Unnatural Habits : Phryne Fisher : Book 19
Publication Date: 1 October 2012
Phryne is back in a thrilling mystery that takes her into dark convents and dank cellars in a frantic search for missing girls.
The decidedly raven-haired Miss Phryne Fisher returns to delve deep into the dark cellars of Melbourne.
1929: pretty little golden-haired girls are going missing in Melbourne. But they're not just pretty. Three of them are pregnant, poor girls from the harsh confines of the Magdalen Laundry. People are getting nervous.
Polly Kettle, a pushy, self-important Girl Reporter with ambition and no sense of self preservation, decides to investigate--and promptly goes missing herself.
It's time for Phryne and Dot to put a stop to this and find Polly Kettle before something quite irreparable happens to all of them. It's a tale of convents and plots, piracy, murder and mystery... and Phryne finally finds out if it's true that blondes have more fun.
