Not sure if I'm just way to mean when I judge authors but Kerry Greenwood seems to gain my dislike remarkably easily I have read one of her fiction books before which utterly turned me off her but this book is non fiction and I like to give every author a second chance The book was kind of worth reading It was only just bearable reading something by this author again because it was based on fact and not her boring and yucky imagination Part of the reason I think that Greenwood as an author annoys me is she comes as across as one of those antiuated hypocritical feminists that interject gender politics in to everything where it has no relevance what so ever Also this book is riddled with the mistakes of an intellectual that has become 'smart' by years of pushing herself with very little chance of actually being truly brilliant in the brains department Harsh I am but I'm fairly sure I'm not alone in my judgement as the copy of this book I borrowed from the library has pencil marks from another reader's furious corrections of Greenwood's naiveness and stupidity Never again will I read another Greenwood Although I do have to say that for an author I despise I like the mixed up approach of the book as she interjects parts of creative nonfiction and includes tangents of her own family history in there Her Dad seems nice and like he really loved her I want to say something nice about Greenwood because I feel awful concluding my thoughts about her on a negative basis I'm sure she's an alright person but I just don't get along with her writing style it seems very pompous and self agrandising Something tells me she would also be like this as a person too

In 1948 a man was found dead on an Adelaide beach Well dressed and unmarked he had a half smoked cigarette by his side but no identity documents Six decades on we don’t know who he was how he got there or how he died Somerton Man remains one of Australia’s most mysterious cold casesI came across this incident in another book I was reading and it interested me enough to go looking for details When I discovered a book about it written by one of my favourite authors I obviously had to read itKerry Greenwood had a huge interest in the story plus a knowledge of the area and lots of information about the ways people can die gleaned from her research when writing the Phryne Fisher books She made the perfect author for this book presenting all the details arguing different theories giving the reader plenty of background detail and finally writing it all in an entertaining easy to read mannerBest of all was a Phryne Fisher short story included at the end in which Phryne solves the mystery of the Somerton Man This was fun and also unusual in that it is set much later than the series and Phryne is much older So if you are a fan of the Phryne Fisher books and you want to know what happens to her later in life read this
