|Too Rich||Melissa Chan||Spinifex||1991|
‘You can never be too thin or too rich,’ said Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. But Francesca Miles, independent feminist detective, disagrees. When one of the richest men in Sydney is found dead in his penthouse, she teams up with Inspector Joe Barnaby in a mystery that follows the trials and tribulations of a family that should have everything that money can buy. A thoroughly riveting read.
One of the best Australian whodunnits … the characterisation is superb, the style elegant.Ray Davie, The Age
