The devastating Phryne Fisher is again under fire in her fourth mystery, delving into life among the Trotskyites, tattoo parlours, pubs, and spiritualist halls of 1920s Melbourne. When a gunshot shatters the windscreen of Greenwood's unflappable detective, Phryne investigates and finds the intended target has been fatally wounded. Outraged, Fisher takes it upon herself to bring the killers to justice.

"Greenwood's flapper heroine, Phrynne (FRYnie) Fisher, is improbable but completely delightful, especially in the elegant performance of Stephanie Daniel, a master of the sophisticated deadpan delivery that makes this P.G. Wodehouse-style of comedy work. The setup: Phrynne is driving her Hispano Suiza past Victoria Dock one night when her windshield explodes. Two fleeing thugs fire more shots at her, and she finds a very beautiful young man dying of bullet wounds. This annoys her greatly as there are too few beautiful young men in the world as it is. She assembles her team of orphaned wards, freelance enforcers, and devoted staff and all too soon has sorted out a nest of murderous anarchists and solved an unrelated kidnapping along the way. Wildly entertaining. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
