Allen & Unwin 2001. 284g.

A Phryne Fisher Mystery.

Book purchased today from Ragmans, Kilsyth shopping centre, for special release.

From back cover:
"Phyrne Fisher - dangerous, passionate, kind, clever and seductive. She drinks cocktails, dances the tango, is the companion of wharfies, and is expert at conducting an elegant dalliance.

It's the 1920s in Melbourne and Phryne is asked to investigate the puzzling death of a famous author and illustrator of fairy stories. To do so, Phyrne takes a job within the women's magazine that employed the victim and finds herself enmeshed in her colleagues' deceptions.

But while Phryne is learning the ins and outs of magazine publishing first hand, her personal life is thrown into chaos. Impatient for her lover Lin Chung's imminent return from a silk-buying expedition to China, she instead receives an unusual summons from Lin Chung's family followed by a series of mysterious assaults and warnings."

My SIL bought the book with her from Australia when she came to stay Oct last year and it's taken me this long to get round to reading it. Will try and release this week.
Wow, what a great book. The time it is set (1928) is perfect as I love that period of time, so elegant.
I'll certainly be checking out other books in the series.
