The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher is at it again!Running late to the Hinkler gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, Phryne Fisher confronts a gang of thugs and rescues a gorgeous Chinese man, Lin Chung, and his grandmother who mistakes her for a deity. Denying divinity but accepting cognac, she later continues safely to the theatre. But her evening takes yet another unexpected turn as a most bizarre death occurs onstage . . . What links can Phryne possibly find between the ridiculously entertaining plot of Ruddigore, the city's Chinese community, and the actors treading the boards of His Majesty's Theatre? Drawn backstage and onstage, Phryne must solve an old murder and find a new murderer, and, of course, banish the theatre's ghost, who seems likely to kill again.'Phryne Fisher . . . an investigator with all the charm, wit and intelligence of James Bond, and as many lovers.'
