Praise for Murder on the Ballarat Train "Phryne Fisher brings her usual insight, pluck and style to...Murder on the Ballarat Train. Greenwood effortlessly matches her irresistible heroine with a compelling plot." -Publishers Weekly "Greenwood's stories are brief, but she holds her own, writing well-thought-out plots starring the intelligent, sexy, liberated, and wealthy Phryne." -Library Journal When the 1920s' most glamorous lady detective, the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, arranges to go to Ballarat for the week, she eschews the excitement of her red Hispano-Suiza racing car for the sedate safety of the train. The last thing she expects is to have to use her trusty Beretta .32 to save the passengers' lives. As they sleep, they are poisoned with chloroform. Phryne is left to piece together the clues after this restful country sojourn turns into the stuff of nightmares with a young girl who can't remember anything, rumors of white slavery and black magic, and the body of an old woman missing her emerald rings. Then there is the rowing team and the choristers, all deliciously engaging young men. At first they seem like a pleasant diversion...The prolific Kerry Greenwood is the author of more than 40 books. Among her many honors, she has received the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Australia.

Review quote

On the train to Ballarat, 1920s Australian feminist flapper and private investigator Phryne Fisher (Flying Too High) wakes up to the smell of chloroform. She saves all her fellow passengers, except an old, cantankerous woman whose body is found at the side of the train tracks. While investigating the murder for the woman's daughter, Phryne also takes in an amnesiac waif on the train who has no knowledge of why she is traveling in the opposite direction of her ticket. Compared with other mysteries, Greenwood's stories are brief, but she holds her own, writing well-thought-out plots starring the intelligent, sexy, liberated, and wealthy Phryne. Greenwood lives in Melbourne, Australia. -Library Journal
