Phryne Fisher is trying to enjoy a gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore at His Majesty's Theatre, but there are dark doings afoot. The leading man is poisoned, followed by his understudy, then a massive curtain weight crushes a company member to a pulp. It certainly looks as if someone has it in for the production, but the show must go on! Murder and poison make this a case for the Melbourne police, but as a friend of the troupe's manager, Phryne can't help but become involved. The specter of a deceased actress haunts the theater, gloves go missing, whiskey goes green, the elusive scent of hyacinths wafts though the wings, a child with a tell-tale birthmark is sought. And, love appears to be blossoming between Phryne and the handsome young scion of a Chinese merchant family.Fans of Gilbert and Sullivan will particularly enjoy this, the seventh of Greenwood's popular Phryne Fisher mysteries set in 1920's Australia.

5.0 Review: Ruddy Gore (Phrynie Fisher Mysteries #7)

Well, the truth of the matter is that I was first exposed to the indomitable Miss Fisher through the television series, and this story was one that appealed to me greatly. GHOSTS! The THEATER! Twists and turns...

3.0 Ruddy Gore: Phryne Fisher #7 (Phryne Fisher Mysteries)
A solid Phryne Fisher. This one set in the theater world where Phryne untangles quite a bit of yarns to get to the truth. Good use of Gilbert and Sullivan both in the set up of the theater and the plot line. This one opens a new chapter in Phryne's series, it introduces I believe new recurring chara...

I enjoyed the book. It was a fun adventure, but it did feel a bit disjointed, as though the two plots were having trouble coming together. Perhaps that's because they were so very different. A heavy hand was needed to weave them together. I think part of my problem with the book was the fact tha...
