A Phryne Fisher mystery
Greenwood, Kerry. Phryne Fisher mystery ; bk. 9.
In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison and chicken soup. Stopping only for a brief, but intensely erotic, dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls, Bert, Cec, Dot and Detective Inspector 'Call Me Jack' Robinson.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -205).
