JUST MURDERED Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries, Book 1

by | Read by Geraldine Hakewill

Mystery & Suspense • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Geraldine Hakewill charms in Kovacic's "Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries" novel, based on a hit Australian television series of the same name. The story introduces Peregrine Fisher, long-lost niece of Phryne Fisher, the investigative heroine of Kerry Greenwood's bestselling mystery series. It's Melbourne in 1960. Phryne has disappeared in New Guinea. Her heiress, Peregrine, joins Phryne's Adventuresses Club and is soon investigating the death of a local fashion model. Hakewill narrates with clarity, good humor, and swingy enthusiasm as befits Peregrine's personality. Hakewill's vivid rendering of the rest of the cast, including a nasty detective superintendent, an uptight inspector, competitive shopgirls, and other Adventuresses, is nuanced and enlivens the sprightly action. Add luscious descriptions of fashion and culture, and, hey, totally groovy. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
