Like other Miss Fisher books it is a most enjoyable read. It is well plotted with clues to the murderer's identity nicely scattered through the book. The descriptions of flying in a Tiger Moth single-engined aircraft are superb. On the negative side the police are hard done by in this book with Phryne not cooperating at all with her friend Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. In fact, as a witness to a murder she deliberately withholds information from him. Then her behaviour at the end when she reveals the culprit is quite disturbing.
