Flying Too High

A Phryne Fisher Mystery

Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne--amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.

In fact, the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher here, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease. And she does it all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she's flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child, Phryne does everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.

(The second book in the Phryne Fisher series)

The TV show is great and the books are great, each in different ways. I recommend seeing the videos first, then reading the books. One has a picture of the characters (and the clothes) from the TV. Then read the books for the added characters and a variant mystery puzzle. I happily read them a second (or third) time and laugh and laugh.

Phryne as wing-walker! I liked this book. Other comments say they like the PBS shows better, but this is the WHOLE story, not ground down to 60 mins. These stories contain fascinating historical data as well as a very wild tale of this seductive, wealthy fictional flapper.

I agree with kancruze. I liked the PBS shows better than this book.

Another fun Phryne Fisher romp, albeit not quite as engaging as the first. Still a series I intend to follow.

A pleasant romp if you're looking for something quick to read.

Disappointed that I like her shows on PBS better than reading the book.

The second instalment of Miss Fisher's investigations. A quick and enjoyable read.
