Editorial Reviews


An action-filled fantasy with characters that are engaging and original. The language and concept can, at times, be complex enough to challenge a strong upper primary reader and introduce them to new language and ideas. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy and the Cairo Jim series. Recommended for primary and public libraries. -- Magpies
Readers will almost feel the whoosh of air as they are whisked from time to time by Phyllis in search of the truth. Phyllis is a dynamic sleuth and Clement her trusty offsider in this breakneck paced mystery adventure. She knows when she needs help and is fortunate enough to have an ally in the police commissioner. But mostly she's an independent, quick-thinking, creative conjuror. Mystery, humour, history and magic intertwine to keep the reader turning the page. Recommended for mid-primary readers. -- Aussie Reviews

It contains all the best elements of a book of its genre, and presents them in a wonderful, imaginative style for older readers ... The author challenges readers. He presents new concepts, ideas and language which are explained and easily incorporated into his story ... mythology and magic are intermingled ... As with all of the best fantasy books, this is full of action, and the magical world is plausible. -- Bluewolf Reviews

Geoffrey McSkimming is the author of the bestselling 19 volume Cairo Jim chronicles (published worldwide from 1991 -- 2008) and now the new Phyllis Wong mysteries, featuring the brilliant young magician and clever sleuth, Phyllis Wong. Phyllis Wong and the Secrets of Mr. Okyto, Phyllis Wong and the Return of the Conjuror, Phyllis Wong and the Waking of the Wizard, Phyllis Wong and the Pockets of the Shadows, Phyllis Wong and the Girl who Danced with Lightning and Phyllis Wong and the Vanishing Emeralds have appeared to widespread acclaim and much enjoyment. Phyllis Wong and the Crumpled Stranger is coming in 2020.

All of the Cairo Jim chronicles are now e-published by 9 Diamonds Press and are available through Amazon's Kindle platform. A brand new Cairo Jim story will appear soon.
