Item Description...
During an excursion to Luna Park with her two daughters, sister, and maid, 1920s Australian sleuth Phryne Fisher comes face to face with a mummified, bullet-ridden corpse and embarks on an investigation that takes her to the rural town of Castlemaine, where she discovers that someone will do anything to stop her quest for the truth. Reprint.

Publishers Description
The fabulous Phryne Fisher, her sister Beth and her faithful maid, Dot, decide that Luna Park is the perfect place for an afternoon of fun and excitement with Phryne's two daughters, Ruth and Jane. But in the dusty dark Ghost Train, amidst the squeals of horror and delight, a mummified bullet-studded corpse falls to the ground in front of them. Phryne Fisher's pleasure trip has definitely become business. Digging into this longstanding mystery takes her to the country town of Castlemaine where it's soon obvious that someone is trying to muzzle her investigations. With unknown threatening assailants on her path, Phryne seems headed for more trouble than usual.... "Greenwood weaves historical data into the plot like gold thread, giving it richness without weighing it down. -Booklist "An unforgettable character, with a heart as big as her pocket-book, a fine disregard for convention and an insatiable appetite for life." -Denver Post "Appealing characters and witty enjoyable caper."- Publishers Weekly Kerry Greenwood is the author of more than 40 novels and the recipient of the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Australia. -Publishers Weekly

Book review: Castlemaine Murders  Jan 1, 2008
Kerry Greenwood's mysteries, that have her heroine, Phryne Fisher, uncovering the secrets of Australians in the early 1900's, are always entertaining. She steeps the tales in Australian history and includes well thought out social commentary as well. Castlemaine Murders is interesting, informative and fun, but not so much as the earlier Phryne Fisher mysteries.
A waste of a nice setting...  Jul 3, 2007
Upon finding myself with time to spare in a library one morning, my eye chanced upon this book, one of a series of which I had previous perused a few & found them wanting. Returning to the fabulous adventures of dear Phryne after several years increased my dislike of the woman. She is is the absolutely perfectest person on the planet & the reader's main response is to want to slap her. She is "posh" but doen't let it interfere in her interactions with lesser beings; she has a maid, but they're really like bestest friends; she has a married lover, but his wife approves; she has a lovely house with staff; a gorgeous car; a drool-worthy wardrobe; is understanding, open minded, accepting of others' differences and has adopted two common little orphan girls. While the mysteries themselves are diverting and the descriptions of Melbourne wonderful, one spends most of the book hoping that the heroine will be pushed under a train or one of those zippy Melbourne trams.
Read This Series!  Apr 2, 2007
Kerry Greenwood's series featuring Phryne Fisher--1920s flapper, feminist, and clotheshorse--is delightful. Phryne is a most unflappable flapper, and the cast of minor characters in each book is equally deft. The writing is excellent, the humor dry, the plots enjoyable, and a touch of authenticity about Australia in the 1920s adds to the general enjoyment. Highly recommended--a cozy series that is not too sweet.
The Castlemaine Murders, by Kerry Greenwood  Jan 12, 2007
I enjoyed this book very much. I liked it because it takes place in Australia in the 1920's. The author uses local history to make her plot interesting. The main character is well developed and likeable. The suppporting characters are also well developed and work well in the plot.
a mystery series with everything  Nov 16, 2005
the appearance of a uniform hardback edition of the phyrne fisher mysteries is a wonderful thing. the first three in the series appeared in this country in paperback in the early 90s, but for some unknown reason, none of the rest of the series until now was available on this continent. i ordered most of my paperback copies used from australia (i love them enough to pay the postage!)

mystery readers familiar with the golden age of mysteries and/or 19th century potboilers will recognize ms. greenwood's take on an old favorite plot. her writing is wonderful; the characters fully drawn; the subplots varied, interesting and enjoyable; the historical facts fascinating; the dialogue, humor and wit sparkling. the villains are fairly guessable in this outing, but that doesn't detract from the story.

of the thirteen or fourteen titles currently in this series, i can't think of one not worth reading and re-reading.
