Abduction, intrigue and death - it's just not cricket! Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn - a few days at the Test match, a little sightseeing and the Artist's Ball with an up-and-coming young modernist. But these plans begin to go awry when Phryne's maid discovers her thoroughly respectable sister has left her family for the murky nightlife of the city's seamier side. And Phryne is definitely not the woman to say no when two delightful and handsome men come to her on bended knees, begging for her help in finding their friend innocent of theft.

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.
