"one of Greenwood's stronger entries in her acclaimed series set in 1920s Australia...The author artfully blends action, humor and deduction." --"Publisher's Weekly ""The change of scene and a hint of Dorothy L. Sayers gives the delightfully refreshing Phryne one of her best cases to date." --"Kirkus Reviews""This series is the best Australian import since Nicole Kidman, and Phyrne is the flashiest new female sleuth in the genre." --"Booklist "starred review of "Away with the Faeries"
"Pure indulgence ... a 1920s heroine for the 90s ... a fast and elegant read." (Who Weekly)
"Phyrne Fisher has solved quite a few mysteries during her career. Here a holiday trip to Sydney is just what she needs for some R&R. But when her personal maid's sister goes missing and she agrees to defend a young man for theft, she finds herself smack-dab in the midst of black magic, deceit, violence, and murder. Stephanie Daniel proves to be Phyrne's equal. Daniel's narration reveals an intelligent woman, always on par with any male counterpart. The colorful characters, whether professors or men of the underworld, are portrayed impeccably. Clever, witty, and filled with gusto, Greenwood's novel, as delivered by Daniel, is an exciting whodunit." (AudioFile Magazine)
