Item Description...
Phryne Fisher is doing one of her favorite things --dancing at the Green Mill (Melbourne's premier dance hall) to the music of Tintagel Stone's Jazzmakers, the band who taught St Vitus how to dance. And she's wearing a sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress. Nothing can flap the unflappable Phryne--especially on a dance floor with so many delectable partners. Nothing except death, that is.
The dance competition is trailing into its last hours when suddenly, in the middle of "Bye Bye Blackbird" a figure slumps to the ground. No shot was heard. Phryne, conscious of how narrowly the missile missed her own bare shoulder, back, and dress, investigates.
This leads her into the dark smoky jazz clubs of Fitzroy, into the arms of eloquent strangers, and finally into the the sky, as she follows a complicated family tragedy of the great War and the damaged men who came back from ANZAC cove.
Phryne flies her Gypsy Moth Rigel into the Autralian Alps, where she meets a hermit with a dog called Lucky and a wombat living under his bunk....and risks her life on the love between brothers.

Kerry Greenwood  Jul 21, 2008
The USA should discover Phryne Fisher. These books are fun! Kerry Greenwood has created a character all women will love - 1920's modern, stylish, independent. Phryne travels through life solving peoples problems, and collecting a wonderful cast of friends. Traveling with Phryne (always first class and in the latest fashions) is a rich adventure.
pages are indeed missing  Jun 12, 2007
in my copy, which i ordered from australia since it wasn't available here at the time, the main mystery was definitely solved. (i am editing my review to include this information: a chapter and a half is missing from this edition, which i bought to replace my worn australian paperback. i just re-read the novel yesterday and compared it to the paperback. i'm appalled.)

so, assuming you can get a complete copy, i would recommend this and every other phryne to anyone interested in mysteries (except the writer of the synopsis who thinks, goodness knows how, that the mysteries are light), or in australian history 9and if you aren't interested in australian history, you will be after one of these books), or just wonderful writing. the series is consistently high quality, with even the less than perfect far superior to most of what is currently being published. phyrne is refresingly adult, decisive, independent, and competent. the plots hark back to the great mysteries of the 20s and 30s. there is humor, suspense and interesting characters.

who could ask for anything more?
Missing pages?  May 30, 2007
The main mystery isn't concluded -- which is itself a mystery. What I'm wondering, given that the book has approx. 173 pages and this site lists it as 270 pages, is whether the last 100 pages might be missing for some reason, which would account for the comments on the slightly disappointing ending or lack of conclusion. Otherwise, a witty and enjoyable novel and particularly interesting on the jazz age.
Post WWI and all that jazz.  May 13, 2007
Phryne does it again. It's a big island; can't anyone resist her? Good stuff on 20's jazz.
excellent look at 1920s Australia   Apr 7, 2007
The Honorable Phryne Fisher accompanies Charles Freeman to Green Mill, a dance hall that was very popular in Australia in the 1920's. She promised his mother that she would look after her son when one of the participants in a dance hall is knifed to death. He was behind Phryne who didn't see the actual stabbing but when her escort sees the bloody body, he gets sick and runs into the men's room. By the time the police arrive on the scene, Charles has disappeared.

His mother, a cruel and hateful virago, asks Phryne, who moonlights as a private detective, to find him. She discovers Charles is gay and possesses pictures that could get him killed since at that time and place sodomy was against the law. When she finally finds Charles she hands him over to the police even though she doesn't think he is the killer. She also has to make a trip to the outback to find Victor, the brother who Charles believes is dead because his mother told him so. Mrs. Freeman wishes Victor was dead so she would inherit the house and money as her late husband left her with nothing. Phryne finds a confrontation between the two brothers is inevitable.

THE GREEN MILL MURDER is so much more than a murder mystery, it is a journey into the heart of a family, a trip into the new musical world of jazz and it is the story of a woman who lives her life her way regardless what society thinks. 1920s Australia comes to glorious life in Kerry Greenwood's capable hands, but though the mystery is superb, the locale vivid, and the era descriptive, readers will continue reading this series because the heroine is such a fascinating character.
