Reviews

Phryne Fisher is gutsy and adventurous, and also well endowed with plenty of grey matter. She has it over Robicheaux and Poirot because she’s drop-dead gorgeous.
West Australian
From beginning to end, Greenwood infuses her series with evocative settings, multidimensional characters and satisfying mysteries.
