    1929: Girls are going missing in Melbourne. Little, pretty golden-haired girls. And not just pretty. Three of them are pregnant, poor girls from the harsh confines of the Magdalene Laundry. People are getting nervous. Polly Kettle, a pushy, self-important Girl Reporter with ambition and no sense of self-preservation, decides to investigate - and promptly goes missing herself. It's time for Phryne and Dot to put a stop to this and find Polly Kettle before something quite irreparable happens to all of them. It's all piracy and dark cellars, convents and plots, murder and mystery...and Phryne finally finds out if it's true that blondes have more fun.

    Story

    Initially I got this because it was on sale and the reviews were good, however I wish books had content ratings the way movies do. I would rate this pg-13 due to the licentious sexual content.

    Other than that, I found the first half boring and shallow because it was more about the glamor and sleuthing costumes worn by the main character than the crimes being solved.

    A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer, or has the murderer caught them?

    Story

    More than usual, King weaves intriguing and seemingly unrelated plot threads into a shocking design of revelations! In case you're wondering, Mary Russell's extensive yet spellbinding perception of personalities and settings in this novel account for the book's length compared to others in this series.

    I'd rate this PG for some violence and mature themes.

    This is a classic "girl likes the bad boy and their love is true" fiction story. I guess I don't fantasize that way so the story was unbelievably improbable. However, I did appreciate the lack of swearing and explicit sex scenes.

    It is Egypt in 2000 BC, where death gives meaning to life. At the foot of a cliff lies the broken, twisted body of Nofret, concubine to a ka-priest. Young, beautiful, and venomous, most agree that it was fate - she deserved to die like a snake! But at her father's house on the banks of the Nile, the priest's daughter Renisenb believes that the woman's death is suspicious. Increasingly, she becomes convinced that the source of evil lurks within their household - and watches helplessly as the family's passions explode in murder.

    A happily married woman commits suicide for no apparent reason; a young man tries to break some important news to the beautiful girl he had hoped to marry; a con girl plays the same bold game too often and a novelist embarks on a romantic adventure but is woefully disappointed.In all these stories, glimpses into personal lives are vividly portrayed, but they are all written with warmth and are wonderfully evocative.

    I'm a fan of Daphne's novels, but felt left hanging and frustrated with the vague and inconclusive endings of these short stories. Perhaps it's just a literary style that doesn't appeal to me since the ratings were high for this book. Sadness...

    The Mystery of the Yellow Room is Gaston Leroux's masterpiece, and it turned out to be his most successful book during his lifetime. It is one of the classics of early twentieth century detective fiction.

    After listening to the Phantom several times over and loving it, I was really disappointed with this book. Although the mystery is intriguing, there is too much expository narrative. I hung on to the end to the bitter end just to see how it turned out but wasn't impressed.

    In a tale delivering the best in the genre of romantic suspense, Willkie Collins’ novel The Yellow Mask, will hold you riveted from beginning to end. A priest believes the inheritance and great wealth of Count Fabio D’Ascoli was stolen from the Church many generations ago. This scheming priest decides to steal the money back and unleashes a mystery filled with terror and menace. Who is behind The Yellow Mask? Maddalena or...?

    Story

    Having listened to several Wilkie Collins books, this was my least favorite. Perhaps if the narrator was British (like Collins) or Italian (where the story takes place) I might have enjoyed the story better. Although the narrator differentiates the voices of the characters well, the emotional inflections she uses are at times contrary to the writing. Overall I was disappointed. Works of his that I would recommend are The Woman in White (I've only listened to the 24 hour BBC abridged version but it was excellent), The Moonstone narrated by Peter Jeffrey, and The Two Destinies narrated by Samuel West.
