Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood

Cocaine Blues - Kerry Greenwood

Series: Phryne Fisher # 1


A light but fun read. I quite liked Phryne. The dance description at the first dinner seemed a bit superfluous and some of the chronology regarding Robert Matthews, for example, seemed a bit rushed, unless I misread it. He’s already established himself when Phryne gets to Australia and weren’t they just in England together? Anyway, even with a few details like that and some looseness in the actual mystery unfolding, it was an enjoyable read albeit with room for improvement. I’ll be picking up the next one (since the library has it).
