ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is a collection of short stories, featuring the fabulous Phryne Fisher. It is an updated edition of the 2007  book 'A Question of Death' but contains four new stories (written in 2019-20) and with some of the older stories tightened up or slightly re-written because Kerry saw bits in them that needed attention! Any fan will welcome a dive back into the world of Phryne, with her gorgeous costumes and insatiable appetites for the good things (and good-looking men) in life, as well as her penchant for mystery and solving crimes. I also enjoyed the lovely introduction which firmly explains that this is the world of book-Phryne, not TV-Phryne (who she loved and admired) - so plunge on in: Melbourne 1928 is waiting for you! Lindy

The Honourable Phryne Fisher - she of the Lulu bob, Cupid's bow lips, diamante garters and pearl-handled pistol - is the 1920s' most elegant and irrepressible sleuth.

Miss Phryne Fisher is up to her stunning green eyes in intriguing crime in each of these entertaining, fun and compulsively readable stories. With the ever-loyal Dot, the ingenious Mr Butler and all of Phryne's friends and household, the action is as fast as Phryne's wit and logic.

'With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre.' The Australian
