I mainly read this for the short stories, none of which I had read elsewhere. The short glossary at the back also told me a few things that I didn't know.

Set in 1928, this anthology was published between #16 and #17 in the Phryne Fisher series (#16 was set on Christmas Eve 1928) There are currently 22 books in the series, with #22 due to be published in May 2022. I haven't read all of them by any means (although more than I have listed below) and so I think I should look for more this year.

Kerry Greenwood has written another 35 books outside this series (see the list at Fantastic Fiction), including some historical non-fiction, and several books for young adults.

There are 13 short stories in A QUESTION OF DEATH, some better than others, but mostly entertaining.

There is an interesting prelude by the author at the front of the anthology in which she says Phryne Fisher is her favourite heroine. ( )

An amusing batch of stories with a very likable heroine. Phryne is a smart, independent, funny lady of the 1920's who solves mysteries. Light reading but amusing. ( )

This collection of short stories runs the gambit from the early days of Phryne's career to the current time frame. They were all fun to read! ( )

Considering I am a Phryne fan, I scored this collection of short stories rather low. I liked them (kind of) but not particularly.

The short stories, were, well...Short and lacked substance, as well as the fact some were repeated themes from her novels with different outcomes.

I could have done without the interview of Phryne (which was trite) and illustrations. I don't need or want to know what Phyrne's favorite headpieces, shoes are, or what is in her handbag.

I did like the recipes, especially for the Tea Cake & Champagne Punch:

4 ripe pineapples peeled & cubed)
2 cups sugar
1 bottle white rum
2 cups lemon juice
1 cup grenadine
1 bottle brandy (get the good stuff...it does matter)
1 cup cherry liqueur
8 bottles of champagne

Marinate the pineapple in the rum & sugar overnight. Add all the ingredients except the champagne (in a punch bowl) and mix well. Pour the champagne in just before serving. Whoo hoo!

I was first introduced to Phryne Fisher through Netflix. I stumbled across a series, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and fell immediately in love. Phyrne is a lady detective in the 1920's living in Australia. She's a very modern, sassy, sexy kind of woman. So imagine my excitement when I learned that the series is based off a book series by Kerry Greenwood.

A Question of Death is a collection of thirteen short stories starring the fantastic Phryne Fisher. I love and hate short stories because they are never long enough to suit my tastes. Plus in mysteries, there is not a lot of setup and buildup before the case is solved. But despite that this book was still good. For me, it was the perfect book to read just before bed.

In addition to the short stories, this book also has illustrations strewn throughout. They give the book a quaint touch. At the end of each story a recipe is included for either food or drink. I didn't try any of the recipes yet, but I will in the future. Overall I enjoyed this book. There was, however, a concern with the first few stories. They had an excessive amount of typos and missing words. I sincerely hope that this is just an oversight of the publisher and they've since corrected the errors. ( )
