The Honourable Phryne Fisher is a delightfully emancipated young lady, with a taste for the best in life and for crime. When Phryne investigates, we know that we will see the best, or worst, of early twentieth century Australia.

In this book, she is hunting missing maidens in her home of Saint Kilda. Kerry Greenwood's style is equally delightful. Her pace is fast, her characters and scenes well drawn, and her prose is light and easy.

Nothing beats curling up with a good Phryne Fisher mystery and your favourite indulgence -- food, beverage, animal or human.
