1928 and a group of soldiers from the Great War believe they are being targeted by a murdrerer - two are already dead - and they need the help of Phryne to discover why and who. Meanwhile chef Anatole Bertrand asks Phryne to find his disappeared fiancee.
An easily read enjoyable mystery.

Pretty good but I really had an issue with the whole threesome bit with her Chinese lover etc. Too offcenter for me. ( )

When Bert and Cec ask for Phryne’s help in tracking down the unknown person who appears to be murdering their friends with whom they had spent a memorable night in Paris in 1918, Phyrne is thrown back into memories of her own time in Paris, also in 1918, and full of events she has spent 10 years determinedly not recalling. At the same time, she is asked to look into the apparent kidnapping of a wealthy young woman whose father, a horse dealer not known for his probity. As if that was not enough, she must cope with domestic problems in the form of Mr. Butler, who objects to her continuing liaison with Lin Chung because the latter is about to get married, and adultery is where Mr. Butler draws the line…. Once again, Ms. Greenwood’s book is light even when dealing with such serious matters as wife-beating and penury, but in this particular entry, we especially learn a lot more about Phyrne’s life in Paris a decade before the events of the series, including how she came to be the fearless and street-smart young woman we’ve come to know and love. Recommended! ( )

Bert and Cec usually help Phryne on her cases, but this time they are asking for her help. It seems someone is killing off some old friends of theirs. Why, they don’t know.

These friends were part of a group of soldiers who served together in 1918. They all get together once a year and this year there are 2 missing. As Phryne investigates, she finds that those men passed through Montparnasse at the same time Phryne was there. Memories of that past time come up — good and bad. A little of Phryne’s exotic past is revealed.

Meanwhile Lin Chung is getting married and he wants Phryne to meet his bride-to-be. This causes some upset within the household, causing Phryne to worry about how her smooth running household will function if things fall apart.

There is also the matter of the missing daughter of a “prominent racing identity,” another term for racehorse owner and breeder. A demanding, mean and rude man who feels that money can buy anyone. He finds that he can’t buy Phryne — she won’t accept any fee for her service in finding the girl. Seems the daughter went with a friend to a dance and disappeared.

Needless to say, Phryne has a lot of irons in the fire to deal with, along with those old memories she has tried to bury.

Again, I enjoyed my visit to Phryne’ world of Australia in the 1920s. ( )
