Synopsis

1918: Seven Australian soldiers on leave in Paris were unknowing witnesses to a murder. 

1928: Two of the seven are dead under suspicious circumstances and their comrades, fearing for their own lives, call on services of the Honorable Phryne Fisher. She, too, was in Montparnasse that day, driving an ambulance, and knows something of the effect the Great War had on men.

“A most charming, sexy, independent, and candid heroine; clever, literate dialog and closely woven plotting will win immediate fans.” —Rex E. Klett, Library Journal

While fans of Australian author Greenwood's light and humorous Phryne Fisher mystery series (Cocaine Blues, etc.) may expect the plot to be subordinate to the heroine's displays of wit and libido, the degree to which that is the case this time out makes this a less successful entry than most.
