The Lady with the Gun asks the questions - Kerry Greenwood

A collection of short stories, all involving Phyrne Fisher the sassy, society beauty of vintage Melbourne fame who through sheer intelligence and wonderful detective skills in very short time solves the most vexatious problem Seventeen short stories which I read of an evening as each one was better than the one that went before. Different settings, different people of different walks of life. Phyrne though rich and famous never looked down her nose on the poor or the downtrodden. These stories were so good I just loved the lot. Set in Melbourne of the 1920s in itself something unique, this feisty female character will be loved by any person who loves the detective genre.

I read the first book in this series years ago but somehow never continued. I really liked Phyrne and need to get back to this one. This sounds fun!
