It all takes place in 1928 in Melbourne when Phryne arrives with great style and a special task. Kerry Greenwood, the author, has paid great attention to detail both historically and geographically, and in many of the books she has listed her reference materials. The stories are a wonderful read, light and easy and great fun. I have enjoyed exchanging just a little email correspondence with Kerry including identifying the landmarks in Melbourne and some musing about how well it would work for the screen.
|Ain't she fabulous? Crime, feminism and fun go well together here.|

Yours as ever,
