Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stephanie Daniel

Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

She smokes. She drinks. She isn’t overly fond of small children. She lives with adopted daughters, assorted animals, and faithful servants. It’s 1928, and the very unconventional Phryne Fisher sparkles with wit and champagne elegance. Phryne’s been asked to help solve the murder of a snoopy old woman who wrote fairy stories for a magazine devoted to encouraging women to pursue nontraditional roles without actually changing anything. Meanwhile, ruthless pirates on the South China Sea have captured Phryne’s lover, Lin Chung, and her Celtic blood is set to boiling. Stephanie Daniel performs with genteel ease. Her upper-class Australian accents and her wild assortment of reputable and disreputable characters are truly amazing. Kerry Greenwood’s “Agatha-Christie-meets-Indiana-Jones” plotting and Daniel’s energetic reading make this must listening. S.J.H.
