Away With The Fairies - Cassette


4 Cassettes.
Read by Julia Davis.

Back in Melbourne after the rigours of Sydney in 'Death Before Wicket', Phryne is asked to investigate the puzzling death of a famous author and illustrator of fairy stories. To do so Phryne takes a job within the women's magazine that employed the victim and finds herself enmeshed in her colleagues' deceptions.

But while Phryne is learning the ins and outs of magazine publishing first hand, her personal life is thrown into chaos. Impatient for Lin Chung, her lover, to return from a silk-buying expedition to China, she instead receives an unusual summons from Lin Chung's family and a macabre "present" from his kidnappers.

She's not waiting to receive another gift like that. Phryne and her faithful team tackle the dangerous docks of Melbourne to learn all they can about pirates and silk.

This Phryne Fisher mystery is rich in history and enticing twenties fashion, combining the best of fascinating plots, detailed period research, and one of the most exciting and likable series characters in Australian crime writing.
