This was a fun adventure with Phryne, but not my favorite. It seemed to be a bit slow and rushed all at once. I really didn't like the way one of the mysteries was solved -- as a reader it felt as though the characters had off-stage interactions that were not recorded, and that's not fair. And the other mystery seemed to be interesting but also not as flushed out as it could have been. It was all wrapped up very neatly, but still it was still a bit on the disappointing side.
