The 1920s' most elegant and irrepressible sleuth returns.

A very young man with muddied hair, a pierced ear and a blue tattoo lies cradled in Phryne's arms. But sadly it's not another scene of glorious seduction - this time it's death. The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, beautifully dressed in loose trousers, a cream silk shirt and a red-fox fur has just had her windscreen shot out inches in front of her divine nose. But worse is the fate of the pale young man lying on the road, his body hit by bullets, who draws his final blood-filled breath with Phryne at his side. Outraged by this brutal slaughter, Phryne promises to find out who is responsible. But Phryne doesn't yet know how deeply into the mire she'll have to go - bank robbery, tattoo parlours, pubs, spiritualist halls and the Anarchists. Along this path, Phryne meets Peter, a battle-scarred, sexy Slav, who offers much more to her than just information. But all thoughts of these delights flee from Phryne's mind when her beloved maid, Dot, disappears. There's nothing Phryne won't do to get her back safely.

"The glamorous, indestructible Australian flapper Phryne Fisher avenges the death of a young man who dies in her arms after she and her car are shot at by two men. Although Phryne and members of her household are in danger from anarchists, they manage to foil a bank robbery while also solving the case of a missing young girl. The always well-dressed, fearless Phryne can take care of herself, enjoys her sexuality, and is a woman ahead of her times in the Australia of the late 1920s. She is supported in her adventurous lifestyle by her maid and companion, Dot, and by Mr and Mrs. Butler, who run her household while asking no questions. A fresh time period and location, a feisty main character, and a well-developed sense of place distinguish this historical mystery series."
Booklist

"When a gunshot shatters the windshield of Phryne Fisher, Greenwood's unflappable proto-feminist detective, at the start of the latest entry in this long-running 1920s Australian series, Fisher investigates and finds that the intended target, a young Slavic man, has been fatally wounded. Outraged, Fisher takes it upon herself to bring the killers to justice, entering a complex world of Russian anarchists, who may be linked to the survivors of London's legendary Sidney Street siege. Those who like their heroines resourceful and their mystery plots leavened with humor will read this with pleasure."
Publishers Weekly

"Death at Victoria Dock is the unabridged audiobook adaptation of the fourth mystery following the brilliant and seductive Phryne Fisher. When a young man with a pierced ear and blue tattoo dies in front of her, she vows to uncover who killed him and why – a search that will take her to tattoo parlours, pubs, spiritualist halls, meetings with Anarchists, and more. A tangled web of intrigue unfolds in this extraordinary mystery. Smoothly narrated by expert actress Stephanie Daniel, Death at Victoria Dock is a treat for fans of the genre, and highly recommended."
Midwest Book Review

"Greenwood’s flapper heroine, Phrynne (FRYnie) Fisher, is improbable but completely delightful, especially in the elegant performance of Stephanie Daniel, a master of the sophisticated deadpan delivery that makes this P.G. Wodehouse-style of comedy work. The setup: Phrynne is driving her Hispano Suiza past Victoria Dock one night when her windshield explodes. Two fleeing thugs fire more shots at her, and she finds a very beautiful young man dying of bullet wounds. This annoys her greatly as there are too few beautiful young men in the world as it is. She assembles her team of orphaned wards, freelance enforcers, and devoted staff and all too soon has sorted out a nest of murderous anarchists and solved an unrelated kidnapping along the way. Wildly entertaining."
