Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne-amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.
Here the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease-and all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast.
Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher series was called "the best Australian import since Nicole Kidman" in Booklist's starred review of Away With the Fairies.
Kerry Greenwood is the author of 38 novels and six non-fiction books. Among her many honors, Ms. Greenwood has received the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Austrialia.
