Listeners are richly entertained and enlightened on whatever fascinating subject Greenwood chooses as the springboard for each of her mysteries. Narrator Stephanie Daniel is outstanding, as usual, in delivering the story’s varied cast. The intriguing Phryne Fisher is Daniel’s standout character. When a junior reporter goes missing while investigating the disappearance of several poor pregnant girls, Phryne springs into action. She soon learns that the girls were housed by nuns and worked in their laundry. Phryne; her maid-companion, Dot; and her adopted children assist with the investigation. Daniel deftly creates realistic children and makes Dot the perfect contrast to the almost overpowering Phryne. An afterword reveals Greenwood's sources, further illuminating the sad story. S.G.B.
