    It all sounds simple enough as Phryne sets new investigations into motion. But when greed and fear are the motivating factors, people become ruthless and Phyrne quickly finds herself enmeshed in blackmail, secrets, lies and the dangerous influences of deep magic.

    What did you love best about Death Before Wicket?

    I adore all of Phryne's adventures. Kerry Greenwood is an excellent author and Stephanie Daniel's voice superb - in Death Before Wicket Kerry, Stephanie and Phryne manage to do what I thought in the impossible: make the game of Cricket interesting.
    Don't be put off by previous reviewer's comments of Stephanie Daniel having an allegedly poncy accent - she perfectly captures Australian accents of the period. If in doubt, I refer the listener to the australian characters in "The King's Speech" movie.
    Give the books a go and you'll be well rewarded.

    Phryne Fisher, scented and surprisingly ruthless, is not one to let sleuthing a horrific crime get in the way of an elegant dalliance. The redoubtable Phryne Fisher is holidaying at Cave House, a Gothic mansion in the heart of the Victorian mountain country. But the peaceful country surroundings mask danger. Her host is receiving death threats, lethal traps are set without explanation around the house and the parlour maid is found strangled to death.

    Nancy J says: "Homage to the Golden Age Mysteries and Christie!"
    "Least favorite of the Phryne novels, but"

    ...still a Phryne novel, so therefore better than most. Away from the usual location and cast of characters, the play on Agatha Christie books will be fun for those in the know. Less so for those, like myself, who find that kind of whodunit set piece a bit trying.
