Inside this Book – The attack came suddenly. Out of the hot darkness in the notorious Little Lon came three thugs armed with bicycle chains. The tallest lashed his against the crumbling side of a building. It hit a metal sign advertising Dr. Parkinson’s Pink Pills for Pale People, which rang like a drum. ‘An ominous noise,’ commented Dr. Elizabeth MacMillan. ‘The natives are restless,’ agreed her companion. She was the Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher, five-feet-two with eyes of green and black hair cut into a cap. They were not the target of this assault. They were blamelessly approaching the Adventuresses Club bent on nothing more controversial than a White Lady (Phryne) and a dram of good single malt (Dr. MacMillan) and an evening’s exchange of views on weather, politics and medicine. But Little Lonsdale Street was always liable to provide unexpected experiences. However, the person who was fated for a good shellacking appeared to be lone, female and unprotected, which could not be allowed. Phryne turned abruptly on her Louis heel and, putting both fingers in her mouth, whistled shrilly. ‘Look out, boys!’ she yelled. ‘Cops!’ Usually, this was a sound strategy. As police always entered Little Lonsdale Street in parties of four, the thugs would be outnumbered. It was just their bad luck, this evening, that they were led by a foolhardy tough with no sense of self-preservation. News like Phryne got around. He should have recognised her. But instead of a tactical withdrawal, he swung the chain again and struck a sign advertising Castlemaine Bacon (none finer). He advanced on Phryne and the doctor. She looked at her companion.
Inside this book –Unnatural Habits PDF Book by Kerry Greenwood – ‘Oh, dear,’ said Phryne. ‘So soon.’ ‘What?’ asked Robinson. ‘I mean, she was pursuing a very perilous line of enquiry and appeared to have the sense of self-preservation of a chocolate Easter egg in a blast furnace. Dr. MacMillan and I gave her very low odds of surviving. Even so I expected her to last longer than this.’ ‘What was she trying to find out?’ ‘What had happened to three girls who absconded from a nursing home just before they were due to give birth.’ ‘Yes, they were reported missing. By Mrs. Ryan, the woman who runs the home. Bit of a harridan but very religious.’ ‘Did Polly speak to her?’ asked Phryne. Jack sipped at his tea and reached for one of the ginger biscuits. ‘Yes. Interviewed her. Looks like the girls all took off together. Though they might not have stayed together. None of their families have heard from them. Though they wouldn’t expect to, very traditional families, turned their daughters’ pictures to the wall and cast them from their door, the mean bastards. Sorry, Miss Fisher.’ ‘I couldn’t agree with you more,’ Phryne told him. ‘Miss Kettle talked to Mrs. Ryan, told her that she was going to the morgue to look at the unclaimed bodies, which we had already done and they ain’t there, then Mrs. Ryan’s son Patrick saw three men grab Miss Kettle and shove her into a big black car and that’s the last anyone has heard from her.’ ‘I see,’ said Phryne. ‘What do you make of Patrick?’ ‘Big bruiser, not too bright. Idle. Bludger. Lives off his mum and probably steals from her. But she dotes on him. The father took off for Adelaide years ago. Dead, now. The grog got him. He’s her only child. Doubt he has enough imagination to make anything up.’
