The Lady with the Gun Asks the Questions: The Ultimate Miss Phryne Fisher Story Collection (Phryne Fisher Mysteries) (Paperback)
"With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre." —The Australian
"The 15 1920s-era stories in this welcome collection from Australian author Greenwood will delight fans of Miss Phryne Fisher, who indulges in 'Sherlockery' for Melbourne's citizenry when she's not indulging her passion for 'food, sleep, intellectual puzzles, clothes and beautiful young men'...This volume is a fine companion to the 21 novels featuring this dashing protagonist." —Publishers Weekly
In The Lady with Gun Asks the Questions, Kerry Greenwood distills the Phryne of her books and imagination. For those fans looking for greater character depth, a richer historical context of the twenties, and Phryne as her truest, freest self, Greenwood has curated just the right stories from her 21 novels and added four brand-new ones so we may meet the real fabulous Miss Fisher.
This Ultimate Miss Fisher Story Collection features four previously unpublished stories:
- The Boxer
- A Matter of Style
- The Chocolate Factory
- The Bells of St. Paul's
"As always, the star of the show isn't the crime; it's Phryne herself. She's outspoken, bawdy, streetwise, elegant, and absolutely impossible not to love. Fans of the long-running Fisher series or its television adaptation will really enjoy these bite-size adventures." — Booklist
