  • Murder and Mendelssohn: A Phryne Fisher Mystery

    Story

    An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance. Hugh Tregennis has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls and disdainful air of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They've certainly taken the heart of Phryne's old friend from the trenches of WWI, John Wilson. Phryne recognises Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder and Mendelssohn to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love Stephanie Daniel's narration. I think it provides an excellent facet to an already wonderful story. This is not my favorite of the Phryne Fisher books, but it is very much worthy of its esteemed company.

    Emma Porter is 40, fat, frumpy, and a passionate amateur gardener. When her longtime lover dumps her for a younger woman, Emma escapes the cloying sympathy of family and friends by setting out on a summer-long driving tour of England's glorious gardens. A Dimity-contrived coincidence brings her to Penford Hall, a sprawling Gothic mansion in Cornwall, where she finds a duke in search of a missing lantern with extraordinary powers.

    Linda says: "One of my favorite books ruined by the reader."

    Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

    Probably not. I have the old versions of Aunt Dimity's Death and Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil, which were recorded by Christina Moore. They're fantastic, but I have to agree with one of the previous reviewers - Teri Clark Linden sounds like she's reading to a class of under-performing children. The words are very carefully enunciated and there are fairly long pauses between them, especially for the English characters. I love, love, love Nancy Atherton, but I don't think I'll be getting any more of the audios, which is disappointing. I was so excited to see an expanded selection that I didn't even notice it was a new reader.
