The Honourable Phryne Fisher - she of the Lulu bob, Cupid's bow lips, diamante garters and pearl-handled pistol - is the 1920s' most elegant and irrepressible sleuth.

Miss Phryne Fisher is up to her stunning green eyes in intriguing crime in each of these entertaining, fun and compulsively readable stories. With the ever-loyal Dot, the ingenious Mr Butler and all of Phryne's friends and household, the action is as fast as Phryne's wit and logic.

'With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre.' The Australian

excellent little doses of a favourite Aussie investigator.
The Lady With The Gun Asks The Questions is a collection of seventeen short stories of varying length in the Phryne Fisher series by Australian author, Kerry Greenwood. Thirteen of the stories have been published previously (A Question of Death, 2007) and are presented here with some minor alterations; four stories are new. In her introduction, Greenwood tells how Phryne came to be, and the writing process she follows with these novels. In these stories, the inimitable Phryne: helps a distraught Australian wife in Paris; at one of her exclusive soirees, Death attends thrice; Phryne avenges a badly-done-by secretary, restores Collingwood’s chances at an important match, retrieves purloined pearls for a good cause, uncovers a brothel, gambles for an important locket, riddles with a book thief, assists in a case of a half-burnt house with four dead bodies, foils a two-legged snake at the circus, and helps prove the innocence of a confessor to a murder. Christmas in June turns deadly for a blackmailer; a playboy meets a deserving end; Phryne receives a marriage proposal; a missing granddaughter is found and not returned; theft of client valuables from a hair salon is investigated; the saboteur of hand-made chocolates is revealed; and church bells ring in code to aid true love. In addition to the Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher and the regular cast of the novels, featured in these stories, set in Paris, Melbourne, and Hobart, are an Archbishop, a temperance lecturer, a well-intentioned MP, a nasty retired General, a Hungarian poet, a loyal hound, a troupe of carnies, a smuggler, a madrigal choir, a loathsome grandmother, a mad doctor, a bombastic MP’s wife and a former tent boxer. Greenwood includes a handy glossary of 1920s terms, but absent from this edition are the lavish and charming colour illustrations by Beth Norling, the Interview with Phryne Fisher, her tips on discouraging overenthusiastic suitors, and the recipes for cocktails, cakes and some sumptuous dishes that graced the earlier edition. Fans can decide if the four new stories are sufficient compensation. These are excellent little doses of a favourite Aussie investigator.
