A look at the 1920s with Phryne Fisher as she goes to Australia and begins her career as a private detective. She meets Bert and Cec, the taxi and van drivers who take her to the Windsor Hotel, and who become helpers in her case of the abortionist. She hires Dot as her maid when she helps Dot attain her revenge. And she establishes herself with the police when she ...

Great supporting characters. At times I would like a dictionary of English and Australian slang. ( )

I liked this a lot. I actually saw the tv series first which is not the normal order of things. But I didn't know these were books first. Very enjoyable, although a bit different from the tv. I don't know how historically accurate these are, but I really don't care. ( )

Satisfactory mystery with a sassy heroine. ( )

My husband and I just recently discovered the TV series, “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries,” and have been enjoying them immensely, so when my sister-in-law said the books are even better, I dashed off to start the series in e-book form. The nice thing about that way of discovering a series is that one might have many, many books to read before getting all caught up; in this case, some 21 are or will be on offer. This first, “Cocaine Blues,” serves mainly to introduce us to our characters: Phryne Fisher, the once-poor but now very, very rich young scion of British aristocracy; her maid Dot; taxi drivers Burt and Cec; Detective Inspector Robinson; the fierce Dr. Elizabeth McMillan, and many more. Set in 1920s Melbourne, Australia, Phryne is a very, *very* modern woman, taking lovers as she pleases while keeping her heart to herself, dressing exquisitely (and described in detail), and in her spare time solving murders and other crimes; delicious! I read this first book in just over one sitting (finished the last half hour the next morning) and have already bought books 2 and 3 in the series. Smashing stuff, and just what’s needed to get through a dreary, curfewed and quarantined Covid winter! ( )

The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher has gotten tired of the London social set and takes off for Australia to look into the marital troubles of the daughter of one of her dinner party seatmates. She books into the exclusive Windsor Hotel and is soon deep into a number of mysteries.

Phryne traveled to Australia with a female doctor named Doctor Elizabeth McMillan who is taking over a women's hospital. The doctor is very useful to her in her investigations. Phryne also hires a young woman named Dorothy Bryant as her lady's maid who has just been let go from her job as a housemaid after she rejected the attempts of the son of the house to seduce her.

Between searching for an abortionist whose most recent victim is a patient at Dr. McMillan's hospital, she also gets involved with some Russian dancers who are trying to bust a cocaine ring because their mother died from cocaine usage. Not to mention her investigation of Lydia Andrews to discover if her husband is really trying to kill her.

The setting is well done. Australia at the end of the 1920s is fully realized. Phryne is a great character who is quite an original. She's daring, smart, brave and not at all the usual sort of young woman. I enjoyed the audio of this story and thought Stephanie Daniel did a great job with all the accents. ( )
