Critic reviews

"Brimming with glamour, high life, and a hint of debauchery, Greenwood's series delivers a literary glass of champagne, lifting readers' spirits while tickling their fancies." ( Booklist US)

Too blue to be enjoyable. Detracted from mystery.

I'm a HUGE Phryne Fisher fan & have thoroughly enjoyed the Kerry Greenwood books after being introduced to Phryne via the TV series. Regretfully I did not enjoy this book at all. It is a bit light on the mystery, but that usually does not detract much as Kerry's descriptions and Australian history makes the Phyrne books so enjoyable. However this book depended largely on an ongoing orgy-light to carry parts of the plot along and the descriptions of same were just too squirm-inducing for me to enjoy. I'm no prude, but I felt the sexual situations (much more content than a usual Phryne story) were really too graphic and constant to make this book enjoyable. This one is being returned.
Oh, and there's LOTS of singing in this one.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
