About the Author

Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray and after wandering far and wide, she returned to live there. She has degrees in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st April 1982, a day which she finds both soothing and significant. Kerry has written three series, a number of plays, including The Troubadours with Stephen D'Arcy, is an award-winning children's writer and has edited and contributed to several anthologies. The Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) began in 1989 with Cocaine Blues which was a great success. Kerry has written twenty books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol. Kerry says that as long as people want to read them, she can keep writing them. In 2003 Kerry won the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Australian Association.

Reviews

The feisty flapper goes undercover in a sabotaged circus in her 11th Australian caper. Greenwood lives Down Under. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Australian author Greenwood?s light-hearted Phryne Fisher mystery, the sixth chronologically and 11th to be published in the U.S. (after 2006?s Murder in the Dark), isn?t one of the series high points. Flapper sleuth Fisher goes undercover in a circus after Alan Lee, a former love interest, asks for her help identifying the person or persons behind a series of attacks connected to the circus, which culmi-nate in the murder of company member Mr. Christopher. Fisher and Det. Insp. Jack Robinson must ferret out the information needed to keep Miss Parkes from being hanged as the killer. Fisher?s loyal retinue, who served her well in other exploits, play less of a role this time. The writing is less humorous than in some of Greenwood?s other Fisher books, and the far-fetched solution may leave fans disappointed. (July) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
