Phryne Fisher has her hands full in this, her second adventure. And just when we think she's merely a brilliant, daring, sexy woman, Phyrne demonstrates other skills, including flying an airplane and doing her own stunts!Phryne takes on a fresh case at the pleading of a hysterical woman who fears her hot-headed son is about to murder his equally hot-headed father. Phryne, bold as we love her to be, first upstages the son in his own airplane at his Sky-High Flying School, then promptly confronts him about his mother's alarm. To her dismay, however, the father is soon killed and the son taken off to jail.Then a young girl is kidnapped, and Phryne--who will never leave anyone in danger, let alone a child--goes off to the rescue. Engaging the help of Bert and Cec, the always cooperative Detective-Inspector Robinson, and her old flying chum Bunji Ross, Phryne comes up with a scheme too clever to be anyone else's, and in her typical fashion saves the day, with plenty of good food and hot tea all around.Meanwhile, Phryne moves into her new home at 221B, The Esplanade, firmly establishes Dot as her "Watson," and adds two more of our favorite characters, Mr. and Mrs. Butler, to the cast.

Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne—amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.

In fact, the 1920s' most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher here, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease. And she does it all before it's time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she's flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child, Phryne does everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.
