Book Description

15 Oct 2013 Phryne Fisher Mystery (Book 20)
To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand. An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance to enter a world in which he is truly lost. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? While Mendelssohn's Elijah, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne's past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders. Kerry Greenwood's novels include the Corinna Chapman series and the Phryne Fisher mysteries, as well as many books for young adults. She is not married, has no children, lives with a registered Wizard, and when she is not writing she stares blankly out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder and Mendelssohn 7 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Miss Phryne Fisher has been asked to help her friend Jack Robinson, the detective, to investigate the murder of a musical conductor. He thinks Phryne might be able to find out more than he can from the members of the choir. Never averse to a spot of sleuthing, Phryne agrees and joins the choir herself. It is soon clear to her that everyone could have had both motive and opportunity. Attending a lecture on the science of deduction, Phryne meets up with a former lover from the Great War, John Wilson, who is working with the exotic, but cold, Rupert Sheffield.

This is a fascinating and fast paced story which really has to be read to be appreciated and no review could do the plot justice. The writing is crisp and humorous; the background alternates between glamorous and poverty stricken; the characters are interesting and complex and the relationships between them are extremely well done. Nineteen twenties Melbourne comes vividly to life as does the glamorous and resourceful Phryne.

I have read all of this exciting and entertaining series and I think this is probably my favourite so far. There are some absolutely marvellous scenes which I found myself reading and re-reading just to appreciate them to the full. The series can be read out of order but it is probably best to read them in order so that you can appreciate the way the series characters grow and develop. The first book is `Cocaine Blues'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and cosy 24 Feb 2014
By Roman Clodia TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Ostensibly set in 1920s Australia, this is really one of those books which exists in a fictional faerie-land alongside the Daisy Dalrymple series and all those other books about high-society gels turned detective. Greenwood is clearly enjoying herself hugely in this musical romp as an obnoxious conductor is killed by having a choral score thrust down his throat...

What gives this series a slight edge is the overt sexuality of our heroine who is not averse to inviting various men into her boudoir before having her wicked way with them!

So this is cute and cosy with quirky and eccentric characters - good switch-off comfort reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical murder 28 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thank you Kerry Greenwood for another cracking good yarn. I have been waiting for this for along time and it was worth it.I love the period details and the fact that there is a darkness behind the story which gives depth, I also know more about Mendelssohn than before and that can only be a good thing.The only downside is that I now have to wait for the next book.
