Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood

Title: Cocaine Blues

The best four-word summary for this series is “Nancy Drew gone wild,” which is high praise, in my opinion. It makes the most of its Roaring ‘20s setting and glamorous heroine. Phryne Fisher is not without her flaws, and she is not unscathed by life, but she is refreshingly free of needless self-doubt and insecurity, which makes for a nice change from the endlessly neurotic heroines who populate much of modern literature.  You may also want to check out the Australian TV series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, based on this book series.
