9781743107553: Death Before Wicket (Phryne Fisher Mysteries (Audio))

Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn―a few days at the Test cricket, a little sightseeing and the Artist’s Ball with an up-and-coming young modernist. But these plans begin to go awry when Phryne’s maid discovers her thoroughly respectable sister has left her family for the murky nightlife of the Cross. And Phryne is definitely not the woman to say "no" when two delightful young men come to her on bended 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 Phryne finds herself enmeshed in blackmail, secrets, lies and the dangerous influences of deep magic.

From AudioFile:

Phyrne Fisher has solved quite a few mysteries during her career. Here a holiday trip to Sydney is just what she needs for some R&R. But when her personal maid's sister goes missing and she agrees to defend a young man for theft, she finds herself smack-dab in the midst of black magic, deceit, violence, and murder. Stephanie Daniel proves to be Phyrne's equal. Daniel's narration reveals an intelligent woman, always on par with any male counterpart. The colorful characters, whether professors or men of the underworld, are portrayed impeccably. Clever, witty, and filled with gusto, Greenwood's novel, as delivered by Daniel, is an exciting whodunit. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
