Death at Victoria Dock

A Phryne Fisher Mystery

by Kerry Greenwood

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/01/2008

 
Driving home late one night, Phryne Fisher is surprised when someone shoots out her windscreen. She alights to finds a pretty young man with an anarchist tattoo dying on the tarmac just outside the dock gates. He bleeds to death in her arms...and all over her silk shirt.
Enraged by the loss of the clothing, the damage to her car, and this senseless waste of human life, Phryne promises to find out who is responsible. But she doesn't yet know how deeply into the mire she'll have to go: bank robbery, tattoo parlours, pubs, spiritualist halls and Anarchists. Then when someone kidnaps her cherished companion, Dot, Phryne will stop at nothing to retrieve her.

Praise for Death at Victoria Dock
"A fresh time period and location, a feisty main character, and a well-developed sense of place distinguish this historical mystery series." -Booklist
"In a mere handful of pages [Greenwood] manages to evoke the decadent Twenties, give us some insight into the Communist and anarchist scene in those days, solve two thrilling cases and even slot in some dry Aussie humor." -myshelf.com
