Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, now streaming on Netflix, starring Essie Davis as the honourable Phryne Fisher

"A most charming, sexy, independent, and candid heroine; clever, literate dialog; and closely woven plotting will win immediate fans for this debut series." —Library Journal STARRED review

Seven Australian soldiers, carousing in Paris in 1918, unknowingly witness a murder, with devastating consequences. Ten years later, two are dead...under very suspicious circumstances.

Phryne (pronounced Fry-Knee, to rhyme with briny) Fisher's friends, Bert and Cec (sometimes cabbies and sometimes men for hire), appeal to her for help. They were part of this group of soldiers in 1918 and they fear for their lives and for those of the other three men. It's only as Phryne delves into the investigation that she, too, remembers being in Montparnasse on that very same, and fatal, day.

While Phryne is occupied with memories of Montparnasse past and the race to outpace the murderer, she finds troubles of a different kind at home. Her lover, Lin Chung, is about to be married. And the effect this is having on her own usually peaceful household is disastrous....

A Phryne Fisher Mystery read by Julia Davis. At the end of World War 1 in Paris, Bert, Cec and 5 other Australian soldiers witness a murder when a man is pushed under a Paris train. Now, in Australia in 1928, two are very recently dead and Bert and Cec believe they are being targetted. Phryne was in Paris in 1918 and remembers the train incident. It also brings back memories of the man she was infatuated with then. Now she learns that he has recently arrived in Melbourne.

This is the best Phryne Fisher yet. I learned more about Phyrne's past in this book than any other, and I think this adventure found Phryne with more on her plate than ever before. A murderer is on the loose, and Bert or Cec could be next, a young girl is missing, Lin Chung is getting married, and Phyrne's orderly household is in turmoil. And, as if this weren't enough, a ghost from Phryne's past has returned, forcing her to face memories long-buried. Our heroine may need to be rescued herself before all the loose ends can be tied up! Definitely tops the list of my favorite Phryne Fisher mysteries.

If you're a fan of Phryne Fisher's already, you'll enjoy this one. If you aren't, this is still a very good book, though other, earlier, books in the series might be a better introduction to this delightful sleuth and her menagerie of recurring side characters. This story provides some excellent back story to Phryne and also a few other characters which may prove a bit confusing to newer readers.
