Greenwood’s classy British whodunit, set in Melbourne, Australia, in 1929 once again features the young, irrepressible private eye Phryne Fisher. With the help of her eager coterie of snoops, including down-to-earth housekeeper Dot and Phryne's adopted daughters, they delve into a suicide that could be a homicide and the hunt for the illegitimate heir to a fortune. The superb Stephanie Daniel, who has been down the road with Phryne many times before, shines as the smart, sharp-tongued, but totally likable, sleuth; her no-nonsense housekeeper; and a group of vulgar "bright young things." This seventeenth in the series is as crisp, clever, and thoroughly enjoyable as ever. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
