Phryne Fisher Mystery, Book 9
Super-sleuth Phryne Fisher steps, like an elegant cat, through this, her eighth adventure.
In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison and chicken soup. Stopping only for a brief, but inensely erotic, dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls - Bert, Cec, Dot and Detective Inspector 'Call Me Jack' Robinson. But ultimately it is her stealth and wit which solve the crime - and all for the price of a song...
'Phryne Fisher is gutsy and adventurous, and also well endowed with plenty of grey matter. She has it over Robicheaux and Poirot because she's drop-dead gorgeous.' - WEST AUSTRALIAN
