Phryne Fisher, scented and surprisingly ruthless, is not one to let sleuthing a horrific crime get in the way of an elegant dalliance.

The redoubtable Phryne Fisher is holidaying at Cave House, a Gothic mansion in the heart of the Victorian mountain country.

But the peaceful country surroundings mask danger. Her host is receiving death threats, lethal traps are set without explanation around the house and the parlour maid is found strangled to death.

What with the reappearance of the mysterious funerary urns, apair of young lovers, an extremely eccentric swagman, an angry outcast heir, and the luscious Lin Chung, Phryne's attention has definitely been caught.

Phryne's search for answers takes her deep into the dungeons of the house and of the limestone Buchan caves. But what will she find this time?

    " One of the best in the series so far! I really enjoyed this one. This is a fun little series - there are not many light detective series out there these days. This one had quite a few nods to Agatha Christie i.e. Miss Mary Mead - the little old lady! Lots of fun! "

    " Phryne with a hat tip to Agatha Christie. Can it get any better! "

    " I loved the Agatha Christie touch of Miss Mary Mead who is a crocheting version of the knitting Miss Marple of St Mary Mead. The descriptions of Cave House were so colourful as to etch it in the imagination. Another great read. "

    " Phryne Fisher is at a house party in the country when their party is stuck as the roads flood. After a maid is attacked and other strange happenings occur, she investigates where everyone is hiding secrets. Another fun installment in a great series "

    " A delightful series. A country house party mystery, and this one is a tribute to Agatha Christie. Amateur detective Phryne Fisher is a force to be reckoned with - but Miss Marple she is not! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana Stabenow | 11/25/2013

    " Country house murder, Australian style. The big a la Hercule Poirot wrap-up at the end had a little too much information introduced at the last moment, you get the feeling the author was on deadline. Still, it's Phryne, who is always worth reading. "

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

    " This Phryne Fisher mystery has almost an Agatha Christie feel to it. A country house party, threatening notes, a dead maid, disappearing guests and through it all Phryne remains the Phryne we've come to know. A fun departure from most of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zimes | 11/3/2013

    " There were too many coincidences for me. Phyrne was lovely like always but the mystery itself was not terribly interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 10/25/2013

    " I know Phryne is a free spirit who doesn't like being constricted by social norms, but really...two guys at one house party? On the other hand, Ms. Greenwood has moved on from her favorite adverb! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 8/14/2013

    " Not quite a much fun as some of the previous Phryne Fisher books, Urn Burial is an unapologetic farce. In a nod to this reality, one of the characters makes reference to Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, with which this novel shares some elements. Not bad for all that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evamaria | 9/8/2012

    " This is one of my favorite Miss Fisher books so far - it's Kerry Greenwood's take on the classic Golden Age mysteries (keep your eyes open for the Miss Marple cameo!), but of course with some Phryne twists... Also, the delectable Lin Chung plays a prominent role, which is always a pleasure. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dot | 9/3/2012

    " An amusing read in the Phryne Fisher series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Francisco | 8/26/2012

    " Phryne, Dot, Mr. Lin and his manservant Li Pen take a drive to visit Tom Reynolds in his country home. This is a big to do among the wealthy and things go wrong -- there are many secrets about and its up to Phryne to uncover them. "
