    "twisted sister"

    Phryne's sister is making her presence known ,and the very cool clam and collected Mr Lin Chung ,is playing peace maker between his family and the whoo's ,personally I could have lived with out this ,the slow pace of the elderly Chinese foke was starting to erk me.I never mind the appearance of the lovely Mr Lin but I just found myself wishing the tale would get back to our heroin .Stephine Daniels is never disappointing but having said this if this your first book in the sires your thinking of buying I would start closer to the beginning.

    "Phryne wins again"

    I just love these characters and the feminist viewpoint of the author. So well written with a great vocabulary.

    "I wished I liked it better"
    What did you like best about The Castlemaine Murders? What did you like least?

    I loved the Phryne sections, but the Chinese sections seemed too disjointed and were a distraction. It was like reading two books at once and it didn't work for me. I eventually started fast forwarding through the Lin Chung sections because they became less and less interesting as the book went on.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kerry Greenwood again?

    Absolutely.


    Do you think The Castlemaine Murders needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No thank you.
