The Green Mill Murder is well-written, has a wonderful (and engaging) main character, and a beautiful setting. I appreciate and enjoy the other characters as well (Mr. Butler, Dot, Bert, Cec and especially Jack). I loved the complex mysteries and the unique method of murder (the writer came up with a good one this time). There was more than one case for Phryne to solve in this novel. She ends up having to find an errant husband and help the dance competition winners get their prize. I give The Green Mill Murder 4.25 out of 5 stars (I liked it). The Green Mill Murder has blackmail, murder, a romantic liaison, two missing people (well, technically one is hiding), a jazz band, and a high-flying adventure. The readers are also provided descriptions of Phryne’s gorgeous clothes and the scenery she views from her airplane. I loved the addition of the fun-loving wombat who loves potatoes (thankfully). I look forward to reading the next book in The Phryne Fisher Murder Mysteries.
