Apparently, this book was printed missing the last chapter, and a copy of the chapter can be requested from the publisher: http://www.poisonedpenpress.com/the-green-mill-murder/

I'm enjoying every one of these books. They're so fun, and you learn a lot in the process.

The WWI history and the descriptions of ANZAC experiences in this one were moving. The Jazz was interesting.The homosexuality, well-handled and I always like the clothes. No wonder the television series is so popular. However, I do wish the publishers would take more care and realize that there is a difference between an acute accent and a grave when it comes to French pronunciation. Some of the solecisms were inappropriate and irritating.All in all a better read than some of her others but I still prefer the TV version.

I agree with the previous comments: another good murder mystery instalment but I liked the Gallipoli event added into the story line.

I love these Phyrne Fisher books, but I am running out. Can anyone direct me to mysteries that are similar? I think I like these in part because they are not too scary and of course I really like all the characters (I don't like the Corrina ones as much). I also enjoy the Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich) series.

If you ever wanted to go back in time and hear a Digger talk about Anzac cove and so on, go to page 98 in this book, it's the best most moving account I've heard - even if it is made up. It should be read out at every ANZAC day service and Rememberance day service. It's just brilliant. Having said that, the rest of the story is compelling, it's a fast read, because you won't be able to put the book down. I love it, very much.
