These courageous men and women – young and old, aristocrats and nightclub owners, teachers and students – help downed British airmen reach the border with Spain.

“Highly readable and enormous fun . . . addictive” M.C. Beaton
Abduction, intrigue and death – it’s just not cricket! Phryne Fisher has plans for her Sydney sojourn – a few days at the Test match, a little sightseeing and the Artist’s Ball with an up-and-coming young modernist. But these plans begin to go awry when Phryne’s maid discovers her thoroughly respectable sister has left her family for the murky nightlife of the city’s seamier side. And Phryne is definitely not the woman to say no when two delightful and handsome men come to her on bended knees, begging for her help in finding their friend innocent of theft.
