"The sixteenth Fisher novel has all the qualities of its forerunners: a snazzy, jazzy, outspoken heroine; a cast of engaging supporting players; and a sharply plotted mystery. As usual, too, the author vividly creates the setting--1920s-era Melbourne--and really makes us feel as though we've spent some time there. Another strong entry in a consistently entertaining series." -"Booklist ""of Murder in the Dark"" ""One of the most exciting and dangerous of the adventures into which Phryne's fabulous and risky lifestyle have led her." -"Kirkus Reviews" of "Murder in the Dark" "Australian author Greenwoodas fine Phryne Fisher mystery combines suspense and humor with a taut race to unmask a master assassin before he can strike again. The irrepressible and defiantly unflappable Phryne Fisher decides to attend a lavish four-day celebration in Melbourne, athe Last Best Party of 1928, a despite anonymous and deadly warnings to keep away, which include a coral snake. One of the partyas hosts, Gerald Templar, becomes worried after Tarquin, the orphan boy heas adopted, disappears. The connection between Tarquinas vanishing and the escalating acts of violence from the killer who calls himself the Joker is far from obvious, and Fisher has no shortage of suspects to consider among the eccentric guests, including a man whoas modeled himself on Oscar Wilde. The Jokeras identity will surprise many readers, but as usual for this long-running series (/Cocaine Blues/, etc.), the major pleasures come from Greenwoodas wry voice and the larger-than-life Fisher." -- "Publishers Weekly"""of" Murder in the Dark" "The sixteenth Fisher novel has all the qualities of its forerunners: a snazzy, jazzy, outspoken heroine; a cast of engaging supporting players; and a sharply plotted mystery.
