Read full description of the books:
Who poisoned the foreign student? Was it the owner of the bookstore where he died? His Zionist connections? The unknown person he was leaving a message for? The person he wanted to buy guns from? The vanished carter? Who?!
But hey, gotcha! In fact there are like no suspects. Greenwood spends most of the book telling you about Zionism and Jewish migration and mysticism and Phryne's clothes. Really most of the stuff you learn in the book is irrelevant to the mystery. I was kind of bored by the mini-lectures and did not entirely care for her depiction of Jews, which was positive but full of stereotypes.
And poor detective Jack Robinson -- his character seems to get rewritten in every book. I didn't find it believable that he would have charged Miss Lee for basically no reason, making up such a groundless explanation to cast her as the murderer. It made no sense and didn't fit how intelligent and open-minded he was in some of the other books.
Not terrible, but my least favorite of the series.

Read information about the authorKerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray and after wandering far and wide, she returned to live there. She has a degree in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st April 1982, a day which she finds both soothing and significant.
Kerry has written twenty novels, a number of plays, including The Troubadours with Stephen D'Arcy, is an award-winning children's writer and has edited and contributed to several anthologies. In 1996 she published a book of essays on female murderers called Things She Loves: Why women Kill.
The Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) began in 1989 with Cocaine Blues which was a great success. Kerry has written thirteen books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol. Kerry says that as long as people want to read them, she can keep writing them.
Kerry Greenwood has worked as a folk singer, factory hand, director, producer, translator, costume-maker, cook and is currently a solicitor. When she is not writing, she works as a locum solicitor for the Victorian Legal Aid. She is also the unpaid curator of seven thousand books, three cats (Attila, Belladonna and Ashe) and a computer called Apple (which squeaks). She embroiders very well but cannot knit. She has flown planes and leapt out of them (with a parachute) in an attempt to cure her fear of heights (she is now terrified of jumping out of planes but can climb ladders without fear). She can detect second-hand bookshops from blocks away and is often found within them.
For fun Kerry reads science fiction/fantasy and detective stories. She is not married, has no children and lives with a registered wizard. When she is not doing any of the above she stares blankly out of the window.
