I can't believe this is the 18th book in the Phryne Fisher series, not because I've managed to read them all, but because the 18th is just as engaging as the 8th and the 7 before that.

Greenwood's characters are often so interesting that I spend the entire novel hoping they will become repeating characters in the books to come. In this book the gem was a fishboy named Tinker who was so believable I thought he might jump out and say hello.

Setting is of course well done as always, and in this case Phryne leaves the city to vacation on the Australian beach. I mourned Greenwood's description of the seaside when the book was over.

I may wax rhapsodic about Greenwood's work, but to me the facts remain thus: well written, well imagined, well executed, and just plain enjoyable.
