"Pure indulgence ... a 1920s heroine for the 90s ... a fast and elegant read."
Who Weekly

The 1920s' most elegant and irrepressible sleuth returns.

The sassy Phryne Fisher sets the seamy side of Sydney alight in her tenth adventure. Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn, but they begin to go awry when Phryne's maid discovers her thoroughly respectable sister Joan has left her family for the murky nightlife on the Cross, and then postponed again because Phryne is definitely not the woman to say 'no' when two delightful young men are on their knees, begging for her help in finding their friend innocent of theft. It all sounds simple enough as Phryne sets investigations into motion. But when greed and fear are the motivating factors, people become ruthless and Phryne quickly finds herself enmeshed in blackmail, secrets, lies and the dangerous influences of deep magic.

"Phyrne Fisher has solved quite a few mysteries during her career. Here a holiday trip to Sydney is just what she needs for some R&R. But when her personal maid's sister goes missing and she agrees to defend a young man for theft, she finds herself smack-dab in the midst of black magic, deceit, violence, and murder. Stephanie Daniel proves to be Phyrne's equal. Daniel's narration reveals an intelligent woman, always on par with any male counterpart. The colorful characters, whether professors or men of the underworld, are portrayed impeccably. Clever, witty, and filled with gusto, Greenwood's novel, as delivered by Daniel, is an exciting whodunit."
