    The glorious Phryne Fisher returns to the spotlight in her seventh adventure. Fisher is an independent, unconventional PI with competence, unflappability and flamboyance in equal measures.

    Running late to the Hinkler gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, she meets some thugs in a dark alley and handles them convincingly before they can ruin her silver dress. Phryne then finds that she has rescued a gorgeous Chinese, Lin Chung, and his grandmother, and is briefly mistaken for a deity.

    Any additional comments?

    I do love this series. If you want to love it too, suspend disbelief; this is a getaway into a fantasy world. Everything works out for Phryne; she is an excellent pilot, can defend herself physically, smokes gaspers, has perfect shiny hair, a wardrobe to die for and can have any man she wants. Then, of course, there are all the murders that happen around her with exotic characters involved. The powers that be (police, lords and ladies, etc.) put great stock in her guidance. And there's just enough tasteful sex (on silk sheets) to add a some piquancy. It's not gritty reality, it's fun fantasy in a decade that I have always wanted to time-travel to. Stephanie Daniel's narration is flawless. She captures Phryne Fisher's aplomb and cool poise perfectly. Escapism WITH some interesting and accurate historical references at its best. Brava Kerry Greenwood and Stephanie Daniels.

    This particular book will definitely appeal to those who enjoy the theatre and, most especially, Gilbert & Sullivan. As my family has performed in so many G&S productions, it was particularly appealing to me.
