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.

I loved every minute of it. One is not often able to read books set in 1920's Australia. The details of a city I know well as a modern 21 century city were delightful and accurate, the characters were wonderfully crafted and just as I would have imagined them to be in the 1920's.
Relaxing, fun, engaging ..... just made you smile and feel warm inside. Wonderful narrator who turned what could have been a very bland read into something well worth listening to. Congratulations - a job very well done.
This was a rather run-of-the-mill lady-detective who-dunnit with a predictably twisty plot (predictable that the plot twists, but not the direction... that was a surprise), and the main character is agreeably spunky without being annoying.
I do have to say, though, this is not exactly what I was expecting, based on the title. I was hoping it would take place in Montparnasse! I was preparing for a vacation in Paris, and was looking to get in the mood. So, if there's anyone else who is whacky like me, hoping to take Paris-vacation-listening with an appropriate theme... this is not it.
rambunctiously soft spoken.
I've got a very big bone to pick with Mrs Greenwood ,she has made me into a insomniac I'm not sleeping because I'm to busy listing to the amazing Stephanie Daniel ,I dusted this one of in three nights I couldn't get enough ,Miss Fishes sorted past and present are colliding ,but nothing flaps our beautiful flapper ,murder , ex lovers and her relations with the butlers strained to breaking point ,wont stop Miss Fisher from doing what she dose best.
I love these mysteries. They're funny, mysterious, entertaining and and a little tongue in cheek. I do alot of long drives and these are perfect.
This (#12) is one of the best of the Phryne Fisher mysteries, not that it is a great mystery, but because it gives so much insight into Phryne and her background. She was an ambulance driver in WWI from the age of 17, and when the war ended in 1918, she settled for a time in Paris and became an artists' model.
Lovely story, great background, and important in understanding how Phryne became the strong person that she is. Very much recommended.
Stephanie Daniel does her usual excellent job with voices and accents.
We see a lot of Phyrne's past in this book which is lovely for the character development.
I really enjoyed the little extra complexity in this story. Definitely a stand out in the series.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
I expected a murder in paris. I bought it based on the review and - dont waist your time on this one. It was one of the books audible offered when they do their sales, so for 4 bucks - I didnt loose much.
