Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

The growing American audience for Phryne Fisher, Australian author Greenwood's independent 1920s female sleuth, will be delighted that her diverting first mystery is finally available in the U.S. Fisher's off-the-cuff solving of a high society jewel theft leads her to her first professional engagement when a witness to her brilliance asks her to investigate a possible poisoning-in-progress. The detective's admirable willingness to intervene to help those in distress involves her in a variety of other puzzles, including identifying the King of Snow, who has taken over the Melbourne drug trade. Many of the members of Fisher's entourage familiar from later novels make their debuts as well.

Booklist

Australian Greenwood has been exporting her outstanding Phryne Fisher series to the U.S. for the past several years, but the books haven't arrived in chronological order. Finally, we have the series debut, which explains how the irrepressible flapper (the series is set in the 1920s) became a detective. Phryne fans will relish the chance to see how beloved characters like Bert, Cec, Dot, and Inspector Robinson wandered into Phryne's life, and newcomers will enjoy getting to know ultrafashionable Phryne, who's wealthy enough to do whatever she wants but whose previous poverty has created a strong empathy for the working class. In Melbourne to investigate the mysterious illness of the daughter of a family friend, Phryne stumbles into a case involving two of the 1920s' signature evils: cocaine and back-alley abortions. Banding together with a crew of colorful local characters, and finding time to indulge in some erotic fun with a sexy Russian dancer, Phryne soon leaves her mark on Melbourne. From beginning to end, Greenwood infuses her series with evocative settings, multidimensional characters, and satisfying mysteries. Jenny McLarin

Ne trouvant pas le premier ouvrage des aventures de Miss Fisher en français alors qu'autrefois édité par 10-18, je me suis laissée convaincre d'acheter le roman en anglais (sympa qu'Amazon le permette). Il se lit facilement même pour un anglophone niveau intermédiaire, la couverture est splendide et bien que l'histoire diffère sur certains points par rapport à l'adaptation télévisuelle, on devient vite accro !

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A heroine who keeps her cool 3 février 2014
Par Lol S
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Phryne Fisher is a modern girl of the Twenties. She has wealth but remembers poverty. She has nerve, skill, and daring. Here she has to travel back to her native Australia to try to find out why the daughter of an acquaintance seems to be suffering at the hands of her husband - possibly being poisoned. There are jewels, drugs, lithe Russian dancers, fast cars, and high society. There are also back-street abortionists and attempted murders; and Phryne acquires a new maid and a pair of taxi drivers to assist her in sleuthing as well as domestic matters.
Great fun, and I'll definitely read more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Très bon livre 7 octobre 2013
Par Marie

C'est une excellente façon de se mettre à l'anglais. J'ai souvent eu recours au dictionnaire et l'histoire en vaut la peine. Il s'agit de celle de Miss Phryne Fisher dont le père a hérité d'un titre de noblesse en même temps que d'une grosse fortune. La vie sociale de la haute société l'ennuie profondément et elle choisit de retourner à Melbourne en Australie à la demande du Colonel Andrews et sa femme qui craignent que leur fille soit empoisonnée par son mari.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a great start to a fantastic series 12 janvier 2006
Par E Rice - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
cocaine blues, published first in the country as _death by misadventure_, is the first mystery to feature phyrne fisher, australian born daughter of a remittance man, english educated once her father inherits the title and millions, who is asked by a set of parents to investigate the apparent murder attempts against their daughter, who is in australia.

of course, phyrne accepts and returns to the land of her childhood. it is 1928, and one of the many charms of this series is the picture of australia just after the great war. we also get to enjoy the fashions in dress, food, and cars, and wince at the some of the social mores.

phyrne rapidly solves the mystery in the style of the golden age of mystery writing, fitting for the time this is set.

our heroine is definitely her own woman. she is independent, competent, intelligent, remembers the lessons of childhood poverty and enjoys wielding her adult money and title.

the only drawback to the first three in this series is that they are comparatively short. the plots are first rate, the descriptions well done, the characterizations accurate and even pungent. there is also humor of every kind.

this is a mystery and a series not to be missed by any reader who wants a well-written, exciting read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely delightful! 27 juin 2005
Par L. J. Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Phryne, pronounced Fry-knee to rhyme with briny, is a wonderful character. She's independent, smart, talented, stylish, and knows both poverty and wealth. This is someone you'd love to know. The story is both light and humorous but deals with serious subjects. The writing is intelligent, clever and in keeping with the period. There are now 15 books in the series and you can believe I'm going to try to find them all.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 TV Series is Better 11 mai 2013
Par Melinda Burnett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well, here's something that those who know me would never expect to pass my lips: The TV series is better.

We started watching the excellent Australian TV series on the Acorn channel thinggy we have have via Roku. I ain't hatin' but Essie Davis simply burns up the screen as Phryne Fisher. I mean to say, she absolutely sizzles.

I'm always in the market for a good mystery series, so naturally I looked it up. Amazon has the first book (this one) available for free, I immediately downloaded it. Let's just put it kindly: the screenwriters did the old chop-chop to the book. Only in this case, by making it nearly unrecognizeable, they vastly improved it.

Now I understand that the first book in any series is usually the weakest, but this one is so weak, it just had me scratching my head. Childishly written, annoying characters (who were outstanding on the series, btw), and honestly, kind of a stupid plot (again, much improved on by the televised series). The "action" parts were dull and boring, and Phryne, instead of being the crackerjack she was on TV, seemed to flounder. I was relieved to finish the book up, since I am one of those readers who, once started, feels obligated to finish.

Maybe the book series improves as it goes along, but I'm just not going to take that chance. Treat yourself to an awesome TV series, but spare yourself the books. There, I said it, and now I'm going to go wash my mouth out with soap and find a good book to take the taste away....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Delectable and Divine Detective - the Hon Phryne Fisher 26 juillet 2012
Par Suncoast - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The Hon Phryne Fisher is a unique, beautiful, stylish, sexy and larger than life character who romps through adventure after adventure in Melbourne in 1928 and 1929. The descriptions of the time, fashions and the place are accurate and delightful.

The series has recently been released on Kindle in the U.S. so I am posting this review to encourage Americans to read this classic and addictive series.

Let me start by telling you something about Phryne (pronounced Fry-knee). She was born in Melbourne to impoverished descendants of an aristocratic and wealthy UK family. "I was born in very poor circumstances. Bitterly poor. Then (due to the Great War) several people died and I was whisked away into fashion and wealth. I enjoy it greatly." But Phryne was not content to live a life of wealth and luxury in England - she wanted action in her life and spent time in the seedy parts of Paris before heading back from England to Australia to help a family friend.

In the first book in the series we see her arrive in Melbourne and immediately assert her independence. Within hours of arrival she connects with a couple of taxi drivers who become her long time helpers, books into the Hotel Windsor with dozens of trunks full of the latest fashion, and goes out looking for more fashion. There she meets and helps a distraught young woman, Dorothy, planning to kill her employer's lecherous son with a kitchen knife. After cleverly helping Dorothy to embarrass the son without any injury, she asks her to become her maid. Dorothy quickly becomes Phryne's maid, personal assistant and close confident throughout the series.

Phryne then starts her many adventures and investigations. While set in the 1920's, Phryne is a very modern heroine who is always the centre of attention, relishes every one of life's moments and leaves a trail of satisfied lovers in her wake.

While much of Cocaine Blues is character development and scene setting, she starts her career as a private detective by tracking down the king of cocaine in Melbourne, a backstreet abortionist and a poisoner. In the course of her investigations she meets Detective Inspector Jack Robinson, who is intially suspicious of her activities but later on gains great respect for Thryne's skills and helps her with many investigations.

WARNING - Phryne Fisher books are addictive. When you have read one, you will want to read more. In her next books she adds to her delightful "family" of helpers by setting up house (with housekeepers, cat and dog etc), extends her network of police contacts and satisfied lovers and even rescues 2 teenage children from white slavery and adopts them. Please read on.....

3.0 étoiles sur 5 total Mary Sue, but fun 2 mai 2011
Par C. Andrews Schlemmer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Phryne is pure wish fulfillment. The character can eat everything but stay slim and perfect as a model, never sweat from exercise but stay strong and lean, spend all the money she wants and never run out, have lots of lots of great sex without physical or emotional consequences, read and speak in many languages, drive and fly at high speed without accident, outsmart any opponent, always show perfect taste, deliver the subtle conversational riposte at exactly the right moment . . . .
But who wouldn't like a little wish fulfillment now and then? Even though I am more fond of characters with a few human flaws, it works for James Bond, so why not Phryne Fisher?
