Imagine Emma Peel as a flapper, and you have Phryne Fisher Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne--amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades. In fact, the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher here, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease. And she does it all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she's flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child, Phryne does everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza. Kerry Greenwood, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Australian Crime Writers Association, began her Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) in 1989 with Cocaine Blues. She has written seventeen books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol.

Review quote

This series is the best Australian import since Nicole Kidman, and Phryne is the flashiest new female sleuth in the genre.--Booklist starred review of Away with the Fairies
