'Inspired by a Kerry Greenwood short story and set amidst the passion and fanaticism of 1929 Australian Rules football. When Phryne is duped into investigating the coach's missing 'lucky cap', she discovers a gruesome murder instead. The local team captain is found hanging by a rival team's scarf and it seems at first a clear-cut case of murderous sabotage.'

This all-new collection of Phryne short stories and other Phryne miscellany - including lists of Phryne's favourite designers, decadent cocktail recipes and other ephemera - is a gorgeously collectible, must-have treat for all Phryne fans. Lavishly illustrated with divine and decadent full colour illustrations by Beth Norling, A Question of Death will bring joy to the hearts of Phryne Fisher fans everywhere.'
