Series: Phryne Fisher #3 And here we have another fun installment in the Phryne Fisher mystery series. This time around the murder seemed a little more thought out, and some of objections to plot twists that I had were smoothed over by explanations later on. I still think it’s a really unlikely wa...

If only I could have a stack of all the Phyrne Fisher books, placed right beside my bed, with a cocktail easily to hand, so that as soon as I finished the one book I could pick up the next with barely a breath between.As a side note, these books are a prime example of the female gaze: Phryne spends ...

Well, I was wrong. The good Scot doctor is still alive and well. Dr MacMillan made an appearance in this third novel. A lot of improvement in the show not tell, in the depth of the character development. The mystery plot are never really hard to solve but kept me reading. Again Greenwood tackles a h...

What this country 1920s Australia coming to these days? A body can hardly take a train without being chloroformed or horrifically murdered or having molested orphans palmed off on her. And it was such a short book, too! When you subtract all the time spent talking about clothes and seducing the bori...

Phryne saves the day again, with more hot sex. I'm not into guessing the end of mysteries, so hardcore puzzlers might not enjoy the story, but I like Phyrne a lot and her flapper lifestyle makes me happy.
