Death Before Wicket: Miss Phryne Fisher Investigates - Phryne Fisher (Paperback)Kerry Greenwood (author)
- In stock
Abduction, intrigue and death - it's just not cricket!
Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn - a few days at the Test match, 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 city's seamier side. And Phryne is definitely not the woman to say no when two delightful and handsome men come to her on bended knees, begging for her help in finding their friend innocent of theft.
All in all, Phryne's plans for a simple day or two of pleasure watching young men in white are postponed for good!

Phryne Fisher is gutsy and adventurous, and also well endowed with plenty of grey matter. She has it over Robicheaux and Poirot because she's drop-dead gorgeous. * West Australian *
Greenwood's strength lies in her ability to create characters that are wholly satisfying: the bad guys are bad, and the good guys are great * Vogue *
