Stephanie Daniel's narrations of Kerry Greenwood's Australian mysteries are such delicious pleasure one worries that listening to them will pile on the pounds. Have no fear. Hearing Phryne Fisher's adventures in 1920s Melbourne is calorie free and as satisfying as high tea followed by a champagne dinner. The plot involves a kidnapped child, a murder, and Phryne doing some airplane wing-walking as well as mystery solving. Daniel's own Australian accent is light and easy; her voice is a pleasurable alto during the narrative sections, and in between she offers a wealth of character portrayals. Everyone from Phryne, an upper-crust Brit, to little children, to Australian good old boys is believable—and a joy to spend time with.
