9781464207686: Raisins and Almonds (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries)

Phryne Fisher loves dancing, especially with gorgeous young Simon Abrahams. But Phryne's contentment at the Jewish Young People's Society Dance is cut short when Simon's father asks her to investigate the strange death of a devout young student in Miss Sylvia Lee's East Market bookshop.


Miss Lee has been arrested for the murder, and Phryne believes that she is a very unlikely killer. Investigation leads her into the exotic world of Yiddish, refugees, rabbis, kosher dinners, Kadimah, strange alchemical symbols, and chicken soup.


With help from the old faithfuls Bert and Cec, her taxi driver friends; her devoted companion Dot; and Detective Inspector "Call me Jack" Robinson, Phryne picks her way through the mystery. She soon finds herself at the heart of a situation far graver and more political than she at first appreciates.


And all for the price of a song....

From AudioFile:

A Phryne Fisher mystery, set in 1920s Australia, is as delicious and indulgent as a box of bonbons and a glass of champagne. Happily, the series has long been read by Stephanie Daniel, who does a marvelous job with the series' insouciant mix of sex, silliness, and drama. She has the many voices and the pacing--as quick and light as a dance--and she's clearly having fun. In this installment, when a Jewish immigrant drops dead of poisoning in Phryne's favorite bookstore, Phryne asks her new young paramour, Simon Abraham, to introduce her to Melbourne's Jewish community. Strains of a foxtrot put you in the mood for a plot involving Jewish politics, alchemy, good food, and delicious love. A.C.S. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
