READ AN EXCERPT:
Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first in the Phryne Fisher series written by Kerry Greenwood and published by Poisoned Pen.
Phryne is a wealthy heiress with a talent for solving crimes. Bored with polite English society, Phryne heads to Australia to see about a woman that could be a poisoning victim. Phryne plans to stay in Australia and start her own private detective business.
This first case Phryne is chasing after a hack abortionist, a cocaine ring and of course, trying to find out if her friend's daughter is being poisoned.
Set during the 1920's, the sharp dialogue, excellent descriptions, and a fast moving story with a shocking outcome left me wishing for more.
Very impressed with this one.

For fun Kerry reads science fiction/fantasy and detective stories. She is not married, has no children and lives with a registered wizard. When she is not doing any of the above she stares blankly out of the window.
