The sparkling repartee blazes, the action is heartracing, the humour is everything and more.  And the unspoken romantic tension the series built between Jack and Phryne is no longer unspoken!

Well, congrats to Kerry Greenwood, and the cast! Glad to see they're doing 
so well. (I'm still not happy that they removed Lin Chung from the 
televised/filmed stories, though.)

Has anyone seen the 1960s update of this series: Ms. Fisher's Modern 
Murder Mysteries? I picked up the DVD of Series 1 from my library and 
watched the first episode - a bit on the "cute" side but lots of energy,
and I appreciated the number of strong women in the cast.

If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
