To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand. An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance to enter a world in which he is at sea. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls, disdainful air and the lavender eyes of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They've certainly taken the heart of Phryne's old friend from the trenches of WW1, John Wilson. Phryne recognises Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm. Even with the faithful Dot, Mr and Mrs Butler, and all in her household ready to pull their weight, Phryne's task is complex. While Mendelssohn's Elijah, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne's past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders. A vastly entertaining tale of murder, spies, mathematics and music.

The original murder and the ensuing mayhem is perhaps needlessly complicated, but what matters, as always, are the people Phryne meets during her adventures and whose lives she...

4.5 Murder and Mendelssohn (Phryne Fisher #20)
So for those who have never heard of Phryne Fisher - where to start? A quick(ish) introduction I think. Phryne Fisher is fabulous. Intelligent, clever, strong, independent, confident, beautiful, rich. With a minor title (honorable). She is a bit like James Bond; well-educated, well-mannered, w...
