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 Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison and chicken soup. Ultimately it is her stealth and wit which solve the crime - and all for the price of a song. (Source: LibrariesAustralia)

'When a young man is found dead in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, Phryne Fisher is plunged into the diverse worlds of Jewish politics, alchemy and poison.

'She works her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls — Bert, Cec, Dot, Dr Mac and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. Ultimately, though, it's her stealth and wit that solve the crime — and all for the price of a song...'
