Raisins and Almonds (Phryne Fisher, #9) by Kerry Greenwood

Who poisoned the foreign student? Was it the owner of the bookstore where he died? His Zionist connections? The unknown person he was leaving a message for? The person he wanted to buy guns from? The vanished carter? Who?!

But hey, gotcha! In fact there are like no suspects. Greenwood spends most of the book telling you about Zionism and Jewish migration and mysticism and Phrynes clothes. Really most of the stuff you learn in the book is irrelevant to the mystery. I was kind of bored by the mini-lectures and did not entirely care for her depiction of Jews, which was positive but full of stereotypes.

And poor detective Jack Robinson -- his character seems to get rewritten in every book. I didnt find it believable that he would have charged Miss Lee for basically no reason, making up such a groundless explanation to cast her as the murderer. It made no sense and didnt fit how intelligent and open-minded he was in some of the other books.

Not terrible, but my least favorite of the series.
