Inside this Book – ‘The elephant was the last straw. All day Mr Butler, strangely resembling Cerberus except for the number of heads, had kept the world at bay. The Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher was engaged in a solemn ritual and all visitors were to be refused, all tradesmen redirected and all trespassers prosecuted. The bell was not to ring and disturb the votaries’ concentration. A holy hush must be maintained. The household had been dispersed for this special occasion. Miss Ruth and Miss Jane had been banished to the moving pictures to see an improving newsreel and a cowboy adventure, have lunch at a suitable café and spend the afternoon blamelessly at the museum. The dog Molly had been muzzled with the femur of what must have been an ox, or possibly a mammoth. Mrs Butler had put on her good coat and gone hat shopping in the city, leaving a cold collation under a mist of muslin on the dining room table. Dorothy, Miss Phryne’s maid and inseparable companion, had naturally joined the rites in attendance, as had the cat Ember. Three times Dot had crept down the stairs to tell Mr Butler that so far it was all going well.
Inside this book –Queen of the Flowers PDF Book by Kerry Greenwood – Phryne woke refreshed after a short but erotic dream about Lin Chung. Dreams about Lin Chung, her Chinese lover, were almost always erotic. He was everything one could want in a lover: skilled, passionate, beautiful, exotic, devoted, and firmly married to the charming Camellia. Phryne was always willing to make appointments for passion, but hadn’t a second to spare for jealousy, scenes, or matrimony. Even her father had given up on finding a suitable husband for Phryne. She sipped at the dangerous, inky-brown Hellenic beverage on which she relied to shock her into wakefulness, and surveyed the day’s activities. Meeting with the Mayor’s representative at ten. Lunch with her flower maidens at twelve. Meeting with Phryne’s favourite salesman, Mr Xavier from Xavier’s Cellars, at four. She was saving Mr Xavier for last, as he was her favourite vendor. What do vintners buy, she mused with Omar Khayyám, one-half so precious as that which they sell? He might even have managed to track down that shipment of Louis Roederer Cristal which had been ordered for the Russian court and which, tragically, the revolution had prevented them from drinking. It had last been seen heading for South America.
