The Honorable Phryne Fisher--she of the Lulu bob, green eyes, cupid's bow lips, and diamante garters--is the 1920's most elegant sleuth. This sparkling collection of Phryne short stories and other Phryne miscellany is lavishly illustrated with divine color illustrations by Beth Norling.
About the Author
Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray and after wandering far and wide, she returned to live there. She has degrees in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st April 1982, a day which she finds both soothing and significant. Kerry has written twenty novels, a number of plays, including "The Troubadours" with Stephen D'Arcy, is an award-winning children's writer and has edited and contributed to several anthologies. The Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) began in 1989 with "Cocaine Blues" which was a great success. Kerry has written sixteen books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol. Kerry says that as long as people want to read them, she can keep writing them. In 2003 Kerry Won the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Australian Association.
"A most charming, sexy, independent, and candid heroine; clever, literate dialog; and closely woven plotting will win immediate fans.""Fans of the inimitable Phryne Fisher will rejoice in this cornucopia of short stories, recipes, lists of Phryne's favorite things, and other tidbits about the life of this female James Bond. For those readers who have yet to experience Greenwood's fearless bon vivant detective, this volume is a great introduction to many of the characters who inhabit the Phryne Fisher series." --"Historical Novels Review"
