Praise for Murder on the Ballarat Train
"Phryne Fisher brings her usual insight, pluck and style to...Murder on the Ballarat Train. Greenwood effortlessly matches her irresistible heroine with a compelling plot."
-Publishers Weekly
"Greenwood's stories are brief, but she holds her own, writing well-thought-out plots starring the intelligent, sexy, liberated, and wealthy Phryne." -Library Journal
When the 1920s' most glamorous lady detective, the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, arranges to go to Ballarat for the week, she eschews the excitement of her red Hispano-Suiza racing car for the sedate safety of the train. The last thing she expects is to have to use her trusty Beretta .32 to save the passengers' lives. As they sleep, they are poisoned with chloroform.
Phryne is left to piece together the clues after this restful country sojourn turns into the stuff of nightmares with a young girl who can't remember anything, rumors of white slavery and black magic, and the body of an old woman missing her emerald rings. Then there is the rowing team and the choristers, all deliciously engaging young men. At first they seem like a pleasant diversion....
The prolific Kerry Greenwood is the author of more than 40 books. Among her many honors, she has received the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Australia.

  • always fun to travel with Phryne

    by on

    Murder on the Ballarat Train is Kerry Greenwoods third installment in the popular Phryne Fisher series. Ms Greenwood has Phryne dealing with, in her inimitable fashion, matters as diverse as chloroform poisoning, amnesic victims of the child sex trade, kidnapping, mesmerism and murder. Bert and Cec make a useful appearance, and Dot and the Butlers play their usual dependable roles. Phryne takes a youthful lover, adopts two young girls and still manages to solve the cases of amnesia, kidnapping and murder before the week is out. Phrynes train trip may not have been too pleasant, but your journey with her in this novel is guaranteed to be very enjoyable.
