Inside this Book – The windscreen shattered. Only then did Phryne Fisher realize that the stinging hum which she had heard above the roar of the Hispano-Suiza’s engine was not the mosquito she had taken it for. The windscreen broke into a thousand shards and showered her with razor-sharp fragments. She jammed on the huge car’s brakes, and it rolled to a stop. She brushed glass from her driving goggles and pulled them off. Someone was shooting at her. Even in this year of 1928, with its notable industrial unrest and mounting fears of economic disaster, this was too much. She leaned forward and punched out the remaining windscreen with a small, hard, leather-clad fist. A bitter night. Where was she? The Victoria Dock gates loomed. She peered through the ruined glass but could see and hear little. Two dark figures were running across the road, barely fifty feet away. One fired at her again. The bullet pinged off the wing of the car, ricocheting into the wall of the docks. They had reached the Gas Works’ wall and were scaling it by the time Phryne found her Beretta and leapt from the car, sighting carefully over her arm.
Inside this book –Death at Victoria Dock PDF Book by Kerry Greenwood – Phryne seemed only to have slept for a moment when she was roused by Dot bearing a tray of Greek coffee strong enough to stand a spoon up in. Phryne dragged herself out of the seductive embrace of her feather pillows and groaned. ‘What time is it?’ ‘Ten o’clock, Miss, and a fine spring day,’ replied Dot, with what Phryne considered to be offensive cheeriness. The coffee was, however, good, and the sunlight was streaming in through the window. Phryne decided to forgive Dot and essay a little breakfast after she had taken a painfully brisk shower and rubbed herself awake. ‘That nice young constable is coming at eleven, Miss, and I thought you’d prefer rolls and marmalade today.’ Phryne thought she detected a blush on her maid’s cheek, but it might have been the sun. She smiled, accepted the tray, and broke and buttered her roll in amiable silence. She had dreamed with painful sharpness about the dead young man and the sogginess of his broken body under her hands. Black coffee and cold water were taking the edge off the memory but she still felt that she owed him a life, having officiated over his death.
