An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance. Hugh Tregennis has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking?
At the same time, the dark curls and disdainful air of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They've certainly taken the heart of Phryne's old friend from the trenches of WWI, John Wilson. Phryne recognises Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm. While Mendelssohn's 'Elijah,' memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne's past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders.
"Greenwood's strength lies in her ability to create characters that are wholly satisfying: the bad guys are bad, and the good guys are great." (

Lost the story line?
A little less on the homosexual love story (I found it a little tedious after a while) a better explanation on why one of the main docklands "kingpins" wanted to kill one of them (we are told) but not until the main event. When did Phyrne become involved in MI6 and then there was the add on story about the choir (which is where the Mendelssohn came in for the title) but the solution finished so fast you went "is that it" . I was disappointed Ms Greenwood is usually better than this.
Maybe but only if the were a real Phyrne fan otherwise no
