Publisher's Summary

The sassy Phryne Fisher comes to Sydney! This is the 10th Phryne Fisher mystery. Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn, but they begin to go awry when Phryne's maid discovers that her respectable sister Joan has left her family for the murky nightlife on the Cross...and then postponed again because Phyrne is definitely not the woman to say 'no' when two delightful young men are on their knees, begging for her help in finding their friend innocent of theft. It all sounds simple enough as Phryne sets investigations into motion. But when greed and fear are the motivating factors, people become ruthless and Phyrne quickly finds herself enmeshed in blackmail, secrets, lies and the dangerous influences of deep magic.

Bowled Over

I really enjoyed this one it had a different flavor some how it wasn't something I could put my finger on ,maybe it was because this particular tale is set in Sydney instead of Melbourne .We find our beautiful flapper helping out two chums and a missing Egyptian artifact ,a tad far fetched but that didn't bother me ,Ancient Egyptian curses and the gentleman's game of cricket some how are seamlessly merged into a fantastic story.
Only Kerry could pull that off.

Pitch Perfect

What did you love best about Death Before Wicket?

I adore all of Phryne's adventures. Kerry Greenwood is an excellent author and Stephanie Daniel's voice superb - in Death Before Wicket Kerry, Stephanie and Phryne manage to do what I thought in the impossible: make the game of Cricket interesting.<br/>Don't be put off by previous reviewer's comments of Stephanie Daniel having an allegedly poncy accent - she perfectly captures Australian accents of the period. If in doubt, I refer the listener to the australian characters in "The King's Speech" movie.<br/>Give the books a go and you'll be well rewarded.

Most enjoyable, especially if you like cricket. I loved the mention of a promising Donald Bradman!

Production error - there's a 'change CD' prompt

What did you like most about Death Before Wicket?

Production error - there's a 'change CD' prompt right in the middle of an exciting bit :(
