australia during that time period. "

    " Very interesting mystery...the main character is everything a single woman would want to be...rich, pretty, kind and smart. There were some racy parts but generaly the mystery was the focus. "
