The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honourable Phryne Fisher-she of the green-gray eyes, diamant garters, and outfits that should not be sprung suddenly on those of nervous dispositions-is rapidly tiring of the tedium of arranging flowers, making polite conversations with retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men. Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne, Australia. Almost immediately from the time she arrives, Phryne is embroiled in mystery: poisoned wives, cocaine smuggling rings, corrupt cops, and communism-not to mention erotic encounters with a beautiful Russian dancer-until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

Kerry Greenwood has written 38 novels and six non-fiction books and has won numerous awards in Australia, where she lives and writes. Cocaine Blues is the first in her Phryne Fisher series, now up to 15 titles and growing.

"--The Australian""The tricky plot, lively writing, likable flapper sleuth, and superb sense of period will delight readers who have already read (or will be motivated to seek) later books in the series already issued by Poisoned Pen." --"Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine" "This series is the best Australian import since Nicole Kidman, and Phryne is the flashiest new female sleuth in the genre." --"Booklist" starred review of "Away with the Fairies" "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." --Publishers Weekly "With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre."
