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!
