    Story

    Phryne Fisher is doing one of her favorite things -dancing at the Green Mill (Melbourne's premier dance hall) to the music of Tintagel Stone's Jazzmakers, the band who taught St Vitus how to dance. And she's wearing a sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress. Nothing can flap the unflappable Phryne -especially on a dance floor with so many delectable partners. Nothing except death, that is.

    Su says: "The best so far"
    "Kerry Greenwood and Stephanie Daniel - unbeatable!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Green Mill Murder the most enjoyable?

    Stephanie Daniel's performance brings the characters to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Phryne Fisher has become one of my favorite fictional characters. Kerry Greenwood has written her with sympathy, panache, and lots of tongue-in-cheek. I confess, however, that my second favorite character is Mr. Butler, the butler.


    What about Stephanie Daniel???s performance did you like?

    Her performance is exceptional. She does not narrate, she performs. I sometimes need to remind myself that there is only one actor and not a whole cast. Her timing is excellent, and her portrayals are superb. I can't imagine anyone else performing Phryne. And she has a way with accents. They are natural and unaffected, adding to the realism of the performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her sympathetic portrayal of shell-shocked soldiers is moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to many of Stephanie Daniel's performances of the Phryne Fisher books, and while I think Death by Water is my favorite, this ranks right up there with the best.
