Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth biplane in flight is excitement-enough for most people, but not Phryne Fisher, aviatrix, socialite, and private investigator. Whether she's seducing beautiful young men, foiling nefarious kidnappers, or simply deciding what to wear to dinner, Phryne handles everything with inimitable panache and flair. In this, the second Phryne Fisher mystery, Australia's most glamorous detective flies even higher, handling murder, a kidnapping and the usual array of beaus—all before adjourning to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. “Phryne Fisher's delightful flapper antics will appeal to fans of Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey.” — Lamia Doumato, Library Journal

3.0 Okay Second Book in Miss Fisher's Murder Series

In this book, she has to help a man accused of murdering his father, rescue a kidnapped child and of course, seduce some men.I didn't find this book as good as the first one. I like Phryne Fisher, she's a great character, but the ...

2.0 Review: Flying too High
I am happy to tell yout that Phryne Fisher is still perfect in everything she does! In this book we learn that she is also a great pilot and a perfect shot! She also uses her awesome pilot skill to almost scare somebody to death who wasn't nice to her on one occasion but it's OK because he is a...

At the risk of being called blasphemous by my fellow reading buffs, I announce that this is the rare occasion when a movie is better than a book it’s based on. Or a TV series, as is the case here. I’m a big fan of the Australian mini TV series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. I love everything in it:...
