Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth biplane in flight is excitement-enough for most people, but not Phryne Fisher, aviatrix, socialite, and private investigator. Whether she's seducing beautiful young men, foiling nefarious kidnappers, or simply deciding what to wear to dinner, Phryne handles everything with inimitable panache and flair. 

In this, the second Phryne Fisher mystery, Australia's most glamorous detective flies even higher, handling murder, a kidnapping and the usual array of beaus—all before adjourning to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. 

“Phryne Fisher's delightful flapper antics will appeal to fans of Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey.” — Lamia Doumato, Library Journal

The many U.S. fans of Greenwood's feisty and plucky Australian flapper sleuth Phryne Fisher should especially enjoy the second entry in the series (Cocaine Blues, etc.), which presents another pair of cases from the early days of her career as a private detective.
