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'.
Set in 1920s Melbourne, this series certainly has become an international success, both in print and on TV.
Here, we find that famed conductor Hugh Tregennis has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fishers’ assistance (once again) in investigating the case. The maestro certainly has been murdered—and in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a score to settle! But how many killers is Phryne (pronounced “Fry-ney”) really stalking? There are numerous discordant sounds (and the usual red herrings that belong to the mystery genre) arising before we get to the coda—and the ensuing applause.
But there’s more to this storyline than just the overture of Tregennis’ death. At the same time, Rupert Sheffield, with his dark curls and disdainful air, is taking Melbourne by storm. This famed mathematician and code-breaker knows all the angles and is confident that there is no problem he can’t solve! He’s certainly taken the heart of Phryne’s old friend from the trenches of World War I, John Wilson. Phryne recognizes Sheffield as a man who attract danger and is determined to protect John from harm. Again, she cleverly orchestrates the entire performance!
While Mendelssohn’s “Elijah,” memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne’s past (and she certainly has one!Read more ›
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.
