Customer Review

There is a dance marathon taking place at the Green Mill - a nightclub. Phryne Fisher is visiting the club with her rather unsatisfactory swain, Charles Freeman when one of the contestants falls down dead. Charles decamps leaving Phryne to eye up the rather delectable banjo player and to try and work out how it was done.

Charles Freeman's doting mother engages Phryne to try and clear his name because the police suspect him of the murder. Charles's elder brother took off into the bush some years before, suffering from the after effects of shell shock and Mrs Freeman asks Phryne to try and track him down.

I really enjoyed this book with its exciting flight and days in the bush. One of the most endearing characters is a wombat kept as a pet. This is a thoughtful and amusing book with some thought provoking things to say about suffocating families and city or country living. The murder almost takes second place to Phryne's appetite for adventure but I found it a very satisfying and enjoyable read. This enjoyable and well written story started with Cocaine Blues (Phryne Fisher Mysteries)
