Description - The Green Mill Murder by Kerry Greenwood

Dancing divinely through the murder and mayhem of her fifth adventure, the elegant Phryne Fisher remains unflappable.

Gorgeous in her sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress, delighted by her dancing skill, pleased with her partner and warmed by the admiring regard of the banjo player, Miss Phryne Fisher had thought of tonight as a promising evening at the hottest dancehall in town, the Green Mill.

But that was before death broke in. In jazz-mad 1920s Melbourne, Phryne finds there are hidden perils in dancing the night away like murder, blackmail and young men who vanish.

Phryne Fisher's fifth adventure leads to smoke-filled clubs, a dashingly handsome band leader, some fancy flying indeed across the Australian Alps and a most unexpected tryst with a gentle stranger.

Independent, wealthy, spirited and possessed of an uninhibited style that makes every one move out of her way and stand gawking a full five minutes after she walks by Phryne Fisher is a woman who gets what she wants and has the good sense to enjoy every minute of it!' Davina Bartlett, Geelong Times

Book Review: Green Mill Murder by Kerry Greenwood - Reviewed by (07 Dec 2011)

The Green Mill Murder is the 5th of Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher series. Phryne is having a delightful time in her sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress at the hottest dancehall in town, The Green Mill, when the evening is shattered as a male dance-marathon finalist is stabbed to death on the dance floor. Shortly afterwards, her dance partner, Charles Freeman, disappears. Phryne is engaged by Charles’s mother to find him. In this episode, Phryne encounters some interesting jazz musicians, a dreadful , devious mother, a very talented blues singer, a hermit and some men who are described as “unlikely to marry”, that is to say, homosexual (gay, in those days, just meant happy). Phryne’s best quote is “Words are seldom given the respect they deserve” As always, Dot, Mr and Mrs Butler, Bert and Cec play their dependable supporting roles. As well, Phryne flies her Gipsy Moth over the Australian Alps in a daring search for a young man, makes sure the dancers get their prize and solves the murder with time to spare. While Phryne makes a few dubious judgement calls at the end, overall, devoted readers will not be disappointed.
