About the Author

Kerry Greenwood is the author of twenty-seven novels and the editor of two collections. Previous novels in the Phryne Fisher series are Cocaine Blues, Murder on the Ballarat Train, The Green Mill Murder, Blood and Circuses, Death on the Victoria Dock, Ruddy Gore, Urn Burial, Raisins and Almonds, Death Before Wicket, Away with the Fairies, Murder in Montparnasse, The Castlemaine Murders and Queen of the Flowers. She is also the author of several books for young adults and the Delphic Women series. When she is not writing she is an advocate in Magistrates' Court for the Legal Aid Commission. She is not married, has no children and lives with a registered Wizard.


In her latest adventure, the incomparable Phryne Fisher (Murder in Montparnasse)-beautiful, wealthy, sophisticated, but, above all, daring and intelligent-is confronted with two unrelated crimes, murder and child kidnapping. While investigating these cases, she also takes a daredevil walk on the wing of a plane in flight, poses for a sculptor, then makes love to him. With each Phryne Fisher novel, Greenwood widens the social circle of the inimitable detective/noblewoman; here we are introduced to Mr. and Mrs. Butler-you guessed it-Phryne's butler and cook. Speaking through Phryne, the author also offers catty yet humorous descriptions of characters, food, drink, decor, and clothing of the 1920s while lending credibility to Phryne's unbelievable exploits. Phryne Fisher's delightful flapper antics will appeal to fans of Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey.

In Kerry Greenwood's Flying Too High: A Phryne Fisher Mystery, the plucky Australian flapper sleuth faces two challenges: tracking down the kidnappers of a young girl and identifying the murderer of a bully whose son has been charged with the offense. Fisher again displays an impressive set of skills, from air-walking and daredevil plane flying to blood-splatter analysis, and Greenwood leavens her plot with Wodehousian characters and wit.
