The divine Phryne Fisher returns to lead another dance of intrigue. Seven Australian soldiers, carousing in Paris in 1918, unknowingly witness a murder and their presence has devastating consequences. Ten years later, two are dead ... under very suspicious circumstances. Phryne's wharfie mates, Bert and Cec, appeal to her for help. They were part of this group of soldiers in 1918 and they fear for their lives and for those of the other three men.

It's only as Phryne delves into the investigation that she, too, remembers being in Montparnasse on that very same day. While Phryne is occupied with memories of Montparnasse past and the race to outpace the murderer, she finds troubles of a different kind at home. Her lover, Lin Chung, is about to be married. And the effect this is having on her own usually peaceful household is disastrous. Download and start listening now!

    " My first Phryne Fisher! While jumping in at the middle so to speak left me playing catch-up with who was who & what was what I did eventually become immersed in the period and loved Phryne. She is a bit like Emma Peel- lots of skills & connections at all levels of society (no snob she) but still a lover of style. Many fascinating characters I want to know more about. Will definitely continue with this series. "

    " I love the books but not the tv series just released in Australia. I love to watch English police series and they do it so well but somehow we just can't get it right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/1/2014

    " My favorite in the series so far. Phryne confronts her demons from her time in Paris. This had a little more heft to it than these usually do, but it still had its light moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miwa | 12/26/2013

    " This is one of those rare times where the tv episode was better than the actual book. Still, it's a solid read with an interesting side story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 12/7/2013

    " These are cute, late 1920s detective novels with some fun twists. Good for Kerry Greenwood. Keep 'em coming!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannan | 11/24/2013

    " I read five from the Phryne Fisher series when I had my surgery last year. This was my favortie one (because it takes place in Paris...a city I love. These books are so much fun. Phryne is a real woman's hero and is everything we wish we could be...petite, strong, beatuiful, mysterious, independent, rich, clever, smart, and funny. Her adventures got me through some tough days of bed rest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 11/14/2013

    " My favorite so far--I love that I learned so many new words and that this book fleshed out more of Phryne's character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 10/28/2013

    " Great little "who dun it". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne in PA/Lineepinee | 4/5/2013

    " This is book 12 in the 15 book series, however the first I have read. This may prove to be a light fun series with the adventures of Phryne Fisher a flapper sleuth. I may read more of the series if the books are available at my local library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ms_prue | 1/29/2013

    " Everything I know about postwar Paris I learned from this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Notalice | 1/23/2013

    " Listening to Bolinda audio read by Stephanie Daniel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindig | 12/2/2012

    " Very evocative of Paris and its Sapphic sisterhood. Also tied it all in nicely with more of Phryne's background and the mystery she solves in Australia. A little bouncing around, and a few amazing coincidences, but the Parisian atmosphere made up for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 colleen | 10/23/2012

    " read 12.14.07 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudette | 10/16/2012

    " The Phryne Fisher mysteries are like bonbons. Excellent beach reads. And original plots make this series worth seeking out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 8/5/2012

    " A fairly low-key Phryne Fisher mystery. We get a glimpse of Phryne's post WWI life in Paris (through flash-backs) as she tries to figure out if a figure from her past is involved in a current murder. Also to hand--domestic strife with Mr and Mrs Butler. All ends well, of course. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sallie | 3/20/2011

    " Solid mystery with a fun main character. I hope the historical info is correct, because I enjoyed the insight into post WWI Paris and the work of a female ambulance driver in the Great War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 1/5/2011

    " I enjoy this particular avante gard heroine. this particular book delves into her past: what happened to her just after WWI in Paris and what does it have to do with her current mystery 10 years later. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 1/4/2011

    " Enjoyed the setting--jumping back and forth from Paris to Australia. Solid mystery. And I'm coming to like Phryne more and more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/22/2010

    " Nice easy read/listen, 3.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CatBookMom | 12/7/2010

    " This is one of the best of the series. You learn a great deal about how Phryne came to be such a strong, independent woman, with the reminiscences of her time in Paris immediately after leaving the ambulance service in 1918. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 10/24/2010

    " This is the first murder mystery I have ever read set in Australia. Of course, the baddie was a Frenchman. I love the character Phryne Fisher. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 10/13/2009

    " This book was rather interesting in asmuch as it concern a "modern" woman shortly after WWI, with flashes back to that time; it also deals a bit with Picasso and other artists of the period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Swanbender2001 | 6/14/2009

    " I have enjoyed three of these Phryne Fisher books and I look forward to reading more when the mood strikes. She is a breath of fresh air. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen Flatley | 5/27/2009

    " First the discovery of Nero Wolfe, now this delightful series from Australian author Kerry Greenwood. Great beach reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasula | 3/23/2009

    " Another light mystery starring Hon. Phryne Fisher, in 1928 Melbourne, Australia, a rich amateur (and amatory) investigator, with the usual colorful cast of characters. I usually read dark, urban fantasy- and these mysteries are a refreshing change from the gritty, violent fantasie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 2/7/2009

    " One of the best in the series. We actually get a look at part of Phryne's past in Paris! "
