Publisher's Summary

In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison, and chicken soup. Stopping only for a brief but intensely erotic dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls: Bert, Cec, Dot, and Detective Inspector "Call Me Jack" Robinson. But ultimately it is her stealth and wit that solve the crime - and all for the price of a song....
Solve another case with Phryne Fisher.

Clever as always, Miss Fisher.

Now that was lovely. Clever, a bit steamy, and always in fashion. I liked the addition of the Yiddish to the book; it gave it an air of authenticity. Also, you will adore Simon's mother.

Great Auzzie Story

If you could sum up Raisins and Almonds in three words, what would they be?

An exciting, gripping yarn. Loved this story, was introduced to Phryne Fisher through the Australian Television network and was a little worried that the audible would not.match up to the audible, not the case. Stephanie Daniel's narrated it wonderfully .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Raisins and Almonds?

Loved Dot's continuing innocence and the exploration of Jewish culture, found this really interesting and looking at the perceptions of finding a Jewish state from a 1920's Jewish perspective.
Greenwood weaver this into the story and for me added further interest into the mystery.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Loved the scene with the scientist's house where the mystery finally unfolds, found it funny as well as exciting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Greenwood weaves humour, sadness and excitement throughout the book, just loved it!
