Inside this Book – It was eleven by the Green Mill’s clock when the cornet player went into a muted reprise in ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’, and one of the marathon dancers plunged heavily and finally to the floor at Phryne Fisher’s feet. She stumbled over him. His partner dropped to her knees with a wail. The cornet player stopped mid-note. The tall Amazon with the bass gave one final, mellow plunk. Tintagel Stone stood up. The three musicians came forward as Phryne turned the man over with her foot and recoiled, dragging her escort with her. The jazz players bent over the fallen man, and a high female voice, much affected by gin, screamed, ‘The manager! Call the manager!’ ‘Come away, Charles,’ said Phryne calmly. ‘There is something seriously wrong with that man.’ ‘Why, you don’t mean that he’s . . . ?’ began Charles, and Phryne nodded. It had been such a promising evening up until now, Phryne reflected, feeling Charles begin to tremble in her grasp. The monumental ceiling of the Green Mill glittered with electric stars. She herself glittered in a lobelia georgette dress with pail-lettes of Chinese white and diamantes. She had been dancing a foxtrot with Charles Freeman, sole scion of an extremely rich family, who was a tedious but socially acceptable escort. The two remaining contenders for the dance marathon prize (one baby Austin car, value £190) had been dragging themselves drearily around in ever-decreasing circles, requiring Phryne to dance carefully around them. She had been pleased with the dress, delighted with her dancing skill, and satisfied with her partner, who had been sufficiently snubbed to make him stop talking about his dead father’s wealth and his own importance. She had been a little elevated on Grand Marnier, a flask of which reposed in her garter.

Are you sure?’ ‘Yes, Miss,’ said the policeman. ‘I’ve searched the whole place, kitchens and the usual offices and all. He ain’t here.’ ‘Can you account for this, Miss Fisher?’ Robinson had stiffened, like a hunting dog sighting lawful prey. ‘No, except that he was terribly upset by the corpse. He ran off to the lavatory to be sick, I think.’ ‘Yes, he was very shaken,’ agreed Iris. ‘Staggered back from the dead one to sit down on the stand and kept whispering, “I’ve never seen a corpse before.”’ ‘Thank you, Iris. Yes, he was so put about that he might just have run home to mother. And what she is going to say to me for allowing her little darling to be confronted with a corpse, I dread to think.’ ‘It ain’t hardly your fault, Miss,’ said Robinson. Phryne sighed and put back her hair. ‘That will not make the slightest difference to Mrs Freeman, who has never even been introduced to the concept of justice. Oh well, not to worry. Another problem for another hour, that is. Well, Jack, do you want to question us?’ ‘Yes, Miss, if you please, one at a time, and then you can all go home.’ ‘All right, who first?’ ‘Begin with the band, if you don’t mind, Miss. You first. Mr Stone, is it?’ Phryne resumed her seat on the bandstand, lit a gasper, and offered her cigarette case to the group. Miss Jordan refused indignantly,
