Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Historical
This is where it all started! The first classic Phryne
Fisher mystery, featuring our delectable heroine, cocaine,
communism and adventure. Phryne leaves the tedium of
English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never
The London season is in full
fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honorable Phryne
Fisher--she of the green-grey eyes, diamant garters and
outfits that should not be sprung suddenly on those of
nervous dispositions--is rapidly tiring of the tedium of
arranging flowers, making polite conversations with
retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men.
Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try
her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne,
Almost immediately from the
time she books into the Windsor Hotel, Phryne is embroiled
in mystery: poisoned wives, cocaine smuggling rings,
corrupt cops and communism--not to mention erotic
encounters with the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de
Lisse--until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the
Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.
