    Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne—amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.
    
    In fact, the 1920s’ most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher here, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease. And she does it all before it’s time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she’s flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child, Phryne does everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.

    Bombs, bullets and the remote jungle - and America's coolest covert agent Jake Fonko is up to his neck in it all. 
    Army Ranger Jake Fonko's latest mission - locate a former CIA asset gone missing in Cambodia - has his instincts on full alert. He might be a decorated soldier, but he's certainly no international spy. 
    But Jake, ever the loyal warrior, agrees to the CIA's directive. But no sooner has he crossed the border into Phnom Penh when the bloodthirsty Khmer Rouge roars into town. And as Jake fights to survive in the jungle warzone, the dots begin to connect, all pointing to a startling truth. 
    Maybe that CIA asset was never really missing at all. 
    For fans of fun, fast-moving adventures, the Jake Fonko series seamlessly blends well-researched 20th century history with equal parts white-knuckle thrills, satirical humor and explosive action. If you like Ian Fleming (Bond), John D. MacDonald (Travis McGee), George MacDonald Fraser (Flashman) or Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt), you'll enjoy the Jake Fonko series.   
    NOTE: This is a standalone novel that can be fully enjoyed without reading any other books in the Jake Fonko series.

    An intrepid young journalist investigates the murder of an unknown man in this spellbinding mystery from the Golden Age of detective fiction On his way home after a long night’s work, newspaper editor Frank Spargo stumbles across a crime scene on Middle Temple Lane in the heart of London’s legal district. An elderly man lies dead in an entryway, his nose bloodied. He wears an expensive suit and a fashionable gray cap, but the police find nothing of value in his pockets, and no identifying documents of any kind.   Unable to sleep, Spargo pays a visit to the mortuary in the early hours of the morning and learns that a crumpled piece of paper has been recovered from a hole in the dead man’s waistcoat. Strangely, the name and address it bears are familiar to Spargo. Succumbing to his reporter’s instincts, he vows to get the story and help Scotland Yard uncover the identities of both victim and killer.   President Woodrow Wilson greatly admired The Middle Temple Murder, and his public praise of the novel helped to popularize J. S. Fletcher’s books in the United States.   This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
