Publisher's Summary

Phryne Fisher drinks cocktails, dances the tango, is the companion of wharfies, and is expert at conducting an elegant dalliance. It's the 1920s in Melbourne and Phryne is asked to investigate the puzzling death of a famous author and illustrator of fairy stories. To do so, Phyrne takes a job within the women's magazine that employed the victim and finds herself enmeshed in her colleagues' deceptions. But while Phryne is learning the ins and outs of magazine publishing first hand, her personal life is thrown into chaos. While waiting for her lover Lin Chung's imminent return from a silk-buying expedition to China, she receives an unusual summons from Lin Chung's family followed by a series of mysterious assaults and warnings.


What the Critics Say

"It's 1928, and the very unconventional Phryne Fisher sparkles with wit and champagne elegance ... Stephanie Daniel performs with genteel ease. Her upper-class Australian accents and her wild assortment of reputable and disreputable characters are truly amazing ... must listening." ( AudioFile Magazine)

Jolly good fun

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and while I do my tasks I like to listen to audio books. My current favourite is the Phryne Fisher series! The books are well read and the mysteries and characters are entertaining without being too grim! Some of the more sensual scenes mean that I have to make sure I am not listening with my 6 year old in the room.
