Phryne Fisher is on holiday. She means to take the train to Sydney (where the harbour bridge is being built), go to a few cricket matches, dine with the Chancellor of the university and perhaps go to the Arts Ball with that celebrated young modernist, Chas Nutall. She has the costume of a lifetime and she's not afraid to use it. When she arrives there, however, her maid Dot finds that her extremely respectable married sister Joan has vanished, leaving her small children to the neglectful care of a resentful husband. She rescues the children, but what has become of Joan, who would never leave her babies?

I especially enjoyed the part where she fell down the well, lit her undies on fire, and ravished the prof.!

This is the 10th Phryne Fisher mystery. It was a relatively quick read but felt a bit disjointed. It was as though there were two mysteries Greenwood had started but not enough of either to make a complete book. She then tossed them together in this book, but they were not particularly connected. I would recommend others before this one

My introduction to the Phryne Fisher series; I'm off to get more! Australia in the 1920's, delightful characters and interesting bits of history. Those who know nothing about cricket beyond bats and wickets will find there is quite a lot of incomprehensible description of the game but it adds to the atmosphere and doesn't detract from the plot.
