Publisher's Summary

The glorious Phryne Fisher returns to the spotlight in her seventh adventure. Fisher is an independent, unconventional PI with competence, unflappability and flamboyance in equal measures. Running late to the Hinkler gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, she meets some thugs in a dark alley and handles them convincingly before they can ruin her silver dress. Phryne then finds that she has rescued a gorgeous Chinese, Lin Chung, and his grandmother, and is briefly mistaken for a deity. Denying divinity but accepting cognac, she later continues safely to the theater. But it's an unexpected evening as her night is again interrupted by a most bizarre death onstage.
What links can Phryne possibly find between the ridiculously entertaining plot of Ruddigore, the city's Chinese community, and the actors treading the boards of His Majesty's Theatre? Drawn backstage and onstage, Phryne must solve an old murder and find a new murderer, and, of course, banish the theater's ghost, who seems likely to kill again.


What the Critics Say

"Scented, dangerous, and highly enjoyable." ( The Weekend Australian)"Phryne Fisher sparkles with wit and champagne elegance. Stephanie Daniel performs with genteel ease. Her upper-class Australian accents and her wild assortment of reputable and disreputable characters are truly amazing." ( AudioFile)

Too much terrible singing

Stephanie Daniel is usually so good but please Stephanie no more singing! Spoiled the end entirely. The only time I have ever fast forwarded a book.

Same great formula

Same great formula as the other Phryne Fisher books. Well told and well read.
Really missed the interview with Kerry Greenwood at the end (there wasn't one) to understand why it was written and her research for the book.
