Phryne Fisher is doing one of her favorite things --dancing at the Green Mill (Melbourne's premier dance hall) to the music of Tintagel Stone's Jazzmakers, the band who taught St Vitus how to dance. And she's wearing a sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress. Nothing can flap the unflappable Phryne--especially on a dance floor with so many delectable partners. Nothing except death, that is.The dance competition is trailing into its last hours when suddenly, in the middle of "Bye Bye Blackbird" a figure slumps to the ground. No shot was heard. Phryne, conscious of how narrowly the missile missed her own bare shoulder, back, and dress, investigates.This leads her into the dark smoky jazz clubs of Fitzroy, into the arms of eloquent strangers, and finally into the the sky, as she follows a complicated family tragedy of the great War and the damaged men who came back from ANZAC cove.Phryne flies her Gypsy Moth Rigel into the Autralian Alps, where she meets a hermit with a dog called Lucky and a wombat living under his bunk....and risks her life on the love between brothers.

3.0 The Green Mill Murder: A Phryne Fisher Mystery
The case where Phrynee gets to have an adventure in the Australian outback, enjoys jazz and solves a murder that she did not really want to solve. Still entertaining but I'm probably getting tired of the style, I did read 5 titles in the series in a row. More telling, less showing in this one and on...

I thought I'd hate the book upon starting -- the dance marathon murder and the Jazz band were all pretty boring, but once the shell-shocked hermit brother showed up, I think the story turned far more interesting. Reflections on Gallipoli made the story far more dimensional than the books typically a...
