Praise for Ruddy Gore... "The appeal of this story is the glimpse it provides into the 1920s theater world." -Booklist "A comic opera in deft prose," -Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald Running late to a gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, Phryne Fisher meets some thugs in a dark alley and handles them convincingly before they can ruin her silver dress. Phryne then finds that she has rescued the handsome Lin Chung and his grandmother and is briefly mistaken for a deity. Denying divinity but accepting cognac, she later continues safely to the theatre. But the performance is interrupted by a bizarre death onstage. What links can Phryne possibly find between the ridiculously entertaining plot of Ruddigore, the Chinese community of Little Bourke Street, and the actors treading the boards of His Majesty's Theatre? Drawn backstage and onstage, Phryne must solve an old murder, find a new murderer, and of course, banish the theatre's ghost-who seems likely to kill again. Kerry Greenwood, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Australian Crime Writers Association, began her Phryne Fisher series (pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny) in 1989 with Cocaine Blues. She has written eighteen books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol. www.phrynefisher.com
