4.0 out of 5 stars classic Phryne, 12 Dec. 2011
This review is from: The Green Mill Murder (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.
