In her twelfth adventure, the Hon. Phryne Fisher must unravel a mystery that began way back in 1918 when seven Australian soldiers unknowingly witness a murder in Paris. Ten years later and two of them are dead ...

The divine Phryne Fisher returns to lead another dance of intrigue.

Seven Australian soldiers, carousing in Paris in 1918, unknowingly witness a murder and their presence has devastating consequences. Ten years later, two are dead ... under very suspicious circumstances. Phryne's wharfie mates, Bert and Cec, appeal to her for help. They were part of this group of soldiers in 1918 and they fear for their lives and for those of the other three men. It's only as Phryne delves into the investigation that she, too, remembers being in Montparnasse on that very same day.

While Phryne is occupied with memories of Montparnasse past and the race to outpace the murderer, she finds troubles of a different kind at home. Her lover, Lin Chung, is about to be married. And the effect this is having on her own usually peaceful household is disastrous.

'Phryne Fisher is young, wealthy, beautiful, smart, confident and independently minded ... and she has a knack for solving murders when she is not sipping a strengthening cocktail or planning another seduction.' - The Australian's Review of Books

      Comments about Murder in Montparnasse:

      A good murder mystery without being too gory. Easy to read and well written. Likable characters that appear in each novel. Mentions a bit of how Melbourne was like in post world war 1.
