Book Review: Blood and Circuses by Kerry Greenwood - Reviewed by CloggieA (31 Mar 2012)
Blood and Circuses is the 6th of the Phryne Fisher series by Kerry Greenwood. A bored Phryne is convinced by carnie friends to help solve the mystery of a series of strange happenings at Farrell’s Circus: happenings which have culminated in the murder of a performer in his bedroom at Mrs Witherspoon’s boarding house. Phryne’s undercover role entails riding, standing and falling off horses, leading to a rather bruised heroine before she finally masters the art. As Phryne investigates, she encounters a myriad of characters as only a circus can harbour, as well as a cast of carnies and gypsies. How the rival gangs of Melbourne are involved in it all is something that Constable Tommy Harris and DI Jack Robinson need to discover, or the young, innocent ex-convict charged with the murder may be headed for the gallows. Phryne illustrates in this instalment just how sexually liberated she really is; she also discovers how happiness can be eroded by even a self-imposed exposure to reduced circumstances. Filled with bright lights, the big top, dangerous animals and interesting performers, is the circus all illusion? Another Greenwood masterpiece.
Kerry Greenwood is the author of twenty-seven novels and the editor of two collections. Previous novels in the Phryne Fisher series are Cocaine Blues, Flying too High, Murder on the Ballarat Train, Death at Victoria Dock, The Green Mill Murder, Ruddy Gore, Urn Burial, Raisins and Almonds, Death Before Wicket, Away with the Fairies, Murder in Montparnasse, The Castlemaine Murders and Queen of the Flowers. She is also the author of several books for young adults and the Delphic Women series. When she is not writing she is an advocate in Magistrates' Court for the Legal Aid Commission. She is not married, has no children and lives with a registered Wizard.
