Available on: Amazon, Audible, and Barnes and Noble.

Overview:

Blurb: When she finds herself rather bored with hum-drum England, the Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher decides to jump ship, a bit literally, to return to her homeland: Australia.

And then she finds a couple of communists, a few new and one old enemy, and nearly gets herself slightly murdered for being just a little curious about the king of cocaine in Melbourne. It’s the first book in a series and one I desperately wish to continue reading.
