    Phryne Fisher is doing one of her favorite things -dancing at the Green Mill (Melbourne's premier dance hall) to the music of Tintagel Stone's Jazzmakers, the band who taught St Vitus how to dance. And she's wearing a sparkling lobelia-coloured georgette dress. Nothing can flap the unflappable Phryne -especially on a dance floor with so many delectable partners. Nothing except death, that is.

    Would you listen to The Green Mill Murder again? Why?

    Yes, there were nuances that may not have been picked up in original listening.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Great variety of characters meant that you had to be on your toes to keep all the threads linked.


    What about Stephanie Daniel’s performance did you like?

    Very pleasing voice with accents at the right time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Dancing can be dangerous !


    Any additional comments?

    Do not like the reader's singing - should get a singer to do the singing parts.
