Driving home late one night, Phryne Fisher is surprised when someone shoots out her windscreen. When she alights she finds a pretty young man with an anarchist tattoo dying on the tarmac just outside the dock gates. He bleeds to death in her arms, and all over her silk shirt. Enraged by the loss of the clothing, the damage to her car, and this senseless waste of human life, Phryne promises to find out who is responsible. But she doesn’t yet know how deeply into the mire she’ll have to go: bank robbery, tattoo parlours, pubs, spiritualist halls, and anarchists. Along this path, Phryne meets Peter, a scarred but delectable wharfie who begins to unfold the mystery of who would need a machine gun in Melbourne. But when someone kidnaps her cherished companion, Dot, Phryne will stop at nothing to retrieve her.

I enjoyed reading this very much. I like the Phrynne Fisher stories a lot and it is a pleasure to find them on Kobo as the are not all readily available in the stores. This was a treat for me and I look forward to more as my budget allows. the book is very light hearted in tone even though the subject is serious and Miss Fisher's adventures keep all her "minions" busy as usual. these stories are different from many modern mysteries available today

Highly entertaining. Multiple threads brought effectively to an exciting and fun close. So far not a bad read in the series.

Kerry Greenwood has done it again, writing another excellent, quirky story. Her characters are so well formed I feel like I know them and I want to read more. The novel has action, humour, emotions, suspense and it keeps the reader very interested. I love that it is not a heavy read, but it has plenty of body and a joy to read. I highly recommend this book and have been to my friends,
