    It's 1915 and the world is at war - a fact of no great significance to the quiet world of Sally Putman with its chooks to be fed, ice-creams to be sold to ferry passengers bound for the beach at Mosman, its gramophone parties and next door neighbours. But being German in an Australia gripped by prejudice is a fact that must be dealt with.

    Considered too radical perhaps for publication in its own time, The Invaluable Mystery has only now, more than sixty years after its writing, been unearthed in the National Archive.
