Worth a listern
Great Auzzie Story
An exciting, gripping yarn. Loved this story, was introduced to Phryne Fisher through the Australian Television network and was a little worried that the audible would not.match up to the audible, not the case. Stephanie Daniel's narrated it wonderfully .
Loved Dot's continuing innocence and the exploration of Jewish culture, found this really interesting and looking at the perceptions of finding a Jewish state from a 1920's Jewish perspective.
Greenwood weaver this into the story and for me added further interest into the mystery.
Loved the scene with the scientist's house where the mystery finally unfolds, found it funny as well as exciting.
Greenwood weaves humour, sadness and excitement throughout the book, just loved it!
