The tenth book in the Phryne Fisher series)

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.
