    ITEM#: 10143897

    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 twenty novels, 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 sixteen 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.

    The fabulous Phryne Fisher, her sister Beth and her faithful maid, Dot, decide that Luna Park is the perfect place for an afternoon of fun and excitement with Phryne's two daughters, Ruth and Jane. But in the dusty dark Ghost Train, amidst the squeals of horror and delight, a mummified bullet-studded corpse falls to the ground in front of them. Phryne Fisher's pleasure trip has definitely become business. Digging into this longstanding mystery takes her to the country town of Castlemaine where it's soon obvious that someone is trying to muzzle her investigations. With unknown threatening assailants on her path, Phryne seems headed for more trouble than usual.... ""Greenwood weaves historical data into the plot like gold thread, giving it richness without weighing it down. -Booklist ""An unforgettable character, with a heart as big as her pocket-book, a fine disregard for convention and an insatiable appetite for life."" -Denver Post ""Appealing characters and witty banter...an enjoyable caper.""- Publishers Weekly Kerry Greenwood is the author of more than 40 novels and the recipient of the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Crime Writers' Association of Australia. www.phrynefisher.com -Publishers Weekly

      Phryne Fisher has a new fan. I love her flapper mentality, and her ability to come to her own rescue. Ms. Greenwood mixes history, romance, and adventure, with a side of comedy to keep everything light but not frothy. I escaped my day and learned a little bit more of Australia's history. I want to be Phryne Fisher!

      Kerry Greenwod has such a crisp, specific, style. Her prose reminds me of the way the ice sounds in the martini shaker! Australia in the early part of the last century is a place I know nothing about. It is so refreshing to learn a little through the fun, yet serious, vehicle of Kerry Greenwood's books.
