(The seventh book in the Phryne Fisher series)

Oct 18, 2016

This is the only Phryne episode I'd rate with only 3 stars, and that is because nearly the whole book has to do with the plot of a Gilbert & Sullivan play, its plot, and who the actors were nearly a century ago in Melbourne, Australia. In fact, the only thing it has to recommend it is that Phryne meets Lin Chung for the first time just before she arrives at the theatre, and if you love the Phryne books you KNOW how important an addition Lin is to the ongoing plots.

This was a tough read for me (not so enjoyable). Fortunately, I'd seen the TV show so had an idea of the plot. Problem was the introduction of so many, many characters that I could not keep them straight in my mind. Plus, I feel it lacked a lot of the Phryne extravagance, impulsiveness and flourishes that are so fun and interesting.

This was an improvement on the last book. I love the different culture elements in her books.

Famous for introducing Lin to the Phryne family, and Bunny too. Not the best of the Phryne books, but then again there's never been a BAD one! Love Lin!
