    BOTTOM LINE One of the best of this long series IMO, as we get to meet two people who are going to become very close to Phryne in the future Jane and Ruth Their introduction might have been pure melodrama, but Greenwood only very slowly spins out their odd stories, which resolve in a rather grisly albeit satisfactory manner Almost as contrived as an Edgar Wallace or Sax Rohmer tale, but with Greenwood s nicely light touch the plot just flows along and as long as you can manage to take t BOTTOM LINE One of the best of this long series IMO, as we get to meet two people who are going to become very close to Phryne in the future Jane and Ruth Their introduction might have been pure melodrama, but Greenwood only very slowly spins out their odd stories, which resolve in a rather grisly albeit satisfactory manner Almost as contrived as an Edgar Wallace or Sax Rohmer tale, but with Greenwood s nicely light touch the plot just flows along and as long as you can manage to take the odd proceedings with a grain of salt and just enjoy the fun bits, I think you ll fin...

    Another fun outing with Phryne This one ends with her adopting a couple of girls and goes through a bunch of stuff a crime on a train, hypnotism, murder for an inheritance, mad criminals, etc I m not a fan of stories where the criminal turns out to be insane, even though it s a classic most crime is carried out by sane people, or certainly people whose mental disorders are not central to the deed In fact, in the real world, it scommon for a mentally ill person to be a victim of viole Another fun outing with Phryne This one ends with her adopting a couple of girls and goes through a bunch of stuff a crime on a train, hypnotism, murder for an inheritance, mad criminals, etc I m not a fan of stories where the criminal turns out to be insane, even though it s a classic most crime is carried out by sane people, or certainly people whose mental disorders are not central to the deed In fact, in the real world, it scommon for a mentally ill person to be a victim of violence than the perpetrator It doesn t help that the whole hypnotism thing is a little too convenient the hypnotist can get away with just about anything using hypnotism, here.Still, it s fun, and I love the found family stuff at the end I did predict some turns of the plot, but that s not really what I m reading this fo...

    3.5 stars.The mystery is fun, right up until the murderer comes down with an overwhelming case of becoming a raving maniac when faced with capture by a woman no less.Bert and Cec are great Still getting used to Jack s slightly different role in the books.Really enjoy Jane and Ember.Slightly maternal Dot is great As is the fact that she is the one Phrynne really leans on.Am fine with Phrynne having all the affairs, but the whole college student thing is a bit awkward at times, mostly due to 3.5 stars.The mystery is fun, right up until the murderer comes down with an overwhelming case of becoming a raving maniac when faced with capture by a woman no less.Bert and Cec are great Still getting used to Jack s slightly different role in the books.Really enjoy Jane and Ember.Slightly maternal Dot is great As is the fact that she is the one Phrynne really leans on.Am fine with Phrynne having all the affairs, but the whole college student t...

    Another enjoyable outing with Phryne, and this one starts to really bring together her found family with the addition of Jane and Ruth While I m noticing some inconsistencies in characters that aren t Phryne Dot s surname changes, for example, and apparently the hair colours of Jane and Ruth too , it s still fun and those are only really noticeable because I m reading the books allor less together, in one glorious reread Note this is still an excellent way to consume them, though I m n Another enjoyable outing with Phryne, and this one starts to really bring together her found family with the addition of Jane and Ruth While I m noticing some inconsistencies in characters that aren t Phryne Dot s surname changes, for example, and apparently the hair colours of Jane and Ruth too , it s still fun and those are only really noticeable because I m reading the books allor less together, in one glorious reread Note this is still an excellent way to consume them, though I m now on book seven and...

    Another well written installment and one that I quite enjoyed for the most part Unfortunately, one of the later chapters was decidedly un cozy in tone unsavory men and young, innocent girls and selling them into awful professions but the humanity of Phryne and her friends got to shi...
