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.

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.

Not my favourite of the Phryne Fisher stories but still good. As always the interview with the author at the end is interesting.
