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 looks back. The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honorable Phryne Fisher—she of the green-gray 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, Australia. 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.
'With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre.' - The Australian. This fabulous compendium of the fourth, fifth and sixth books in the critically acclaimed and much-loved Phryne Fisher mystery series, sees the divine and delectable Hon Phryne Fisher now comfortably ensconced in Melbourne society - but among the parties, the dancing, the flirtations and the assignations, somehow murder always finds a way in... In Blood and Circuses, there have been strange things happening at Farrell's Circus and Wild Beast Show - someone seems to want it to fail, and is prepared to resort to poison, assault and murder. Phryne goes undercover as a trick horse-rider, but she'll need all her tricks, intelligence and courage to see her through this mystery. Death at Victoria Dock sees Phryne tangling with bank robbers and anarchists on her way through tatoo parlours, pubs and spiritualist halls to find out who murdered a very young man who died in Phryne's arms. But when her beloved maid, Dot, is kidnapped, there's nothing that will stand in Phryne's way. In The Green Mill Murder, Phryne finds there are hidden perils in dancing the night away - like murder, blackmail and young men who vanish. But there are compensations to this case, including a dashingly handsome band leader, some fancy flying across the Australian Alps and a most unexpected tryst with a gentle stranger. 'Phryne . . . is a wonderful fantasy of how you could live your life if you had beauty, money, brains and superb self control.' - The Age.
The fourteenth seductive installment in the Phryne Fisher whodunnit series, see our utterly delightful eponymous heroine make a very welcome appearance as St Kilda's Queen of the Flowers. But when a body washes up on the beach, she must leave the carnival and find the killer. With more than a dash of glamour and serious helpings of style, the witty and courageous Phryne Fisher returns. In 1928 St Kilda's streets hang with fairy lights. Magic shows, marionettes, tea dances, tango competitions, lifesaving demonstrations, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all part of the Flower Parade. And who else should be chosen to be Queen of the Flowers but the gorgeous, charming and terribly fashionable Hon Phryne Fisher? Phryne needs a new dress and a swimming costume but she also needs a lot of courage to confront her problems: a missing daughter, the return of an old lover, and a young woman found drowned at the beach at Elwood.
