5.0 out of 5 stars if you think the end is missing..., 28 July 2010
This review is from: Green Mill Murder, the (Phryne Fisher Mysteries) (Paperback)
this is an excellent book, but some copies of the poisoned pen edition are missing the last section. although these copies do end at the end of a chapter, so there is a sense of conclusion, the mystery itself appears to remain unsolved. as my copy was second-hand i didn't feel comfortable asking the publisher to replace it, but i emailed them explaining the situation and they sent me a pdf file of the missing section. i would advise anyone who in the same situation to do the same. i realise this isn't precisely a review of the book (which i did love), but i noticed a lot of confusion over the ending (or lack thereof) in the amazon.com reviews and thought it would be helpful to provide an answer.

This review is from: Green Mill Murder, the (Phryne Fisher Mysteries) (Paperback)
Phryne Fisher is having an evening out with Charles Freeman at the Green Mill when a man taking part in a dance marathon is killed in front of her. Phryne soon finds herself involved in the case as she is employed by Charles' mother to find the murderer. Charles her favourite son is also the police's favoured suspect for the murder.

This is an exciting story with some positively hair raising flying adventures for Phryne herself as she tries to find a missing person. But there is humour along the way with a single-minded pet wombat. This mystery mainly involves Phryne with only brief appearances by her household and her two adopted daughters.

I enjoyed this fifth episode in the series and it definitely bears re-reading as this is the second time I have read it and it is every bit as the first time round. If you want an adventure story with plenty of mystery then try this - it can be read as a standalone novel or as part of a series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phryne strikes again!, 4 May 2013

This review is from: Green Mill Murder, the (Phryne Fisher Mysteries) (Paperback)
I have never met a Kerry greenwood I haven't liked. The divine Miss Fisher attends the final hour of a dance marathon, only for one of the contestants to drop dead at her feet and her partner to disappear!
This annoys our heroine and she is determined to get to the route of the problem. As usual she is helped by the wonderful Dot, gets advice from Bert and Cec on the Great War and finds herself deep up country trying to find a lost brother.
The wonderfully eccentric character of Phryne Fisher is immensely enjoyable and you want her to succed in helping those that deserve her aid and punishing the villains. Which she does of course as stylishly as ever.

This review is from: Green Mill Murder, the (Phryne Fisher Mysteries) (Paperback)
The Green Mill Murder is the 5th of Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher series. Phryne is having a delightful time in her sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress at the hottest dancehall in town, The Green Mill, when the evening is shattered as a male dance-marathon finalist is stabbed to death on the dance floor. Shortly afterwards, her dance partner, Charles Freeman, disappears. Phryne is engaged by Charles's mother to find him. In this episode, Phryne encounters some interesting jazz musicians, a dreadful , devious mother, a very talented blues singer, a hermit and some men who are described as "unlikely to marry", that is to say, homosexual (gay, in those days, just meant happy). Phryne's best quote is "Words are seldom given the respect they deserve" As always, Dot, Mr and Mrs Butler, Bert and Cec play their dependable supporting roles. As well, Phryne flies her Gipsy Moth over the Australian Alps in a daring search for a young man, makes sure the dancers get their prize and solves the murder with time to spare. While Phryne makes a few dubious judgement calls at the end, overall, devoted readers will not be disappointed.
