Phryne Fisher bursts on the mystery scene again in Death at Victoria Docks. I, one of her multitude of fans, am darn glad to see her. Her adventures always make fun and intriguing reads. This one is no exception.

Phryne finds the body of a young man shot to death. Her ire is aroused. Such a waste. As an investigator, she is approached by a distraught father whose fourteen-year-old daughter has run away. Phryne is off and running in her elegant clothes (so beautifully described) and driving her Hispano-Suiza automobile. The time and place is 1928 Melbourne, Australia.

Revolutionary activities, kidnappings, incest, nuns, bullets flying, a bank heist and Phryne's amorous encounters make for another delightful book and an engaging read.
