9781743178072: Murder and Mendelssohn (Phryne Fisher Mystery)

Murder, spies, mathematics and music – it’s all in a day’s work for Phryne Fisher in her 20th adventure! An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher’s assistance to enter a world in which he is at sea. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls, disdainful air and the lavender eyes of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They’ve certainly taken the heart of Phryne’s old friend from the trenches of WW1, John Wilson. Phryne recognises Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm. With Mendelssohn’s ‘Elijah’, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ringing her head, Phryne’s past must also play it’s part as MI6 becomes involved in the tangled web of murders.

From the Inside Flap:

To the accompaniment of heavenly choirs singing, the fearless Miss Phryne Fisher returns in her 20th adventure with musical score in hand. An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher s assistance to enter a world in which he is truly lost. Hugh Tregennis, not much liked by anyone, has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls, disdainful air and the lavender eyes of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They ve certainly taken the heart of Phryne s old friend from the trenches of WWI, John Wilson. Phryne recognizes Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm. Even with the faithful Dot, Mr. and Mrs. Butler, and all in her household ready to pull their weight, Phryne s task is complex. While Mendelssohn s Elijah, memories of the Great War, and the science of deduction ring in her head, Phryne s past must also play its part as MI6 become involved in the tangled web of murders. Kerry Greenwood s novels include the Corinna Chapman series and the Phryne Fisher mysteries, recently made into an acclaimed TV program currently in its second season (Miss Fisher s Murder Mysteries). She is also the author of many books for young adults, including the Delphic Women series and Out Of The Black Land, a novel of ancient Egypt. Murder and Mendelssohn is the 20th Phryne Fisher mystery and her 62nd novel. She is not married, has no children, lives with a registered Wizard, and when she is not writing she stares blankly out the window. www.phrynefisher.com"
