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 great value at only $24.95!

G&S plus a mystery!!!!!!  Aug 27, 2008
Knew nothing about Gilbert and Sullivan, and learned a tremendous amount about the scores and what was expected of the performers...combined with a delightful mystery....great way to spend an evening.
 
Ruddy Gore  Jul 12, 2008
I am originally from England, so find this series of Kerry Greenwood very entertaining, lots of the phrases she uses are familiar to me. I am now into her other series Earthly Delights and am not enjoying it - the author makes a book interesting with her Historical reference as well as the adventure of the current book.
 
Murder stalks the boards  Dec 5, 2007
First Sentence: The hatchet flicked past, end over end, and struck a wooden shutter with a hollow thud.

On the way to a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, private inquiry agent The Honorable Phryne Fisher helps to break up an attack on an elderly Chinese woman but meets her attractive grandson, Lin Chung. But it is at the theatre Phryne find her newest case as two actors are poisoned, a prompter is killed and cast members fear a ghost haunting the production.

When you take a character I love, set the story in the 1920s and add Gilbert and Sullivan, how can you go wrong. Greenwood didn't. She has created one of my favorite characters; strong, smart, independent and with a definite sense of who she is and what is right, despite the attitudes of others. Her character rescues and adopts people along the way giving a sense of relationship to the story. Greenwood's plotting is wonderfully done; I didn't guess the killer even though I probably should have.

This was a delightful traditional mystery with all the right elements to make for a very good read.
 
This is gorgeous, all the atmosphere and independence - women of the 1920's  Dec 7, 2005
I loved this book, it was the first of the Phryne Fisher mysteries I found. They had been recommended to me before but I never got around to reading them until now.

Fisher is an independent woman in the 1920's and this is (apparently) a prequel to her original mysteries, becuase in this one she meets the Chinese lover who features so often later on.

Her coolness under all pressure, who ability to function with humour and strength in all circumstances are wonderful - and there is still a sense of the atmosphere of "Brideshead revisited" in the wealth and glamour.

This is set with Ruddigore, the Gilbert and Sullivan comic Opera in the background - Phryne and Bunji (don't you love that name!) were on the way watch the opera when they come across a Chinese woman being attacked. Phryne picks up an axe and bops one of the attackers on the neck (scientifically of course and using the blunt side)

I didn't know Ruddigore well before this, but this is a great introduction to this opera and it fits in well with the mystery she has to solve.

Fun light and satisfying reading, will definitely be getting more of these to read. To coin a phrase - she is definitely a "kick-ass" style heroine who is fun to read about.
 
phyrne's phinally back in the states  Nov 16, 2005
i found the first phyrne in a wonderful used bookstore in portland, oregon, and started searching for the rest. i had to order most of them used from australia.

now, at last, she's back, in a uniform edition yet.

ms. greenwood writes well, and, as the series progresses, her plots, her characterizations, the atmosphere all become increasing fine. she writes with humor, an impressive depth of understanding of people (and animals), a monumental grasp of the 20s and the First World War--the historical details are fascinating. her ethical standards are exemplary, as is her compassion.

you might think ethics and compassion are strange things to include in the review of a murder mystery, but ms. greenwood's books are more than murder mysteries--there are elements of social satire, comedy, and tragedy of course. readers of golden age mysteries will enjoy ms. greenwood's take on the conventions.

_ruddy gore_ adds a ghost story to a theatrical setting. ms. greenwood's familiarity with actors and singers is hilariously obvious--but she equally obviously likes stage people.

i did not guess the murderer, though the clues were there--i haven't guessed the villain in any of the books since the third (_murder on the ballarat train_).

so, if you like wonderful writing, interesting history, humor, and really good mysteries, read this series. it's the bee's knees' and the cat's meow.
