Description


This is where it all started The first of Phryne's adventures from Australia's most elegant and irrepressible sleuth.

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.
