Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight ought to be enough excitement for most people, but not Phryne Fisher, amateur detective, woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.
In this, the second Phryne Fisher mystery, the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher, handling a murder, a kidnapping and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease―and all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she's flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges or saving a child from kidnapping, she handles everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.

Stephanie Daniel's narrations of Kerry Greenwood's Australian mysteries are such delicious pleasure one worries that listening to them will pile on the pounds. Have no fear. Hearing Phryne Fisher's adventures in 1920s Melbourne is calorie free and as satisfying as high tea followed by a champagne dinner. The plot involves a kidnapped child, a murder, and Phryne doing some airplane wing-walking as well as mystery solving. Daniel's own Australian accent is light and easy; her voice is a pleasurable alto during the narrative sections, and in between she offers a wealth of character portrayals. Everyone from Phryne, an upper-crust Brit, to little children, to Australian good old boys is believable--and a joy to spend time with. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
