If you’ve watched the TV series then you can put faces to most of the names in the book.
Phryne Fisher, our heroine, lives in a sumptuous house
in the seaside suburb of St Kilda, Melbourne. This time slavery and prostitution and bad nuns fill the pages, as well as a kidnapping and piracy on the high seas.
It’s pretty hard to put it down. And if you’re from Melbourne, you can put a picture to the places mentioned.
My favourite saying is – ‘what did you expect, wheels?’
a statement often made by nuns as their habits rose.
