AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Gorgeous in her sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress, delighted by her dancing skill, pleased with her partner and warmed by the admiring regard of the banjo player, Miss Phryne Fisher had thought of tonight as a promising evening at the hottest dancehall in town, the Green Mill. But...in jazz-mad 1920s Melbourne, Phyrne finds there are hidden perils in dancing the night away - like murder, blackmail and young men who vanish.' (Source: back cover, 2005 Allen and Unwin edition)

'Phryne, gorgeous in her sparkling evening gown, had thought she would dance the night away at the hottest dancehall in town, the Green Mill. That was before death spoiled the evening.

'In jazz-mad 1920s Melbourne, Phryne finds there are hidden perils lurking in the smoky shadows — like a mystery man from her past — and it takes all her ingenuity, and her rusty flying skills, to unravel the trail of blackmail and murder.'
