This is one of the best Phryne books

I love the whole Phryne Fisher series but this has to be the best plot, best food, best decor and best costumes!

Fabulous Phryne

I love the story and most of the narration. A very gifted narrator but didn't enjoy any of the singing.

Wodehouse meets Christie

I do not say this lightly, I have only so far had this book but I will be getting all the others by her, but it was wonderful, it kept me guessing, but with the lightness of PG Wodehouse and set in the 1920's, so for fan's of old time murder mystery with very good cocktail recipes this is the book for you, ENJOY!

Again a fantastic period murder mystery

I just love this series of audiobooks.What can I say,fantastic period characters combined with a killer plot.
It is so addictive and has so many twists and turns with plenty of spice.
The 1920s at its best with a feelgood factor.
It certainly has me gripped.
Highly recommended listening,fantastic.

Not up to the usual standard

I was disappointed with this,although the narration by Stephanie Daniels is superb the storyline made me feel horrible.Even in today's world it would be extreme to encounter such a party,one cannot imagine it set in 1928/9 !!!
