Phryne hosts a tennis tournament to raise funds for female athletes, but things go awry when a player is killed and Phryne's hidden fear is uncovered.

*Phryne is afraid of spiders.
*Hugh returns from his fishing trip at last, and has been promoted to Senior Constable at Jack's insistence.
*Jack also promotes Phryne to Special Constable temporarily (after a paparazzo shot of them in the paper looking flirty gets Jack a call from his superiors forbidding him to work cases with civilians).
*Jack and Phryne play tennis.

Ok, the bit with Phryne trapping the spider with her 'internal device' was kinda funny - but given that during the scene they were all supposed to believe it was the uber-deadly spider whose fangs were strong enough to bite through fingernails, it was pretty ridiculous for Hugh to be picking it up with just a thin piece of paper and the diaphragm protecting him from a quick painful death.

Except that it's Australia. Crazy spiders are a fact of life there, so I can totally buy Hugh being nonchalant about the whole thing.

One of the things I loved about the books was her nonchalant approach to sex, so seeing the "internal device" was a particularly amusing treat. Also I've seen more gif sets of that paparazzo shot on tumblr than I like to think about.
