In this thirteenth Phryne Fisher mystery, Phryne returns with a flourish to solve the most horrifying crime yet which takes her from a funfair ghost train to an abandoned mine in the old gold fields. Phryne Fisher is back-as smart and sassy as ever. Phryne Fisher, her sister Beth and her faithful maid, Dot, decide that Luna Park is the place for an afternoon of fun and excitement with Phryne's two daughters, Ruth and Jane. But in the dusty dark Ghost Train, amidst the squeals of horror and delight, a mummified bullet-studded corpse falls to the ground in front of them. Phryne Fisher's pleasure trip has definitely become business. Digging to the bottom of this longstanding mystery takes her to the country town of Castlemaine where it soon becomes obvious that someone is trying to muzzle her investigations. With unknown threatening assailants on her path, Phryne seems headed for more trouble than usual. Meanwhile, Phryne's lover Lin Chung has his own mystery to solve. Feuding families and lost gold fill his mind until he learns that Phryne herself has become missing treasure. 'Greenwood's prose has a dagger in its garter; her hero is raunchy and promiscuous in the best sense' THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN



AMAZON REVIEWS

5.0 out of 5 stars More excellent Greenwood 24 April 2013
The Castlemaine Murders is the thirteenth book in the popular Phryne Fisher series by Australian author, Kerry Greenwood. On the Ghost Train at Luna Park on a fun day out with her daughters, Phryne accidentally exposes a Cowboy dummy as a mummified, long-dead corpse. As Phryne investigates further, it becomes apparent that someone doesn't want her to discover the corpse's true identity. But why? To complicate matters, Phryne's younger sister, Eliza has arrived without warning from England. Phryne's lover, Lin Chung has his hands full with family matters and is trying to find some stolen Lin family nuggets from the goldfields in the mid-19th century. Their separate investigations lead them to a thrilling climax at Castlemaine. As always, Greenwood has done her research and provides the reader with interesting tidbits about mummification, embalming, tattoos, travelling shows, autopsy, the Victorian gold rush, Chinese blood feuds, gods and the art of negotiation. Letters home from a Chinese coolie add an interesting point of view. In this instalment, Dot is almost run down by a motorcyclist, Phryne's mail is explosive, several venerable old Chinese feature and Phryne is kidnapped (again!!). Characters from previous novels (Death Before Wicket and Blood and Circuses) make an appearance, and the importance of spelling and pronunciation become apparent. More excellent Greenwood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danger for Phryne 8 Mar 2012
Phryne visits Luna Park - imagine Alton Towers in the nineteen twenties - and discovers a body in the ghost train. It is actually a mummified body which could date back to the 1870s. Naturally she is fascinated and starts investigating and soon starts receiving threats.

Her lover, Lin Chung, has managed to settle a feud with another Chinese immigrant family and wants to search for a large quantity of gold which went missing in the area of Castlemaine about the time the body was mummified in the same area. Phryne's sister, Eliza, is staying with her as she has fallen out with their father but they are not getting on too well.

This is an intriguing and well plotted mystery. I found the insight into Chinese customs fascinating and I loved the ways Lin Chung dealt with some of his distant relatives' problems in Castlemaine. I liked the way past and present are linked in the story and the glimpse the reader gets of life in the nineteenth century during the gold rush.

I find this series an entertaining and absorbing read. I think the characters are well drawn and I like the touches of humour and the ways in which the series characters are developing especially Phryne herself. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Castlemaine Murders 10 Jan 2010
Excellent Phryne Fisher murder mystery set in the 1920s. A great example of the Kerry Greenwood's work, always keeps you guessing until the end.
