Seven Australian soldiers, carousing in Paris in 1918, unknowingly witness a murder. Ten years later, two are dead...under very suspicious circumstances. Enter the fascinating Phryne Fisher.

Ten years later, two are dead ... under very suspicious circumstances.Phryne's wharfie mates, Bert and Cec, appealto her for help. They were part of this groupof soldiers in 1918 and they fear for their livesand for those of the other three men. It's only asPhryne delves into the investigation that she, too, remembers being in Montparnasse on that verysame day.While Phryne is occupied with memories ofMontparnasse past and the race to outpace themurderer, she finds troubles of a different kindat home. Her lover, Lin Chung, is about to bemarried. And the effect this is having on her ownusually peaceful household is disastrous.""Phryne Fisher is young, wealthy, beautiful, smart, confident and independently minded ... and shehas a knack for solving murders when she is notsipping a strengthening cocktail or planninganother seduction.""-The Australian's Review of Books --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Phryne Fisher's friends - Bert and Cec, taxi drivers and wharfies - are worried that some of their former army mates from the Great War are being murdered. Phryne agrees that there seems to be something odd going on and wonders whether it is linked to something they may have witnessed in Paris.

Phryne herself was in Paris at the time but it is part of her life she really doesn't want to recall. Current circumstances force her to confront her fears and deal with the past.

Phryne also has two other cases to investigate - various attacks on a French restaurant whose owner refuses to pay protection money and a kidnapped girl who is about to marry the restaurant owner.

Phyrne's adopted daughters Jane and Ruth play a part in this story with some very good detective work. I really enjoyed this book and I think it is probably my favourite in the series so far. The plot is complex and interesting and kept me guessing until all was revealed. I also enjoyed the update on Lin Chung's marriage plans and the twist that involves.

I thoroughly recommend this series to anyone who likes crime and mystery stories which are a bit different from the norm. There are interesting characters and backgrounds and a touch of humour though this does not stop Phryne and her author, from tackling some complex and serious issues.

Format:Paperback
Totally bonkers policy by the publishers, offering only the first three books on kindle and then a handful of later titles, but the vast majority of the Phryne Fisher titles being forbidden to Kindle readers. When the publishers and distributors get their act together and bother issuing the series in the same format, then I'll be able to read this book in its original context.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After Murder in the Dark, I think this is the second best. The story of Phryne in Paris just after the first world war in both interesting in itself and also central to understanding Phryne's love life and her need of independence. Recommended
warmly.
