Praise for the Phryne Fisher series...

"The best Australian import since Nicole Kidman...."
-Booklist starred review of Away with the Fairies
The nice men at P&O are worried. A succession of jewelry thefts from the first-class passengers is hardly the best advertisement for their cruises. Especially when it is likely that a passenger is the thief.
Phryne Fisher, with her Lulu bob, green eyes, cupid's bow lips, and sense of the ends justifying the means, is just the person to mingle seamlessly with the upper classes and take on a case of theft on the high seas-or at least on the S.S. Hinemoa-on a luxury cruise to New Zealand. She is carrying the Great Queen of Sapphires, the Maharani, as bait.
There are shipboard romances, champagne cocktails, erotic photographers, jealous swains, mickey finns, jazz musicians, blackmail, and attempted murder, all before the thieves find out-as have countless love-smitten men before them-that where the glamorous and intelligent Phryne is concerned, resistance is futile.
Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray. Winner of the 2003 Crime Writers' Association of Australia Lifetime Achievement Award, Kerry has written more than 40 novels. She has written seventeen books in the Phryne Fisher series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol.
