Publisher's Summary

Unforgettable characters and a fascinating 1920s setting.
It's the end of the roaring twenties, and the exuberant and Honourable Phryne Fisher is dancing and gaming with gay abandon. But she becomes bored with London and the endless round of parties. In search of excitement, she sets her sights on a spot of detective work in Melbourne, Australia. And so mystery and the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de Lisse, appear in her life. From then on it's all cocaine and communism until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

A positively delightful find

This was a delightful find - kept my interest right to end. A most unusual set of characters which build up as the books develop. I would recommend this series to everyone.

Based in the 1920,s, the heroine is extremely unique having colleagues and acquaintenances from all walks of life and a varitious appetite for life, adventure and love.

Just wonderful!

Very enjoyable

Any additional comments?

This is a beautifully narrated book and narration is one of the most important features in an audiobook. I've had perfectly good books which I've enjoyed reading completely ruined because the reader's voice/accent is jarring. Phyrne, the heroine, is very engaging and the story moves along at a good pace. All the other characters are well-rounded. Heartily recommended and I've just downloaded two more Phryne Fisher audiobooks.
